Remarks

The application areas in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 include Workplace, Sales, Marketing, Customer Service, Settings and Resource Center. New areas can be added or existing areas can be removed. However, it is best not to remove the Settings area. You should use privileges to control access to Settings instead.

The Navigation Pane will not display Area elements without visible SubArea elements. SubArea elements may be hidden from users based on security privileges. If all the SubArea elements in an Area are hidden, or no elements are defined, the Area will not display.

Example

The following shows an example of how to use the Area element.

<Area Id="Custom_Area">

  <Title LCID="1031" Title="German Area Title"/>
