Do NOT let her potty in the crate! That will defeat the purpose of crate training and cause all sorts of problems. Keep her in there with the crate pan or a bed, if she doesn't rip it up, and just make sure she only has room to turn around. It must not be large enough to allow her to potty in it at one end and stay dry at the other. Your job will be to take her out often enough so she learns that the potty is outside! If you need to set up an indoor potty of sorts, which is far from ideal, there are other options but it should never include the crate.

Also, I am very glad you're bringing your pup indoors! GSDs are not good outside dogs; they need to be inside with the family. Unless they get hours of attention every single day, an outdoor GSD tends to suffer, so it's great you're going to be raising her as an indoor dog now!
