Recently, I have been creating new trials of CRM Online and Office 365. Actually, for integrating SharePoint Online with CRM Online for some presentations.
Maybe you already know it or maybe not, but since last July, 19th, all new Dynamics CRM trials as well as conversions to paid version are provisioned by the Microsoft Online Services Portal (MOSP or MOP), the same as Office 365.
This allows users and administrators to get a unified and consistent experience, in addition to enable the possibility to set up single sign-on (identity federation) between on premises Active Directory and MS Online Services. Up to July 19th, Dynamics CRM Online depended on Windows Live ID and luckily it does not anymore :).
I honestly have to confess that the integrated experience within the MS Online Services Portal pleasantly surprised me. It really works pretty nice and makes our lives easier . As everything, it also has some room for improvements, but in general, it’s great!.
I want to share with you in this article some screenshots of this experience, by subscribing to Dynamics CRM Online first and then adding Office 365 as well as vice versa, by subscribing to Office 365 first and then adding Dynamics CRM Online.
Hope you enjoy it and give you a glimpse of these enhancements.
Now, we can also do it the ‘other way’, meaning setting up an Office 365 trial first and then including CRM.
For doing so, let’s navigate to: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/online-software.aspx and click on ‘Free Trial’.
We have went through some screenshots that quickly depicts how to create Dynamics CRM Online and Office365 Trials (in any order) and how to the Microsoft Online Portal gives us an integrated, consistent and intuitive experience to administer it all in the same place.
I hope you find this article useful.
