CRM 2011 now works with SharePoint online
November 7, 2011
I don’t usually blog unless I have something original to say, and try to avoid becoming just another echo in the blogosphere, but felt this announcement is important enough to merit it.
You can now properly integrate CRM 2011 with SharePoint online – in other words the SharePoint list component can be installed and configured properly and the previous problem whereby you could not get the SharePoint online server to serve up .htc files which are a vital component of the “seamless” document management experience enjoyed by on-premises customers has been resolved.
This also means by extension that you now use CRM online with SharePoint 2010 online (eg via Office 365) for a totally cloud-based setup. Note this is supported for SharePoint 2007 and 2010, but only 2010 gives the completely integrated look and feel inside CRM.
Previous problem is described and documented very well by Jukka Niiranen here: Office 365 launches without Dynamics CRM integration
