Microsoft Dynamics CRM Client for Microsoft Office Outlook may perform slowly when pinning views.


When a view is pinned the records in the view are pulled down to the local SQL CE database in the {orgid.sdf} and cached. When views are pinned, they are presented to a user in "list view" and not "paged views." Each time a pinned view is accessed, it returns results from the local .sdf files.

This data is updated periodically as a background process. If a user has several pinned views or on machines that do not have a lot of resources this can cause slow performance and load issues.


In order to prevent pinned views from pulling down information to local SQL CE caches, a registry key can be set on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Outlook clients. This can also help to reduce the overall network traffic sent from a Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 server to a Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Outlook client machine.

When this value is set to 1, users still have the ability to pin the views; however, the query is sent to the CRM Server to retrieve the results instead of from the local cache.

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
