After installing the CRM 2011 Update Rollup 11 I’ve recieved a very interesting message:
The Update Rollup 11 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server (KB2739504-V2) completed successfully. However, the database update failed for some organizations.
After studying for a while, what I noticed was that:
A CRM 2011 solution was implemented where one of the business requirements stated that the dashboards charts should present a filtering option.
First small disadvantage noticed is that this option can be implemented in a dashboard only at the chart level and not globally for the entire dashboard.
The new Exam MB2-868: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Applications Exam is available. It seams that there also are some changes into the Dynamics Certifications section in the Microsoft Learning Web Site.
This new exam will count for two new MCITP – Dynamics certifications:
- Applications for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
- Developer for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
I think the structure it will be similar to the one which has already been existing for Dynamics CRM 4.
But even if we can take the exam now it seams that it wouldn’t be shown on the MCP Transcript until September 2011 (from Microsoft Learning Web Site). I wonder why?
For MB2-868 there are already for training courses available (one for each main CRM Section – Sales, Marketing, Service + Service Scheduling):
- 80290A: Marketing Automation in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
- 80291A: Sales Management in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
- 80292A: Service Management in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
- 80293A: Service Scheduling in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
I will go through each course’s instructor notes and come back with more thoughts and details.
