These packages are automatically downloaded and installed when you load the project’s solution. For this to work, you must have an active internet connection when loading and building the sample.

Windows Activity Tracker for Dynamics CRM

The activity tracker sample application enables you to connect to your Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 organization, query for your contacts, and add a quick activity record related to a contact.

Use this sample’s source code as a starting point to build your own apps that can access the CRM web services. This sample uses the Microsoft Azure Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL), the SOAP protocol, and the OData v2 protocol.

For this code to work, you must first register your app with a supported identity provider ( AD FS or Microsoft Azure Active Directory). For more information on registering an app with Active Directory, see Walkthrough: Register a Dynamics 365 app with Active Directory. For more detailed information on the sample and instructions on how to build and run it, see the app’s README.docx file.
