    Useful post, for every CRM developer similar kind of tool is required currently I am using CRMDevTool
    – to use CRMDevTool need to open the browser dev tool but Dynamics Dev Helpmate is opening on the same page it is a really good feature
    I am going to use it from now, seriously good stuff.
    few suggestions
    – if you show current user, organization information like GUID, user security roles, username
    – if you give model window pop out option, it will be great

      Thanks Sampath for the feedback and suggestions.
      With respect to the User security roles and User GUID, they are being shown as part of ‘Record Details’.
