By | March 23, 2019

Attach2Dynamics not only facilitates integration between Dynamics 365 CRM and SharePoint but also provides integration of Dynamics 365 CRM with Dropbox. This is not all, our team of solution architects have been continuously working on extending this support to other cloud storages like Google Drive, Azure Blob Storage, Azure Data Lake Storage, One Drive and Box in future. With Attach2Dynamics we appended the missing features of Drag and Drop files and folders, Upload/Download documents, Rename files/folders, Copy Anonymous Link and many others.

One of the most prominent features of Attach2Dynamics is the ability to Copy/Move Notes/Email Attachments to cloud storages of your choice SharePoint or Dropbox.

In a scenario where you want to move bulk of Notes or Email attachments to a cloud storage you can use our new feature called Bulk Migration Jobs. It allows moving of History Notes or Email attachments in batches. For instance say there are quite a number of Note attachments that are to be moved to the cloud stroage. In this case we can create a new bulk migration job. In this new job, we have to specify whether we are moving Email or Notes attachments, Scheduled date and time from when this migration starts and, the tenure of days of which the files have to be moved.
