Want to see what the latest Microsoft Dynamics Marketing 2015 release looks like in practice? While there is now a 30 day trial available, there are quite a lot of steps needed in setting up the content and configuration for an actual campaign. Instead of starting with this, why not just sit back and let Laura Robinson walk you through a 60 minute in-depth demo about the most interesting areas in the Dynamics Marketing application.

Rollup Fields in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 offer a great new capability for counting records of values from child records. However, the results are not calculated in real time but rather through a system job that runs once an hour. Luckily there is a method available in the CRM SDK to force the recalculation of Rollup Fields for records. What's even more convenient is that this can now be done via a custom workflow activity, thanks to this free solution from Demian A. Raschkovan. #MSDYNCRM   #CodePlex

The new Rollup Field feature in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 allows us to configure automated calculations from values found on child records. In this example, you'll see how the behavioral data from email campaigns sent via +ClickDimensions can be summarized onto contact level, to give new insights on which customers are responding to your marketing efforts in #MSDYNCRM .

Upgrading your Microsoft Dynamics CRM server environment to a new version can be stressful, due to the "big bang" nature of moving from one environment to another. But what if you could keep both your old and new CRM servers up and running simultaneously, by migrating one user at a time once they've been given training on the new CRM version functionalities?

This blog post is about performing a complex enterprise upgrade and development project, where you transfer the end users incrementally from the old system to the new one. Incrementally meaning tha...
