Drag & Drop documents from within Dynamics 365 CRM to Cloud Storages right through Embedded UI

Our seasoned team of Solution experts have been amongst the earliest adopters of Microsoft technologies. We have developed quite a number of solutions that augment the functionality of Dynamics 365 CRM. One such solution from our suite of productivity tools is Attach2Dynamics.

Attach2Dynamics’ every functionality is unique and not supported by Dynamics 365 CRM inherently. This makes it a potent tool thereby enabling you to implement significant actions like Drag & Drop, Upload/Download files/folders and others to SharePoint, Dropbox and Azure Blob Storage from within Dynamics 365 CRM.

Users can perform actions against an Entity record for which the Connector is configured, and Entity Configuration is done. Doing so enables the Attach2Dynamics button for the respective entity.

However, it is also possible to add Attach2Dynamics tab embedded in the form without having to open it from the Ribbon Button. Below the steps for the same are mentioned:

Go to Settings -> Customizations -> Customize the System

A Default solution will open. Here are the steps how to create an embedded tab in the Form of a particular Entity.
