  1. Acces to XrmToolkit on multiple instances(2) with one license.

    As a developer, I'm using at least two laptops for developing software. I would love to have an option to transport my license when I'm developing. Now, I need tot think about activating the license on a virtual machine and move the virtual machine from one to another.

  2. 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.

  3. Provide NamingServiceExtension for proxy classes

    Currently it is not possible to adapt the name of proxy classes during generation.
    Please provide an extension to provide custom names for proxy classes and properties.

    Some generated names does not fit our naming conventions. For example special chars in german ("ß", "ä","ö" ...) or properties which will start in lower case or underscores in names.

    It would be awesome to have the possibility to extend the INamingService implentation of XrmToolKit.

  4. New Project Type for Ribbons

    What I heavily miss in CRM Solution Manager is support for customizing Ribbon/Commandbars of MSCRM.

    There are some Point/Click tools in the CRM community available which does the job of customizing of ribbon/commandbar more or less well, but they have all there pros and cons and nonone covers the full scope, what is possible.

    In my mind people customizing & developing with CRM Solution Manager have full and substantial CRM Developer knowledge in my opinion including XML and XSLT-Technologies.

    So my prososal is very simple:
    1. Please create a new Project Type Ribbons/Commandbars
    2. Implement Menu Items for export/import/publish "RibbondiffXML"…

    Thank you for submitting this suggestion. Implementing what you suggest is not a simple task and we have other higher priority items currently planned. With that in mind we have no immediate plans to provide this functionality. That being said, we will certainly monitor the number of votes that this receives and perhaps reconsider this at a later date.

  8. 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…

  9. Support multi select of C# projects to publish all at once

    With a solution structure, where every plugin has an own visual studio project its very hard to publish multiple plugins at once. (e.g. when a method in the base class has been changed)
    Please support multi selection of C# projects, like on webresources by "Right click" > "CRM" > "Build and publish".

    Thanks,

  11. 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.

  12. Easily update all proxy classes

    Currently, there is no easy way to update all the existing proxy classes (with their respective option sets). Right now I have to select all the class files in the solution explorer, right click, then click 'CRM -> Regenerate...'

    Maybe there could be an option group called 'Proxy Classes' in the context menu for the project where you can either add proxy classes or regenerate all

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

    Something like
    OptionSetValue ov = new OptionSetValue(ExtensionMethods.GetOptionSetValue("Active"));

  16. 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.

    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.

  17. Show custom actions in the "Message Event" list when creating new plugins

    Currently, only system messages are available when creating/registering new plugins (e.g. Create, Save, Update, etc.). Users should be able to select from active custom actions that have already been created as well. Microsoft's plugin registration tool currently supports this.

    Add Entity Metadata Repository
    Instead of hardcoded metadata information inside proxy classes, it would be awesome to provide this information inside a repository.

    Something like:

    var attributeItem = entityRepositoryItem.GetAttribute(string name);

    Console.WriteLine(attributeItem.Max Length);
    Console.WriteLine(attributeItem.Logicalname);
