Thank you for mentionning the XrmToolBox :)
Got to have Develop 1's Ribbon Workbench in there:
Thanks for the comments! Ribbon workbench was most definitely on the list but somehow was left out on publishing the article, it's going in as an update shortly. Thanks!
Great post. Please consider adding Blake Scarlavai's CRM Dev Tools available in the Chrome store. blog.sonomapartners.com/.../crm-devtools-11-is-now-available.html
Great knowledge sharing - Thanks!
Do you know if there is an update to the CRM2011JobEditor tool for CRM 2013?
The CRM2013JobEditor tool can be downloaded from here:
I would also highly suggest my Earlybound Generator plugin for the XrmToolBox that serves as a wrapper over the CrmSrvcUtil, allowing for advanced customizations to the generated code, as well as handling connection string creation: xrmearlyboundgenerator.codeplex.com
Try This on.....nice to build code for rest opration create, retrive and all.For my CRM friends........crmrestbuilder.codeplex.com/.../611361
I think the MSCRM Toolkit also has it's place here, we've been using this tool on many projects !
