Have you ever wanted to add images to a record, and be able to see those images right on the main form when you open the record in Microsoft Dynamics CRM? Well, search no more! PowerPhoto provides Microsoft Dynamics CRM users the ability to drag and drop (or upload) images onto any type of CRM record, and view those images right when they open the record, with no additional clicks.
- Each PowerPhoto area can support one or multiple images
- If you choose to view multiple images, you can view thumbnails of the image, or scroll through the images
- Have one PowerPhoto control, or multiple PowerPhoto controls per CRM record
- PowerPhoto can be added to any entity in CRM, even custom entities
- PowerPhoto supports .png, .jpg, .jpeg, and .gif photo types (the 2013 version also supports .bmp)
- PowerPhoto 2013 allows users to set a default image to display when the record is first opened
- PowerPhoto 2013 lets users copy an image to the main photo record for out of the box entities
Where are the PowerPhoto images stored?
The photos are stored in the user’s CRM in an entity called PowerPhotos. The photos are compressed before they are stores so they hardly take up any space at all.
How do I get a photo into the PowerPhoto field?
PowerPhoto uses a convenient drag and drop interface – simply click on a photo you’d like to add, drag it over to the PowerPhoto field and drop.
How do I add PowerPhoto to other CRM entities?
PowerPhoto can be added to any entity in CRM, and it’s quite simple to do. All you have to do is follow the instructions in the PowerPhoto user guide.
Can I have more than one PowerPhoto on a record?
Abosolutely! You can add as many PowerPhotos to a record as you’d like. Just follow the instructions in the PowerPhoto user guide.
Why do some of my users get a permission error on the PowerPhoto records?
PowerPhoto comes with a security role that can be assigned to any user looking to view PowerPhotos on a record. System administrators will see PowerPhoto without the addition of this security role.
