Good CRM Twitter Feeds

I had starting subscribing to tweets but often got overwhelmed when I looked at the various CRM tweets I was following.

It wasn’t until I start using netvibes that I found it easy to quickly have a look at the tweets I was subscribed.

Now I have found they are a really good source of information.  I think it’s because people are happy to tweet links to good articles rather than write a blog because tweeting is quick and easy.

The benefit of this is, it doesn’t take you long to quickly scan the tweets to see if there is anything of interest!/GoodCRM!/neilabenson!/mscrmonline!/msdynamics!/dynamicsusers!/MSDYNCOMM!/MSDynamicsCRM!/msdynamicsworld

I hope you enjoy these bunch of CRM twitter feeds, there are of course lots out there but these are the ones I have found the most useful.

if you have any other interesting feeds please leave them in the comments.

windows 7 – how to search for words in documents

The new windows 7 search was beginning to drive me a bit bonkers.

it’s quite clever once you understand it but there doesn’t seem to be any help or any easy user interface to search with.

Basically the windows 7 search works using attributes, you put these in the search box with a : after it.

so if you want to search for a file created today you would put in



or a file containing the word hosk

content: hosk


it’s taken me ages to find the search syntax


Search syntax

Property Example Function
author:name author:patrick Finds items with patrick in the Author property.
author:(name) author:(patrick hines) Finds items with patrick hines in the Author property.
author:(name OR name) author:(patrick OR bob) Finds items with patrick or bob in the Author property.
author:name name author:patrick bob Finds items with patrick in the Author property and bob anywhere in the document.
from:name from:patrick Finds items with patrick in either fromName OR fromAddress, since “from” is a property name for both fromName and fromAddress.
before:date before:10/9/2007 Finds items whose PrimaryDate field contains a date before 10/9/2007.
after:date after:10/9/2007 Finds items whose PrimaryDate field contains a date after 10/9/2007.
