Connect To Microsoft Dynamics CRM Using Organization Service

Simplest way of connecting to Microsoft Dynamics CRM is using OrganizationService.

OrganizationService constructor can take connection string or CrmConnection object as parameter.

public OrganizationService(string connectionStringName);
public OrganizationService(CrmConnection connection);

Method 1

Pass the connection string name to constructor.

IOrganizationService service = new OrganizationService("connection");

Entity entity = new Entity("account");
entity.Attributes["name"] = "This is my sample account";

service.Create(entity); 

Method 2

In CrmConnection constructor pass the connection string name, which further should be passed in OrganizationService constructor.

CrmConnection connection = new CrmConnection("connection");
IOrganizationService service = new OrganizationService(connection); //System.configuration

Entity entity = new Entity("account");
entity.Attributes["name"] = "This is my sample account";

service.Create(entity); 

CrmConnection requires following additional assembly to be referenced.

System.configuration 

Method 3

Use CrmConnection.Parse method to create CrmConnection object and pass that to OrganizationService constructor.

string connString="Url=http://crm.contoso.com/xrmContoso; Domain=CONTOSO; Username=jsmith; Password=passcode;";

CrmConnection connection = CrmConnection.Parse(connString);
IOrganizationService service = new OrganizationService(connection); //System.configuration

Entity entity = new Entity("account");
entity.Attributes["name"] = "This is my sample account";

service.Create(entity);

Control Tower for CRM User Adoption

When companies contact us to help them solve their end user adoption problems, of course we try to understand the scope of the problem right away. Unfortunately many (most?) companies can't even quantify exactly how many users utilize the system on a daily, weekly, monthly basis. The CRM administrators are stuck tracking down rumors and myths about their system usage, and these half-truths make the research nearly impossible. Even worse, the administrators can't even quantify whether or not any changes they make to improve the system really improve end user adoption! To help solve these problems, we built our proprietary Azure-hosted application Control Tower that accurately measures and quantifies end user adoption on a day-by-day basis. By deploying Control Tower in your Microsoft Dynamics CRM deployment, you have the objective data you need to measure and drastically improve your end user adoption.
