Optimizing CRM Security by Team

thumbnailThere’s more to the concept of Team Ownership in Microsoft Dynamics CRM than you may originally think, which means you’ll want to give that topic significant consideration and understanding before embarking on a security model that utilizes team permissions or team ownership. In releases prior to 2011, the concept of Teams existed but Teams were simply groupings of users. Since version 2011, a Team can actually own its own records, and can have its own security role(s), giving CRM architects more options for building more complex security schemes. Let's talk about these options now!

“It’s Not Me, It’s You”: 4 Reasons Why Your CRM is Failing


CRM10Failure, at its core, can take on many forms. When it comes to CRM, failure can mean a low adoption rate, un-integrated platforms that lack of one view to customer/partner/prospect data, or a costly investment with no return. Many assume that as technology has evolved, failures have decreased. The C5 Insight team set out to find out the truth about CRM failure. Is it on the decline, or are we kidding ourselves in thinking it possibly could be?

9 Tips to Re-Engage your CRM Use

Extend Your Dynamics CRM Dashboards Using SharePoint

We use dashboards very heavily internally and have recently expanded our set of core metrics and KPIs to be about 12-15 charts and graphs (depending on special events we may have, etc.). In this post I will tell you about a fairly quick way to create rotating dashboards with SharePoint. SharePoint is the perfect solution for our needs because it allows us to stay within our core systems and leverage the platform.

Dynamics CRM Rollup 12: Not as Forgiving About Currency Field

Microsoft’s Rollup 12 is not as forgiving as previous versions when it comes to the Currency field. After applying Rollup 12 to an on-premise instance of Dynamics CRM 2011 (this one happened to be running the Internet Facing Deployment deployment) but not enabling the Enhanced User Experience (aka Flow UI), we noticed that we could no longer qualify leads.

Dynamics Workflow History Auto-Purge: Do’s and Don’ts

In deployments with a decent amount of workflows that fire constantly (i.e., system jobs are spawned), the amount of records placed in the AsyncOperationBase table is quite impressive. However, when these system jobs complete (canceled or succeeded) they remain in this table until you decide to purge them. When these tables begin to grow into the millions of rows it imposes undue performance issues on the Async service and overall system performance may suffer as well.

Role Based Business Logic Strategy for CRM 2011

Security roles are inherited by child business units in Microsoft Dynamics. As I mentioned in a previous blog Sneaky Cylon Copies of Your CRM Security Roles, security roles have linked copies that have the same name but are separate entries with their own unique guids for each business unit. This creates an interesting situation when you want to base business logic on a user’s security role memberships. Since the only thing that is effectively guaranteed to be the same between parent and inherited security roles is the name you need to enact some design patterns to use them in a consistent manor in your code.

Dynamics CRM Security Role Harvey Balls

Harvey BallsI was on a conference call the other week when Jack Bender, a Senior Consultant from Microsoft, mentioned Harvey Balls in reference to security role privileges. Later on I asked him what the heck he was talking about with this Harvey Ball stuff. If you already know the whole Harvey Ball story then feel free to roll your eyes and give me the gas face. I just thought it was a somewhat odd description of the little balls used to adjust security permissions. For those of you who don't know what Harvey Balls are here is a brief summary so that when the time comes and you hear about Harvey Balls or you just want to impress someone by talking about them you'll be in the know.
