  • How MTC’s Gravity Services Can Solve Your Accounting Woes?

    Most SMBs kickoff their financial transactions by incorporating entry-level accounting software such as QuickBooks. But as they grow in time, this entry-level accounting software seems to be inefficient particularly having scalability issues.

Thus, MTC’s Gravity Accounting Software assumes significance.

  • Description Template for Microsoft Dynamics 365/CRM

    MTC has built a new add-on named “Description Template” to help CRM Users build a collection of description templates beforehand and populate them wherever needed on CRM entity records for speeding up their jobs. Currently, Microsoft Dynamics 365/CRM doesn’t have such a functionality to make CRM users more productive and efficient. Although the application sounds simple, yet it has a powerful impact in terms of adding value to resource productivity.

    The back end configuration is simple where users can start adding text to description box and save them as templates. Also, it is from here that users must configure the application on target entities and give the logical name of the record field on which the description template must be populated. Once the configuration settings are done, user needs to do one last activity to start using the functionality which is to add a web resource to select the desired descried
    description template on the record field.

    Below is the detailed explanation on how Description Template works for your Dynamics 365/CRM.

  • Multi-File Uploader to SharePoint – A Must Have Addon for Dynamics 365/CRM Users

    Multi-File Uploader to SharePoint is another Multi-File Uploader add-on series from MTC. Multi-File Uploader is built by MTC with an intent to make life easy for CRM Users who are required to upload multiple files of varying sizes to SharePoint from within their CRM instance. It is important to note that the standard CRM functionality has an upload limit of 50MB and recommends users to upload files directly to SharePoint beyond 50 MB. This has a crippling effect on the CRM users who would like to have a trace of their upload to SharePoint back in CRM. Also, a user cannot upload multiple files at one go, instead he must select each file at a time to upload them. This is seriously time consuming and very unproductive. This is where MTC’s Multi-File Uploader to SharePoint assumes its significance.

    The good thing about Multi-File Uploader is that it is pre-configured by default on all entities that support document
