Works great. No problems with IE 10

  • Overall Rating 4.5 stars

Reviewed by:MDoddio73 Reviewed on:7/18/2013

Pros
Pros: Great way to send out detailed alerts via their native plugin code or via Workflow (using the "Post" entity). Using Activity Feed Posts instead of Emails for internal CRM users cuts down on CRM related Inbox clutter. Ability to add hyperlinks to the posts makes it easy to get to the record in question. New Collaboration features such as "Likes", Comments and filters make it more user friendly. No issues with IE 10 that I have seen.
Cons
Cons: If you use multiple Role-Based Forms, you need to manually add and configure the web resources to your form. A little time consuming, but the MSDN article gives you all the steps necessary. Don't know how this behaves in and UR #12 environment, though. It would be nice if the Wall Posts gave client side alerts (eg, via Lync or the Outlook client).

Pros
It's a nice idea, needs to be polished though

It's does not work well neirhter with IE10 nor with Outlook 2010 (scripts have bugs and errors pop up).

Release an update for IE10 and Outlook and then start to polish the idea in terms of usability.

Nice add on to have - a little buggy but Great!

  • 4.5
  • Overall Rating 4.5 stars

Reviewed by:ArvindViswakarma Reviewed on:1/24/2013

Pros
It is a nice addon to have. Very nice page layout and smooth UI
Cons
Its a little buggy. It tends to fail in multiple server deployment. It always points to a single server which probably was there during first install. This means if service URLs available in Developer Resources page are not working/pointing to some other server, then we have problem with activity feed too. Probably the js files are using getServerUrl method at few places?

Good addition from MSFT

  • 4.5
  • Overall Rating 4.5 stars

Reviewed by:crm_mesiter Reviewed on:10/27/2011

Pros
Great competitive addition when considering other CRM vendors. Easy to install.
Cons
Could only install for Leads, but not Accounts and Contacts. Still needs some work for customized environments. For example, if you have multiple forms for accounts, all you get is an error saying you need to implement manually for each form. Need better documentation on how to make that happen (step-by-step). Also, it appears custom entities are not supported for Activity Feeds?
Additional Comments
Technical documentation for customized environments would be nice. Technical documentation on using Web Services to feed from external sources (like Social blogs/RSS/etc) would also be nice.
