Repository Structure

  • archive contains the old bookmarklets that were used in the Dynamics CRM 2011 days, they're still live and hosted on if you wish to use them for older implementations, or need to do something in Internet Explorer (IE).
  • chromeExtension contains the meat of the new hot goodness. Recently rewritten entirely in React with an eye for maintainability and ease of contribution, this extension is what this repository is all about nowadays. All the bookmarklets of old, plus some new tricks are in here. See the README in that folder for more info on it's architecture.


To put it simply, I would love the help. I worked on Dynamics 365/CRM implementations for nearly 10 years, from CRM 4.0 and up. That is no longer my day job, but I'd love to help update this tool for you if I can. If you'd like to contribute but find anything confusing I'm happy to chat through it.

Thanks for stopping by!
