  • What are you looking to accomplish? 

    If you are looking to add custom content - you can embed an IFrame to another page which you've created to manipulate CRM data or you can create and embed a web resource to provide additional functionality.

  • Deja vu strikes again:


    Using IFD to provide a logon page, and do proper secure authentication would be your best bet. You can customise your logon page with styles and images if you want to make it more like an in-house portal.

    Any other way of doing authentication that does not use an STS (such as ADFS) is possibly flawed and probably unsupported  - especially since there would be nothing to prevent a domain user from simply going to the CRM URL directly, and single-sign-on authenticating them to log on.

    Hope this helps.

  • If you need to control access to users, you could probably try using the inherent security features of CRM by assigning appropriate roles to the users. Through roles you can control entity wise read/write/share access as well as control the depth i.e user level/biz unit or organization.

    If you are looking at custom UI then you are probably looking at designing a custom portal that the users would interact with instead of directly using CRM.

    There is the Portal accelertor for this along with other 3rd party portal add-ons for this. You can develop your own using the CRM SDK if you have the resources.
