This week, Microsoft Mechanics goes hands-on with the latest Dynamics CRM 2016 to highlight Office 365 integration for sellers, admins and developers. Eric Boocock from the Dynamics team demonstrates how CRM creates Office 365 Groups to improve collaboration while leveraging Azure Machine Learning and Cortana to report interactive insights.
Office 365 Groups are shared workspaces where group members can collectively get things done. When you set up a group, it automatically creates a shared inbox, group calendar, a place to save and share files and notes, plus planning tools. In today’s Microsoft Mechanics show, we take a tour of the recent updates to Office 365 Groups and highlight the new Office 365 Groups header and discovery experiences.
See how Lotus F1 Team leveraged Office 365 APIs and extensibility to update their legacy travel application—complete with calendar and directory services integration.
