CRM 2011 Custom Parameters RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all.  I am attempting to pass data between two forms.  For example, I have added a ribbon button on phone activity form that when the user clicks the button, it will save the current record, close the form and re-open a new phone activity form with two fields populated programmatically.  One of the fields to be populated programmaticaly is the regardingobjectid field, which is a lookup field.  I am using javascript to set and retrieve custom parameter values to achieve passing data between the forms in order to determine who the regardingobjectid will be when the new, blank phone activity form is displayed.  This all works fine because in my javascript I am able to pull the custom parameter values from the querystring on the load event of the form.  Is there a way to achieve similar behavior of passing data between forms if you are accessing CRM via Outlook versus the web?  Because Outlook is desktop, there are no querystring parameters.
