Teams is really shaking things up, and the advantages that it has over slack is simply its integration points into Office 365 and overall productivity. In my last post I discussed the integration with Visual Studio Team Services. There’s another integration which while not complete, will be able to offer a lot of value. This integration is with Dynamics 365 and I think what this does for teams is takes it out of the realm of a developers tool and makes it really relevant for all users.
For this Demo I created a new Channel called D365 Test. Remember that connectors are configured on channels and not teams/projects. Right click the channel and click connectors
Select the Dynamics 365 Connector
You will then be requested to sign-in to Dynamics 365, once you sign in you will be prompted to choose an instance and a record. Use the wildcard to display all possible records.
Once you save your channel will then display the activities for the Dynamics record that you’ve selected. As I stated this currently isn’t that useful in its current state but I see the potential to get information in your team for important opportunities, accounts etc.
