1 Answer 1

  • Option 1: From SharePoint Point of View:
    You can use the webservices to import data from CRM Online. Any 'end user' solutions all require access to the CRM Database, which is not available in the Online version. You have to synchronise from SharePoint to make sure that accounts are in sync.
  • Option 2: From Dynamics CRM PoV:
    Write a plugin that pushes the needed information to the SharePoint list, again, via webparts. Make sure you handle create, update and delete and make sure that users cannot edit the list via SharePoint.

I think the second option is the most solid.
