Scheduling Workflows With Microsoft Flow

Cool stuff !!

That CRM Blog

I recently attended the MVP Summit in Redmond and one of the highlights was a ‘Developers vs Value-Adders’ cage match. Essentially, a business problem was presented and the two sides gave a solution using code and configuration respectively. The referee (me) judged the best response for each problem.

One problem that came up, courtesy of Jonas ‘The Friendly Developer’ Rapp was a classic bugbear in Dynamics 365: the issue of scheduling workflows.

If you are unfamiliar with the bulk delete job engine trick aka the ‘Wittemann Manoeuvre’, this was a workaround pioneered by MVP veteran Matt ‘Freakin’ Wittemann so many years ago. In short, you used the Bulk Delete scheduler to run a workflow.

MB2-716 Certification: (Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customization and Configuration) – Revision Guide

The following link is good for certification: Customisation and Configuration…. MB2-716 Certification: (Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customization and Configuration) – Revision Guide Thanks !!

Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Unified Service Desk

I have been completing a series of posts to help people prepare for the MB2-716 certification (Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customization and Configuration). Here is a collection of links to all of those posts. I hope these might serve as a useful revision aid for the MB2-716 exam.

The MB2-716 certification is not easy to study for. At least in my opinion! The reason being the scope of the exam. Dynamics 365 is a large product and therefore customizing it is a big topic. But a fun topic and one you will really enjoy learning about.

Debajit's Dynamic CRM Blog

Microsoft has been focusing recently in Cloud First Strategy for Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Every new cool feature you name, you see it in online first. However as with everything, when you focus heavily on one side, some aspects always gets neglected. And big on-premise customers are at the receiving end recently for this. Believe me as a consultant, I am faced every now and then with the perennial question from my on-premise customers – “When is that feature coming in on-premise?” And many a times I don’t have an answer as well. That the same product has some features which is not present their version of CRM is something very difficult to convince a customer.

Same is the Power BI integration with Dynamics CRM. Just talking of Power BI, it’s a awesome product. And it feels really great when something like this works with Dynamics CRM. And with dynamics CRM…
