Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Working with our large number of healthcare focused customers, we often come across EMR (Electronic Medical Records) systems. Many EMR solutions exist in a very competitive marketplace, with some leaders, such as Epic, Cerner, and GE, anchoring the larger enterprise EMR solutions and companies, such as Athena and CareCloud, providing cloud-based EMR solutions focused on the smaller practices and hospitals.
Things are about to get technical! We love helping our customers and other Microsoft Dynamics CRM users have a smooth experience with their solutions, in this blog I talk about a recent error I found and how to approach it. Enjoy!
Recently I was importing records into a custom entity and ran into the following error attempting to upload the CSV data file of Zip Code data.
Another exciting new features in Microsoft Dynamics CRM is the fact that we can finally change the theme of our environment to make it more personal. Some people don’t notice the little things like this, but for other users that are more visually-oriented, it is a pretty big deal. (See what I did there? Pretty?) Anyway, let’s get started - I'm using Clothing 4 Kids as our non-profit organization example.
As a great Minnesotan once said: times, they are a changing. The seasons are changing, and with that comes a new release with great functionality from Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM has a ton of pre-built (most used) entities, such as Account, Contacts, Opportunities, and Cases. However, sometimes you need your environment customized even further to meet your needs. For instance, if you own a residential business and would like to track property listings in your CRM you could do this by creating a custom entity. Let me show you how.
To create a custom entity, follow the steps below:
Dashboards provide a user with an overview of data at a glance, such as the dashboard of a car. One of the first things I did when I started using Microsoft Dynamics CRM is create my own personal dashboard to help me visualize the data I utilize on a day-to-day basis. There are several default dashboards available (discussed in my “Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 Spring Release: Default Dashboards” blog), but I would recommend creating a personal dashboard and filling it with the main components in which are utilized and familiar to you.
