SSRS Reports Scheduling For Microsoft Dynamics CRM Reports

Posted by Lena Daproza on Jun 24, 2015 10:00:00 AM

Microsoft Dynamics CRM reports offer a wide variety of canned SQL reports. From sales pipeline reports to invoice status data, CRM can give you a complete view of your customers and sales people, and how the two interact. Many organizations integrate Microsoft Dynamics CRM reports with MS Outlook, making it easier for users to access account data and reports. However, some users may find it less than intuitive to find, run and view the reports they need. Moreover, making sure each user has the proper rights to specific reports can be a challenge too. Sales partners may want to view and understand their sales performance, but the CRM administrator is rather hesitant to give outside groups access to internal systems. Many sales people and managers work in the field, therefore getting into CRM to run a report can prove to be difficult. Even worse, there are cases where administrators have to run and deliver the reports themselves! This is where an “out of system” report scheduler can swoop in and save the day.
