UI Tool for modifying Ribbons while customizing entity form

Author Name: SHUBHI JAGMOHAN

Customizing a form has been made a lot easier in 2011, but we still need to export the RibbonDiffXml and manually import it- which is a tedious process. Can we have graphical editing for form ribbons as well, and then add the 'OnClick' button for the ribbon element using the UI itself?

Thanks in advance!!

I consider this feature quite critical.. along with Shubhi Bansal's suggestion, makes it as easy to attach javascripts to the ribbon buttons as it is to fields in the form. Make easy, make it right. Smiley Happy

Totally agree - the tool that is on codeplex is alright but it is just a pane and you cant do multi tab ribbon changes. Javascript is a pain hiding etc. Ribbon customisation is critical for us to simplify the user experience.

This topic has come up many times during discussions with other MSCRM customers. There appears to be concensus that this is an absolute must-have to take the user experience to the next level. I also agree the RibbonDiff xml "hacking" is not ideal and prone to errors. The "free" Visual Ribbon editor appears to have broken recently for CRM Online. Hope MSFT really listens on this one...

Would also find this helpful. Until Microsoft implements this, i will use the follwing: http://www.develop1.net/public/page/Ribbon-Workbench-for-Dynamics-CRM-2011.aspx Before anyone asks: i dont work for that company, but i realy like this product, cause it spends my time!

Thank you for your suggestion. We are considering this functionality for a future release of CRM. Anusha Shankar This posting is provided "as is" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

The "Ribbon Workbench" from develop1 also has the downside that it uses Silverlight, which some organisations don't allow to install. Anyway, this is such a Basic functionality that it should be included in the MSCRM-standard
