I often have a situation where I have a record ID and need to open the record form, and the opposite where I have the record form open and I need the ID. Usually I can do both of these by messing around with the URL of a form, however that can be quite longwinded.
To that end I have created Simplicity, a small tool which performs two basic actions:
1. Stripping the IDs out of MSCRM record URLs – useful when have a record open and you want to know its decoded ID.
2. Building a URL to open a record – useful when you have the ID and you want to open the form in CRM.
