CRM Tip of the Day had several great tips worth checking out:
  • Recurring Goal Creation Strategies – Goals are a nice feature but you need to create a new one for each time period, I cannot just say I want this same goal every month. However, there are some ways to make this recreation a bit easier. This post goes through those methods and what each entails.
  • Check your Duplicate Detection Rules after Solution Imports – I have personally needed this tip within the last few weeks. Make sure you check your Duplicate Detection rules after each release to make sure the rules you need published are still published.
  • What does “reparent” Mean? This walks through what the Reparent cascading relationship means and the security effect it has on your system.
