Before you say not again!, CRM 2015 has been announced and should be available by years end. From my initial testing, I can tell you we have reached a very stable, almost turning point with our common CRM platform. Now, like the ERP systems, we are going to see functionality enhancements not system re-designs, while keeping the same interface with some small enhancements around performance and usability. Multi-entity search now available out of the box! 🙂
The CRM team has really delivered, and is keeping the momentum by delivering today. A great way to sum up this new releases to others, its like CRM 2013 R2, but since we had the time, we changed the name too! 🙂
Bob Stutz’s Blog:
Customer Center Get Ready Page:
The Microsoft Product Team has done a great job delivering the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 mobility clients for Windows 8 and IPADs. I noticed a screen shot on the web, where tile related to CRM we posted on the Windows 8 Start Menu for quick access.
I was trying to figure this out, and it’s rather simple. Once inside the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Mobility Client, the first page is the Mobile Dashboard. On that dashboard, you can select the view of activities, account, contacts etc by pressing on the name with your finger or your mouse and drag them down like you would an tile on the Windows 8 start menu.
This will bring up the bottom navigation bar. You can then choose to pin to start menu! As you can see this quick tip will let you immediately access your leads and opportunities right from the start! Enjoy.
