Hey Deepesh…A Good post. Have a question on it. Parature has a self service portal, can that be integrated with Dynamics CRM ? If so, how is it done ?
Hope this is what you are looking for: https://technet.microsoft.com/library/e6944ce3-8e2e-4566-a5de-fa801ad63866.aspx
I will do a step by step on it soon.
Currently I am exploring the trial version of Parature. When I try to create a new customer record the password field is missing. Without this I am unable to try out the customer login. Any idea on solving this?
Is there any way I can check out the workflow of customer interacting with a CSR?
Aplologies for the delay in my response. The customer login is intended for customers only.
I will still check and update you.
