Displaying an Office 365 SharePoint Page

One of the most common method for displaying an Office 365 SharePoint page is to add an iframe in Microsoft Dynamics CRM displaying a SharePoint site. As the SharePoint site is displayed within the iframe, there are many limitations and considerations to take into account. These include document lists not created automatically and security issues. When working with the Office 365 products, if we access the iframe in CRM, we will see the message “This content cannot be displayed in a frame.”
