PowerGlobalSearch is a universal productivity tool that is beneficial to any Microsoft Dynamics CRM user trying to find records in CRM. This add-on gives users the ability to quickly search across any entity in CRM . Whether it is an out of the box entity, custom entity or activity and pulling their search results into one grid or negating the need to conduct multiple searches from different areas in CRM, PowerGlobalSearch is the go to records tool!


If you are anything like me, your dashboard is constantly open throughout the workday.  I know having the ability to search across any entity right from the dashboard, and see my results without having to take additional steps would be a life-saver. Add in the benefit of not having to open individual sections and records to get the information I need, and my day just a much more efficient.
