Is there a way of exporting leads from MS dynamics 4 in a way that includes the lead id in a column.
The lead ID is in this format and is used to browse a lead directly using a url:

21299244-02FA-E111-AEC1-00505681DB0E

So to view a lead record directly we would use something like this:

https://test.cloud-crm.co.uk/SFA/accts/edit.aspx?id={21258244-02FA-E111-AEC1-00505681DB0E}

We are trying to screen pop a lead record from another system.
There doesnt seem to be a way of showing the lead id (unique key) anywhere.

Yes, if you use Export to Excel and select the option "Make this data available for re-importing by including required column headings" record ids are included in the Excel spreadsheet in a hidden column.

That is correct. But Excel will open the document.
