Report writing with CRM 2015 for online and on-premises


Applies To: Dynamics CRM 2015

Microsoft Dynamics CRM includes reports that provide useful business information to the user. Microsoft Dynamics CRM also includes a Report Wizard that can be used to easily create reports in just a few steps without using XML or SQL-based queries. For more information about the Report Wizard, see CRM Help & Training: Create, edit, or copy a report using the Report Wizard.

However, to create more complex reports, you can either create your own custom reports from scratch, or use an existing Microsoft Dynamics CRM report as a template. The topics in this guide show you how to create new reports or change existing reports using Microsoft Visual Studio as the report writing tool.
