Acquiring LinkedIn makes a lot of sense to me particularly in what they could do with it in just one area; Microsoft CRM.

Mainstream support for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 is scheduled to end on July 12, 2016. With the end of mainstream support, Microsoft will no longer accept product design or feature change requests. Microsoft will continue to support Security Patches and Fixes until the end of extended support which is scheduled to end on July 13, 2016. To ensure your business is not open to vulnerabilities, now is a great time to plan ahead and schedule an update.

There’s no one size fits all for the definition of the word HACKER.  Everyone hacks for a different reason.  In the case of LinkedIn the professional  social network company is finding out a breach of the network that happened in 2012 has fueled Hackers to sell 117 million login passwords on the black market.  But wait, why would this have any real big consequence?

Throughout my support and maintenance activities for customers, a common request is to look into notifications in CRM that are “not being sent”. There are a lot of components and configuration items involved in the process of having CRM send out messages via email.  This blog focuses on some of the most common user-account-related issues that can cause this situation.

Our team was recently presented with a puzzling issue for one user. Outlook would consistently crash when opened with the CRM client enabled. This was in a term server environment, and only 1 user was reporting the problem.

e recently had a CRM online customer describe a “display problem” when using the Microsoft Dynamics iPad app to view CRM records.  When he opened a lookup field on an Opportunity record, the iPad showed possible record suggestions in a black bar running across the screen.  This is the expected behavior on the form. While the list of items showed 3 slots for field data, only the top one showed text, and the other two showed up as two hyphens instead of actual field data – like this:   “–“

I got one of these (Pro 1) about 2 years ago and got the Pro 3 just 3 months ago. We are an IT provider so it is important to put on a good show and walk into a meeting flashing a snazzy new tablet around and wowing the crowd. (I suppose…) I liked my Dell laptop and was a bit resistant to this but after about 2 days – this thing rocked! It weighs less, connects to everything, runs all the full-version Windows apps, battery life is easily managed as it has a solid state drive and goes to sleep/wakes like a champ. I can dictate, type, handwrite, snap a pic, mouse, touch, swipe, gesture… The list goes on. Using this with Office 365 and OneDrive is a cinch and now that everything is synced to everywhere and Office Web Apps are free, I have access to everything, everywhere, all the time.
