Vote for 'Command Bar Workbench for Dynamics CRM 2013'
As we all should know, the Ribbon is being removed in Dynamics CRM2011 and replaced with the 'Command Bar':
However, the Command Bar is still customised using RibbonDiffXml and the Ribbon is still there on a few system forms and in the current version of Microsoft Outlook's list views.
So the question is...What should we call the Tool?
Personally - I'm leaning towards sticking with Ribbon Workbench.
Have your say!
Thank you to those of you that voted on this – it was almost equal between the two, so I’ve decided to stick with Ribbon Workbench for the following reasons:
1.The Command Bar in CRM 2013 is still defined with RibbonXml, but rendered differently. A new DisplayRule is used to exclude certain buttons from the CommandBar.
2.The Ribbon is still present on non-refresh entities and in Outlook so it’s important to still have support for Ribbon editing.
3.Since the Ribbon Xml remains unchanged, it’s important to understand and differentiate between Tabs/Groups and Layouts.
4.The Ribbon Workbench is already an established ‘brand’ than people know about.
So until we have CommandBar XML in a future version of Dynamics CRM – it’ll always be the Ribbon ‘XML’ Workbench with a silent ‘XML’!
The Ribbon Workbench for Dynamics CRM 2013 beta will be available for download very soon:
-Dynamic switching between the Command Bar/Ribbon view
-UI refreshed to match Dynamics CRM 2013
-Support for new Dynamics CRM 2013 schema
