Apps for office and MS CRM 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello experts,

    I am planning to build a custom UI for MS CRM 2011. My idea is to build

    1. UI completely using Jsavscript

    2. Should be able to use it as a normal web application as well as with Office 2013 as an app

    how can do this? how can i create an app and use it for web also? this should allow the user to do almost all the operations that he can do from CRM UI.

    Thanks,

    Raja


    Thanks,

  • Hi Raja - what you are doing sounds possible with the caveat that when you design for the apps for Office UI you have more size restrictions (and some behavioral differences) over a standard web page that will require special consideration.

    Building an HTML5 app that uses CSS and JavaScript is well aligned with our new model.

    Think of it as building a web page that, when launched as an app for Office, also has access to the hosting document.

    Cheers...pc

  • Hi Patrick,

    Thanks for the response.  Are there any documents or links to get the behavioral differences between apps and traditional web pages?

    I see that apps can even load my asp.net pages and mvc pages also (its html for the browser anyway) do I get any restrictions on the managed code if i want to build the same asp.net site for apps and normal web site?
