Blake Scarlavai over at Sonoma Partners built a very cool Chrome add-in called CRM DevTools. This applies to CRM 2011 UR12+ and CRM 2013 and allows you to quickly find the record’s GUID without having to remember Xrm.Page.data.entity.getId() or typing any of this into the console directly. The tool also allows you to execute fetch and see the results. This is a great time saver and something everyone should have in their toolbox.
Here’s an excerpt:
CRM DevTools is an extension to Google Chrome which can be found here in the Chrome web store. This extension provides a variety of tools to help optimize customizing and troubleshooting within Dynamics CRM.
- Displays the current form’s back-end information
- Entity Name
- Entity Id
- Entity Type Code
- Form Type
- Is Dirty
- Ability to show the current form’s attribute’s schema names
- Ability to refresh the current form
Current User Information
- Domain Name
- User Id
- Business Unit Id
There is a lot more to what this add-in can provide. Here’s the original post. I think this is a great idea and I’m excited to see if more and more functionality is added to this down the road.
