Here is a screen shot of the new organizational hierarchy (taken from the excellent top ten feature article)
Microsoft’s naming convention of using years in the product name can be very confusing.
I have often thought this year was 2013 because I talk about CRM 2013 all the time.
The code names are totally forgettable, Vega? They seem to be designed only to add more confusion when I haven’t got a clue what version people are talking about.
Talking about Microsoft, I recently wrote a couple of articles which you may find interesting on LinkedIn
If you want to read the full release guide (I wouldn’t be writing this blog post if I really thought you did) you can find it here
Hosky Highlights of CRM 2015 enhancements
The first piece of good news is the release is for both versions of CRM (online and on-premise). This is good news for developers/consultants and customers.
Looking at the highlights Microsoft seemed to have really focused on delivering some of the enhancements people have been asking for and I think it’s great Microsoft are listening to the Microsoft Dynamics Community. I would also say some of the new features are really completing the features they added in CRM 2013. CRM is always moving onwards and upwards.
I thought I would have a look at the CRM 2015 highlights from a developer/consultant view e.g. how will it effect the solutions we are creating.
Field Level security for out of the box fields
Finally at last, this has been top of the Microsoft Connect enhancments for at least 10 years. You can now add field level security to standard CRM fields
There is a new Client API for business process flows, you will programatically be able to access
Active and enabled processes
Calculated field (e.g. Doing sums), nice
Will have support for IF/Else if/else, which means you won’t have to create twice as many business rules as you need
Business rules will also enable you to group them
Improvements to the business rule editor
They have continued to improve this and you can now sync attachments
Mark some in outlook as private to prevent syncing to CRM
sync appointments and tasks
You can view the organisation in a tree view, awesome, I have been asked for this by feature by quite a few customers over the year.
You will be able to search different record types, yes a global search
There are lots of other features for you to find out about and you can read lots of other blogs with that information, I just wanted to write about the things I think look really good.
CRM 2015 will no longer work on
