Codeless Data Migration to Dynamics CRM using KingswaySoft

This is just great information

Dipankar's Dynamics 365 (#DBDyn365) Blog

Data Migration or Data Integration is a very common task in most of the Dynamics CRM deployments. Data migration often becomes complex with the following:

  • The diversity of data and systems
  • Data integrity
  • Time-consuming for large data set
  • The complexity and intricacy when working with Microsoft Dynamics CRM web service interfaces

Data quality is often very key to user adoption and lack of it can make the system unusable. The bigger question has always remained,

what tool should we use for quick data migration?

Missing Activities tab in Social Pane in CRM 2013

Very nice post from Nishant

Nishant Rana's Weblog

Saving and importing back the solution fixed the issue.

The helpful post

Hope it helps..

Debajit's Dynamic CRM Blog

Looking at the title of the topic, you must be wondering, is it something really related to Dynamics CRM. Well I would say a big Yes. Because it is an excellent HTML 5 feature and we develop HTML 5 webresources in our day-day activities. Being a dynamics crm consultant we sometimes tend to miss out on some cool stuffs outside our CRM universe. For those who have missed out this one, I bet you would love it.

Many a times when we open a HTML webresource on the click of a ribbon button or some element click on the CRM entity form, we tend to pass parameters to the webresource. And sometimes we need to persist the value of the parameter in the webresource even if the webresource is refreshed.

Well you can use the cool HTML 5 feature of sessionStorage.

The sessionStorage persists as long as the browser window…
