Importing a New PowerPack

The first step in getting started with any managed solution in Microsoft Dynamics CRM is to import the solution under the Solution section of CRM. To navigate to this section, you would simply go to Settings > Solutions > Select the Import button from the ribbon. This will prompt a dialog box that will walk you through the import process, which is shown below.
