Joe CRM here for a somewhat untraditional post. I’ve kind of gone behind R&D’s back, so I’m probably not making any new friends in that department this week!


I know the R&D team at PowerObjects is working fast and furious developing for the new Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 release. I know they’ve got all the PowerPack add-ons compatible for the upgrade to CRM 2013. But I didn’t know they were already making significant headway into optimizing them to take advantage of CRM 2013 features.

I mean, check this guy out.

PowerGlobalSearch for CRM 2013

He obviously did not want me taking pictures!

What I saw on his screen was a slick new version of PowerGlobalSearch with native integration into CRM 2013.

I tricked one of the developers into sharing a screenshot of PowerGlobalSearch 2013 with me. He probably didn’t think I would stab him in the back by posting it on the blog. He should have known that Joe CRM plays by his own set of rules. Sucker!

PowerGlobalSearch for CRM 2013

At this point I can only guess at what is being developed by the PowerObjects R&D team, but looking at the screenshot, it appears they have found a way to leverage CRM grid and load data into the CRM chart view, or they have developed controls that look exactly like CRM 2013. I’m hesitant to say exactly what I think this means, so I’ll let readers come to their own conclusions…

I don’t know when we will see the new PowerPack features released or any details about the design, features and implementation, but based on what I’ve seen, I can’t wait to see new add-ons redesigned for 2013!

Happy (sneaky) CRM’ing!
