New XrmToolBox plugin: Audit Center

Today, I’m releasing a new (and certainly the last, at least for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011) plugin for the XrmToolBox : Audit Center.

The name speaks for itself: This plugin will allow you to manage the entities and attributes that should be activated for the audit feature of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. As usual, it should avoid boring steps when you want to configure your CRM application.

Instead of opening each entity to activate or deactivate audit, then repeating for each attributes, you will be able to performs all these tasks in a single place.

Here is what it looks like:

The tool displays only entities and attributes that are valid for audit. You can then add/remove entites/attributes with the corresponding buttons. When change are detected, the button “Apply changes” is enabled. “Applying changes” does not activate or deactivate audit feature. It just update entities and attributes.

To activate/deactivate audit feature, use the button in the toolbar.

As usual, this plugin among all others is available on the XrmToolBox project page.

New XrmToolBox Plugin : Easy Translator

Hi all,

As I wrote few weeks ago, I was working on a translation tool. It is now finished and available as a XrmToolBox plugin.

The features are described in my previous post

Just few more info:

  • I tried to include ribbon items translation. Even if I was able to export ribbon labels, there is no way to update them directly using SDK (except exporting/importing solutions).
  • After having exported translations, please do not change anything on the Excel workbook structure, especially sheets name and colorized cells.
  • When using this tool, please backup your organization before importing translations. I made some test but can’t assure there is no risk even if I’m only using supported methods

Here's what the interface looks like

As usual, to download it, go to CodePlex
