When configuring the CRM Online 2011 Outlook client, many customers choose to have their end users configure manually, and I’ve had a few customers ask me if it’s possible to configure the CRM Outlook client with their CRM Online organization silently. While it’s not necessarily an easy process, it is technically possible to silently configure the CRM Outlook client. The steps that you’d need to follow to complete this process are as follows (steps specific to Windows 7):
<Deployments> <Deployment> <DiscoveryUrl>CRMOnline</DiscoveryUrl> <Organizations> <Organization IsPrimary='true'>OrganizationUniqueName</Organization> </Organizations> </Deployment> </Deployments>
Note: The OrgnizationUniqueName value must be populated with your CRM Online organization. OrganizationUniqueName is case-sensitive. You can get your Organization Unique Name at: Settings – Customizations – Developer Resources. An example would be crmNAorg2jas2.
Another option to consider when configuring the CRM Outlook client is to use the /QR command. The /QR command configures the application in a reduced UI mode. This option requires a configuration file in XML format specified by the config parameter. When configuring a CRM Outlook client to an on-premise org, this option acts similar to the /Q parameter, but displays installation progress bars and all error messages. When the /QR command is used to configure to a CRM Online org, the user will be prompted with the following configuration screen in order to provide their WLID credentials:
The next step would be for the user to select the Test Connection button and fill in their WLID credentials:
The user would then select their correct organization (if they are members of multiple CRM Online organizations). They’ll also be able to give their organization a Display Name before selecting OK.
