7 Steps to Quickly Integrate Dynamics 365 and Teams
Today’s business groups frequently communicate across divisions when working on a marketing campaign, pursuing a sales opportunity, or resolving a customer issue. At no additional cost, the Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Teams interface helps you speed up the flow of work by allowing anybody in your organization to access and collaborate on Dynamics 365 records from within the flow of work with Teams.
You may invite anyone in the business to view and collaborate on customer records immediately within a Teams conversation or channel using the Teams integration. You may also make and receive calls from within Dynamics 365, allowing you to complete tasks more quickly. For example, you can share information about the sales opportunity, client history, and more as a seller. As a customer care agent, you can share the client case record, troubleshooting methods, and follow-up activities.
Teams can be integrated with Dynamics 365 Sales, Dynamics 365 Customer Service, Dynamics 365 Field Service, Dynamics 365 Marketing, and Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation. To learn more about these solutions visit our solutions page.
