If you’re looking for a more visual representation of records in your system, you’re going to love PowerMap! Once a user has selected an entity and a view, this PowerPack add-on plots all of the individual records from that view on one map. You can map multiple entities, map multiple views at one time, and save your customizable preferences within PowerMap, including map configurations, zoom levels, and views.

Features

  • Supports any entity – as long as it includes an address field.
  • Clicking a pin on the map displays a summary of the record and provides auto-options for things like directions, emailing, assigning, adding to a marketing list, and more.
  • Bulk actions – like assigning the records or adding them to a marketing list – are also available for all pins on the map.
  • Open a record directly from the map simply by clicking on the name of the record in the summary view.
  • Map more than one entity/view on the map at a time.
  • Choose a separate pin for each entity or view you are mapping.
  • Save map and legend configurations so that you can return directly in the future.
  • Share your saved map and legend configurations with your team, saving them time from having to create their own.
  • Heat mapping is available to show where clusters of records exist.
  • Put PowerMap directly on any form in Dynamics 365 to see other records in relation to the one open on your screen.

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.

  1. To begin the import process navigate to Settings > Solutions in your CRM environment. 
  2. Click on the ‘Import’ icon. 
    IMPORTANT: If you do not have the proper security permissions to upload a solution you may need to contact your CRM Admin.
  3. “Browse” and select the PowerPack solution file that you have previously downloaded to your desktop, once the zip file is populated select “Next”.  
  4. The next screen will verify the details of the solution you are about to import, select “Next” to move on.
  5. On the next screen you will have to make sure that the “Enable any SDK message processing steps included in the solution” option is selected. Once this box is checked, select “Import” in the lower right corner. 
    IMPORTANT: If you do not select this checkbox the solution will not function properly.
  6. Once you have selected the import button a new dialog box will appear showing you a progress bar for the import. This step usually takes between 5–10 minutes, depending on the complexity of the solution. 
  7. Once the import has completed, you will see a screen with an overview of the import and components. Simply select close and move onto the registration process. 

Once the import has completed, double-click on the PowerPack solution you just imported from the solutions list in CRM. This will open the configuration screen of the PowerPack solution, where you can select if you'd like to register for a 30-day free trial or subscribe to the add-on.

Under the “General” section fill-in the required information, including your communication preferences, once you have completed the form select the “Submit” button which is located under the “Profile” tab of the form. 

In order to successfully register and use a PowerPack Solution you will need to agree to the terms of our License Agreement, Terms of Service and our Privacy Policy. Please note, declining the terms of use will stop all PowerPack functionality. 

Learn more about our updated Terms of Use.

Some PowerPacks require connections back to your CRM environment to process data from our cloud. If your PowerPack requires this connection, you’ll see fields for service user username and password. If that is the case, please input credentials of a user that has, at minimum, the Powerxxx Service User security role assigned. This security role includes the minimum level of access this user needs, in order for the add-on to function properly.

Note: This user cannot have two-factor, or multi-factor, authentication turned on. 

For information on using the solution please refer to the corresponding user guide.

Updating a PowerPack Solution

All of the add-ons are constantly being enhanced with awesome new features, so it's always a good idea for users to make sure their PowerPack add-on are up-to-date.

Updating an add-on is quick and easy! Simply follow these 5 steps:

  1. Download the latest solution .zip file from the respective PowerPack web page
  2. Log into CRM and navigate to Settings > Solutions
  3. Click Import and walk through the import steps. Remember to select the options to Overwrite Customizations and activate and processes upon re-import. If presented with the option to "Stage for update", leave the checkbox un-checked.
    Note: Choosing to Overwrite Customizations will only overwrite any back-end plugins that may have been updated since the previous version was installed.
  4. Once the import has completed navigate back to the solutions list and double click on the PowerPack you just imported to open the configuration. Here you may be asked to clean up the components of the solution. If prompted, select ok.
  5. Once the clean-up has completed, select Submit to re-sync your registration with the PowerObjects registration system and you are done!
