Modifying the CRM Navigation Menu

The CRM navigation menu is customised via editing the SiteMap XML file that is stored in CRM. To access this file you export the SiteMap via: Settings – Customisation – Export Customisation

There’s already plenty of useful instructions out there for editing the SiteMap so if this is all new to you then you should start there. I recommend: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd393294.aspx

The end result can be a personalised, streamlined menu with instant access to key functionality and no clutter.   Here’s a few tweaks that might give you some ideas:

In my next few blogs I’ll show you how to achieve some of the above customisations.
