In Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM, businesses use notes and attachments as a way to capture and organize important information related to their customers and business processes. Notes allow users to record free-form text about a particular record, such as a customer or sales opportunity, while attachments enable users to upload and associate files such as documents, images, and videos. This information can be used to provide context, document interactions with customers, and share important details with team members.
Overall, notes, emails, and sales literature attachments in Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM are valuable assets for businesses to manage and track important information about their customers and operations.
Over time, these attachments can consume a significant amount of storage space within your CRM system, ultimately impacting your CRM performance. This can occur when the default CRM storage is exceeded. To avoid this issue, it is important to regularly monitor and manage storage usage by deleting old attachments and implementing policies for controlling the size and frequency of attachments.
However, deleting important attachments is not always an option. So, one way to efficiently manage Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM storage space is to move CRM attachments to alternate sources/cloud. But manually moving attachments to the cloud can lead to challenges like human error, data corruption, and time inefficiency.
This is where Attach2Dynamics comes in.
