In an effort to write about something that is off the beaten path and perhaps a bit useful in everyday life, we are going to discuss old photos.  If you have a bunch of old family or cherished photos lying around, and have no time to take them to an analog-to-digital service, then do what more and more people are doing these days.  Use your phone!

Here at Beringer, we take great pride in developing exceptional software to create impactful solutions for our customers. One common practice among developers, is the use of Unit Testing. Testing software allows us to run our application locally and verify it can perform the required tasks before deploying it into an operating environment. This method allows developers to write tests for each specification of the software to check the features of the software, even when a development CRM environment may not be available.

A complex password is your front line of defense against your work or personal accounts being compromised by a cyber intrusion. The stronger this front line is the less likely you are of becoming a victim of a cyber-attack. Per the FBI’s website the threat of cyber-attacks is incredibly serious and growing. Cyber intrusions are also becoming more commonplace, more dangerous, and more sophisticated.

PowerApps are the latest addition to the Microsoft Business Application platform, which allow you to develop your very own custom app with minimal coding experience. You can easily connect to existing data sources and services like Excel files, SharePoint lists, Dynamics CRM and custom APIs, and then automatically generate a purpose-built business app.

Beringer is striving to create real value in our customers’ CRM systems. We enjoy developing creative solutions for Microsoft Dynamics CRM systems. We regularly are tasked with producing Migrations and Integrations to Microsoft Dynamics CRM from other applications as a data source. Yet, recently I was challenged to migrate data from one CRM Online system to another.

Integration of Office Delve with MS Dynamics CRM Online 2016 is here!  Office Delve identifies information relevant to you and others from your company’s OneDrive for Business or SharePoint in Office 365.  It identifies this information based on your work patterns and is a great tool to help you find and discover information fast, both on areas that you are currently working on or working with others on.

We recently discovered an issue with Outlook classifying legitimate Emails as junk. Valid emails from clients as well as emails from within our organization were being sent to our junk folder. Mail is classified as Junk in Exchange Online and within the Outlook client separately. We had the Junk Filtering in Outlook disabled before this problem started so for our case we knew it was an issue with Junk Filtering in Exchange Online.

CRM 2016 U1 is here and it’s full of new enhancements!  If you currently work in Dynamics CRM Online, then you’ve most likely received a notification to schedule your upgrade. I’ll bet you can’t wait to upgrade and take advantage of all the new features … but should you? Microsoft goes out of their way to ensure a smooth transition between their versions, but there is some deprecated functionality that will affect your system.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM comes with many bells and whistles that just aren’t utilized. Even when you first open your CRM Online instance, you are immediately taken to the Dashboards area. We have numerous clients who wish to create new charts and dashboards for both management and users. However, sometimes the data they are looking for is already available–if you know how to get to it.
