SnapShot! 3.0 for Dynamics CRM is now available. Here is a quick overview of what is included in this release:
SnapShot! was enhanced in the following ways:
Report Generation Speed
Internally SnapShot! was entirely re-architected to reduce the amount of time it took to extract data from Dynamics CRM. Additionally, the engines that generate the Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word documents was replaced. While the performance of each installation will vary, in my test environment this combination resulted in a speed improvement of greater than 50%.
Pack and Go
The ZIP archive technology I was using in SnapShot! produced .zip files that were not compatible with Windows 8 so it was replaced with something that was.
Business Object Report Generation
On the SnapShot! user interface, I separated the business objects from the other Dynamics CRM components. Business Objects include:
- Business Units
- Security Roles
Since each of these can result in an extremely large Excel worksheet, I decided that the summary reports should each receive their own worksheet.
The following new features were added.
This singular report allows you to see what entities and fields are being audited. Read more about this feature here.
Automation Testing Matrix
This feature creates a comprehensive list of all of the workflows and plug-ins defined within the system which will allow your QA department (or the developers) to develop testing scenarios which will activate the various automation components to ensure they are functioning as designed.
