CRM 2011 Tool – Solution Import for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011

Tanguy, everyone’s favourite CRM MVP, who is also known as the CRM Tool guy has been busy.  He has created a tool for importing solutions into CRM 2011.  You can read about the solution on his blog or get it from codeplex

Initially I wasn’t sure of the value of this tool because it didn’t seem that different from just importing the solution yourself but after a bit of thinking and investigation I think I understand the benefits.

Basically the tool saves you some time because it imports the solution, activities the plugins, workflows and publishes the solution as well, all with one button press.  I have to say I often forget to publish the solution.

    The reason I developed this tool is when I was updating ribbon using text editor, it was a pain to import the solution for each try to ahve the good controls in the ribbon…

    The different import options are just here to have a complete tool but are not always useful (I think about converting to manage solution)
