Accessing Dynamics CRM Contacts in SharePoint online RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’m already using SharePoint 365 and MS Dynamics CRM online. I've already shared Dynamics CRM folders with SharePoint but would like to integrate the two systems further by being able to Access, edit and create Dynamics CRM Contacts with in SharePoint online... is this possible and if so how?

  • you'd have to do some development to build the interface to actually to those actions in SharePoint, and then the code on the back-end of the SharePoint page to actually communicate with CRM to retrieve Contacts, and update contacts.

    That would be a lot of effort for dubious benefit.  Why are you trying to do CRM activities in SharePoint?  Why not just have a link (or even an IFRAME) in SharePoint that takes the user to CRM to work on contacts?
