Have you visited CodePlex lately?

I dropped by CodePlex the other day and was amazed to find no less than 73 CRM 2011 related projects available.  The site has tools and utilities to fit needs from the simple to complex.

Here is a list of a few that I’ve used and pointed others to as well as some that fill a need that I often here people request

SiteMap Editor for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
