Just came across requirement where we needed to generate lots of data in CRM system..
Microsoft Dynamics CRM Demonstration Tools (for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0) provides lots of functionality and one of them is Generate Bulk Data for any CRM entity with just few clicks…see below steps for the same..
