Tip #7: Use In-Private Internet Explorer sessions to work in multiple CRM Online environments

Sometimes you need to work in multiple CRM environments simultaneously. For example, if you are moving customization from a development environment to a production environment. This can be somewhat difficult if you have environments that are both CRM Online, but use different Office 365 accounts. If you just open your browser and log on to the second environment while logged in to your primary environment, it will tell you that you are not a user in the second environment, and if you hit log out and log back in, it will kick you out of the first environment.

One answer to this challenge is “InPrivate browsing” in Internet Explorer. If you are already logged in to one environment, and you launch second IE session by right clicking on the Internet Explorer icon and selecting “Start InPrivate Browsing,” a private IE window will open. From this window you can log in to a second Dynamics CRM environment under a different credential than you use with the first environment.

Want to get to InPrivate browsing faster? Create a desktop shortcut. Make the path for the shortcut “C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Exporer\iexplore.exe” -private.
