Use documents stored in SharePoint from Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online
Before you can store documents for a record in SharePoint, you must do the following:
- Enable document management for the record type.
- Make sure that the corresponding folders are created in SharePoint to store the documents.
If the site that you are using to store the documents is on Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, and if the site collection under which the site is hosted has the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online List component installed, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online delivers the documents similar to other list of records in Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. Otherwise, the documents are displayed in an IFrame instead of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online list. To have the appearance and behavior of a Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online list, ask your administrator to install the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online List component on the SharePoint site collection.
- Open the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online record that has the documents you want to manage.
- Under Related, click Documents.
- From the Document Locations list, click the location that has the documents that you want to manage or work on.
- Perform any of the following tasks.
