Support for solution packager to extract files into the project
Add support for solution packager to extract files into the project after a publish to CRM - make it optional during a publish. Currently this would need to be done via creating build scripts and updating the targets. It would be nice if this was built in to CRM Solution Manager and could be controlled by the UI.78 votes

This feature will be added to v5.×.
Support Plugin Profiler
I know the ToolKit uses the Plugin Reg Tool to do most of the work, but incorporated in Visual Studio. One feature of the Plugin Registration Tool that isn't with the ToolKit is using the Plugin Profiler. I assume you know what it is, but just in case, it's a solution for CRM that comes with the sDK/Plugin Registration Tool (PRT), from the PRT you can install the solution into your CRM solution, and once installed you can replay plugin messages, workflows, and then by attaching visual studio to it, you can debug. Seems like this would be a great feature for the toolkit.

Compare webresouces - advise stale copy before publish
We sometimes have multiple developers working on same webresources. Ability to download the latest from CRM before start of edit and to compare server version with the original downloaded version before publish will allow us to know if some one else have make script changes while I am working on a file. This will prevent developers overwriting each others changes. Comparing local and server files manually each time you modify is not productive.18 votes

- more if you like :)
Support deploying to CRM by providing an API that would support using from a command line or from a .Net app.
Should be able to call an API to publish a crm asset or plugin/workflow assembly to the CRM organization taking into account all the XrmToolkit configuration information.11 votes
The initial version of this has been released in v5. It supports merging (ILMerge) of plugin assemblies and publishing them to CRM. A future release will include the ability to deploy other assets, ie web resources etc.
Support versioning of custom workflow assemblies
It would be nice if XrmToolkit supported the concept of versioning workflow assemblies in Dynamics. If you increment the major or minor build number of a workflow assembly, you can register a new copy of that workflow assembly with that new version and then switch over the workflows to the new version at your leisure. Here's an article on how it works: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customer-engagement/developer/workflow/update-custom-workflow-activity-using-assembly-versioning10 votes
Support for CRM Developer Toolkit Packaging project
I know there is a ton of overlap between the CRM Solution Manager and the CRM Developer Toolkit.
If I develop a solution that has a Packaging project from the developer toolkit, I can ensure other CRM developer can deploy customizations. The only problem is that I can't right click an Web Resource in the Packaging project and quickly publish to CRM using the CRM Solution Manager.10 votes
Add a method to proxy classes to lookup option set values via string
It would be nice if the the ExtensionMethods or some other feature in the BaseProxyClass would return an option set value via text based on the [Description] in the enum. Perhaps this already exists but, I did not see it in the documentation.
OptionSetValue ov = new OptionSetValue(ExtensionMethods.GetOptionSetValue("Active"));9 votes
Ability to register plugin as data provider
I would like the possibility to register a plugin as data provider. Data providers are used in virtual entities.8 votes
Drop idea "D365 Tools Window" - not re-inventing XrmToolbox concept
Instead provide your "tools" as XrmToolbox plugin for paying customers, if the tools you sell offer a reasonable extra value compared to those already available in XrmToolbox.
Rather focussing on things XrmToolkit differentiates from any other tool.8 votes
Ensure correct DateTime operations
Ensure correct DateTime operations. Now Dynamics CRM supports two mode of working with dateTime attributes.
With or without UTC conversion.
It would be nice if generated proxy will take it into consideration.6 votes

Add Entity Metadata Repository
Instead of hardcoded metadata information inside proxy classes, it would be awesome to provide this information inside a repository.
var entityRepositoryItem = MetadataRepository.GetEntity(param entity);
var attributeItem = entityRepositoryItem.GetAttribute(string name);
CRM data model in source control
We would like to have crm data model to be kept in TFS including entities and fields. We want to track/version any changes on the data model, associate these changes with proper workitem in source control.6 votes
Add Actions and Views to generated proxy classes
It would be great to be able to select Actions and Views to automatically generate their own proxy classes. For Actions, it would generate a strongly-typed proxy that accepted the typed parameters and returned the output parameters. For Views, it would generate a proxy that lets you quickly get results from System Views on each entity by just querying that View proxy. This way you could quickly model queries in Dynamics in the Advanced Find and then easily reference them in code.6 votes
V7 was just released which includes support for generating proxy classes for ‘Actions’. For more information on this release see here: https://xrmtoolkit.com/WhatsNew/WhatsNewInV7
publish on Build instead of Save
I tried using the option to auto-publish on Save, but I actually save a lot (because VS crashes hurt) and only want to incur the publish delay when things are in a particularly good state. In other development this is when I do a Build, and I do build my CRM client scripts (Typescript ftw), so my ideal would be for a build to publish files changed since the previous build. Slightly less ideal but still good: publish all of the project's checked-out files. Worst case, manually flagging files to publish works, too.5 votes
