The XrmToolBox is a Windows application that connects to Dataverse and Dynamics 365 (CE). It empowers everyone working with the Power Platform and there are 100+ tools which can be used. It was originally created by Tanguy Touzard but today everyone can contribute both to the Windows application as well as to build tools.

How to get started

You download XrmToolBox from here and install it on your computer. When you run it for the first time you will need to connect to a Power Platform environment (which has a database). Connections are saved so next time you open XrmToolBox you’ll have your connection in place and just need to connect to it.

You find documentation here.

The Tools

The different 🛠 are found under Plugin store. You find a complete list of tool here.
