We are using CRM 2011 and I was curious what is highest level I can use Follow on Record Wall? For example instead of following individual users, can I follow teams or Business Unit?
Any info would be much appreciated as I am having hard time finding any info on this.....
Thanks so much!
You can only follow the records on which you have read privileges and access rights. If you lose read permissions, a follow is automatically removed. All Microsoft Dynamics CRM users automatically follow themselves. You can only see the posts that are regarding the records or mention the records on which you have read privileges and access rights.
if you are on a upper team, still, you would need to create a view per team or a view per unit. look like that it is not possible to create new views for the feed entity
"Posts to the wall of the user assigning the case. Teams don’t have walls and does not create posts on walls of all members of team "
I think it is possible to follow any records in CRM, because the follow record is basically only based on regarding field,
you can try using workflow like this:
*Just change the regarding field to your Team and the Owner to yours
But, I haven't tried exactly for your scenario. Just a assumption, okay.
but the problem is here:
Once you follow a User, you can see their updates, their posting, their activities right?
But if you follow a Team, I think you can still follow, but, again, this purpose here is you only you follow Team, but not their updates...
I will suggest you, to create a custom workflow on the team to follow..
Then, need a custom workflow activity to retrieve all members of this team or BU.
Then create a follow record for all the members..
Hope this helps!
