Tool Bar

Are you using the many helpful tools in Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement? I’ve found that many users rarely take advantage of the handy icons that are in plain sight – right at the top of CRM.  If not, I’ll tell you more about them, so you can be more productive and use your CRM solution more efficiently.

1. Search

Search

Clicking on Search will open a text box for you to type a string to search. This will search all entities that have been set up for Search. Up to 10 entities can be set up, including custom entities.  See your administrator to add or remove them.

Search List

Results will be returned in columns, allowing you to click on the record you need.

Search Categorized

 

2. Recently Viewed Items

Recently Viewed Items

Clicking on this icon will show you the most recent views and records that you have visited in CRM.

Recent Views

Click on the view or record to go directly to it. For views or records that you frequent, clicking the push pin will keep it in a handy location at the top of the list.

 

3. Quick Create

Quick Create

Clicking this icon will give you a list of entities that have a Quick Create form. This is for when you are in a hurry and need to get a record created. Quick Create forms are set up by your administrator and are available based on your security role.

 

4. Advanced Find

This option opens the Advanced Find window. It allows you to create a more advanced query to find the records you need.  Advanced Find is a topic for another blog.
