Activity Timer

Activity Timer
For Microsoft Dynamics CRM

Overview

A Fixed time could be applied to a Phone Call Activity to function as a minimum time charge for uncompleted calls and upon a conversation starting the Activity Timer can be manually started to override the fixed time with the actual call duration. An "Auto" function setting allows automatic starting and stopping upon Open and Close of the selected Activity types which greatly reduces User time tracking errors and enhances professional productivity. Actual Timed Duration field added by this option is available in CRM Activity and History Views, forms, and custom reports. This utility is sold with Per User Licensing equal to the number of Dynamics CRM Licenses enabled.
