In this blog, we highlight a lesson learned when we used a Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement online data source connector, called Instance Web API, for Power BI reports.
If you haven't had the chance to experience the wonderful world of Windows 8 yet, you're missing out. As a company 100% focused on Microsoft Dynamics CRM, PowerObjects has been exploring the potential of Windows 8 by developing our own app that serves up Dynamics CRM on a Windows 8 platform.
The app, lovingly called Power8CRM, entices users in, starting with a classic Windows 8 live tile that tells CRM users that there is some sort of action going on in their CRM. Maybe they've got new leads assigned to them, or they've got new information in their activity feed from records they're following.
Having this sort of information front and center on your Windows 8 start screen naturally makes you want to open the app and see what's new! Once you do open the Power8CRM app, you'll be instantly presented with a plethora of visually appealing information right at your fingertips.
When you first open the Windows 8 app, you will be brought to the Sales Hub, which will show you a summary of your sales pipeline, your tasks and your activity feed. You can delve into each opportunity or task simply by touching it, and watching the record open up on your screen.
This awesome app will let you work an opportunity all the way from entering a lead to closing an opportunity, all while you're on the road. With Windows 8 and the Power8CRM app, you no longer need to be chained to your desk to use CRM – the world is now yours to wander as you choose, taking Microsoft Dynamics CRM with you as you go! Ah, the power of Windows 8 and mobile CRM.
If you'd like to try the Power8CRM app, just download it from the AppStore on your Windows8 powered device (tablet or PC). It's free! To learn more about what the Power8CRM app can do, or how to use it, visit the Power8CRM web page.
