Portal Options for Microsoft Dynamics 365

Many Dynamics 365 (formerly Dynamics CRM) solutions involve external or occasional users who do not need access to the full Dynamics 365 user interface and would be better served with a simplified view of selected forms and reports.

Microsoft does not charge additional license or subscriptions for external users of your Dynamics 365. 

Here are some products that provide portal functionality for Dynamics 365:

Dynamics 365 Portal

In September 2015, Microsoft acquired Adxstudio which had long been providing a portal for Dynamics CRM and a less powerful, free version under the auspices of Microsoft.

Microsoft used Adxstudio as the basis of its latest portal product, Dynamics 365 Portal which is available for Dynamics 365 users as part of the Plan 1 subscription bundle. 

Here are the steps to activate a Dynamics 365 Portal.

Dynamics 365 Portal is not available to run on premises.

The Portal Connector


Pavliks offers The Portal Connector for Dynamics CRM based on Telerik Sitefinity. The Portal Connector is priced at $14,995 ($3,000 of which is for the Sitefinity software license) with an optional e-commerce connector for $7,000.


Because The Portal Connector is based on Sitefinity, you also end up with a complete content management system for your website.


Microsoft Adxstudio

Microsoft has discontinued development of Adxstudio, but made it available on GitHub for on premises implementations.

    The DATA Act Driving Grant Management Automation

    The Digital Accountability and Transparency Act enacted in May 2014 calls for making spending data available in open, standardized formats to be published online.  It is a continuation of transparency initiatives and lessons learned with experiences such as grants.gov, the 2009 economic stimulus under the Recovery Act and the spending site USASpending.gov.

    Government grantees will have significant new administrative responsibilities.  Many organizations that were tracking grants in spreadsheets or documents will have to adopt more sophisticated automated grant management systems such as Microsoft Grants Manager to keep up with reporting rules.

    For profit companies will lose some privacy as a result of this law.  Grant recipients will be required to disclose information including officer salaries.
