I only keep a pup crated when I'm sleeping or can't keep an eye on them or need a break. Otherwise I tether them to me with a leash. This way when they squat to pee or poo you can just scoop them up, take them outside and praise a lot.
Also, I would put the crate next to your bed at night so you can stick your fingers in there to comfort her. That will help her feel more secure.
My dog Chama was also kept outside before I got her. She was very easy to housebreak because she was already used to going outside!
