On July 1st (Thursday), I’ll be presenting an MSDN webcast titled Integrating Microsoft Dynamics CRM with SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010. This is a topic that I’m very passionate about, so please feel free to participate and ask plenty of questions! It is a level 300 webcast for a programmer/developer audience, so I’ll go deeper into some of the development areas.

Date: Thursday, July 01, 2010 11:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada)

Below is the abstract for the webcast. Let me know (by leaving a comment below) if you’d like me to cover anything specific that might be of interest to you.

Line-of-business (LOB) applications can have a far-reaching impact when they are tailored specifically for the needs of an information worker. A LOB app like Microsoft Dynamics CRM is the most effective and powerful when it is integrated with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and Microsoft Office 2010—these products complement Microsoft Dynamics functionality.   Attend this webcast to learn some of the developer patterns and practices you can use when building applications with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. We also review the new Microsoft Dynamics CRM software development kit (SDK) update from May 2010 to show how it simplifies Microsoft Dynamics CRM development, and we walk you through some simple yet powerful demonstrations.

See you on Thursday!

    Great to see this sort of content being offered as a webcast. If possible, we would like to see how we can access MS CRM from SharePoint 2010 for metadata. We would like to tag documents which are stored in SharePoint with an Account name and Opportunity name. We would like to make data entry easy for the users. When a document is created in a document library we would like to present a list of Accounts the sales person owns. When an account is selected the opportunities created within these should be shown (i.e. show cascaded relationship) and made available as a metadata tag.

    Also, could you publish on your blog where you we can find the recording of this webcast (it will be 4:00am here when the webcast starts)?

    I agree.  I'd also really like to see a recording of the content and/or slide deck.  Thanks.

    @Justin,

    In one of the demos during the session, I showed an example of Custom Office task pane that pulls data from CRM using webservices and including dependant dropdown (like the account-opportunity example you mention).

    Once you have the data, it's just a matter of using Office APIs to update the document metadata. Hope this helps.
