One of the great features in Dynamics CRM is being able to display data or websites from other software packages via an iframe. While working with the Office 365 products, I wanted to display a Sharepoint iframe in CRM 2011. As I accessed the iframe in CRM, I received the message “This content cannot be displayed in a frame”.

sharepoint iframe in CRM 2011

With a few changes to the Internet Explorer settings we can make this page display correctly.

  1. Open the internet explorer tools and open the Security tab.

  1. Now select your trusted sites and select sites.
  2. Make sure you have your CRM site as well as your SharePoint site add to the trusted zone.

  1. Once you have your trusted sites setup, then select custom level from the Security tab

  1. Browse about half way down the list till you see the setting for Displaying Mixed Mode. Set this option to “enable”.

  1. Select ok and restart your Internet Explorer. Now when you log in the iframe displays correctly.

Hope this CRM tip save you some time!

Happy CRM’ing!
