  • Hi Huubert,

    All records in MS CRM are URL addressable. So if the menu item you want to "link to" points to a new account form, you can access the form directly from your custom menu item. You'll need to add the Menuitem to your ISV.config file. You can view the sample ISV.Config file in the MS CRM SDK help file.

    Or 

    You can run workflows using Javascript. Jim's post below demonstrates how to do that.
