Along with new branding, the fall release of CRM for Dynamics 365 brought many updates. Many are available for both Online and On-Premises, some – for now – are Online only. As we kick off our CRM for Dynamics 365 webinar series, here is a list of a few of our favorites.

CRM for Dynamics 365 Top 10 New Features

1.)App Modules – as functional areas spread this new WYSISYG designer allows for creating app modules – essentially sub-sets of the overview organization’s functionality.

2.)Site Map Designer – a complementary feature to the app modules is a built-in Site Map editor to create a site map for each of the app modules. No longer will we have to use a third-party tool or edit the sitemap directly!

Bonus feature (we just couldn’t leave this one out!) Power BI Integration – With CRM 2016 update 1 we could natively embed Power BI tiles. With Dynamics 365 we can now embed entire dashboards. Leveraging the new Web API we can access more information than ever for our analytics.
