If you're a long-time Microsoft Dynamics user, I'm sure you've used CustomerSource a time or two. Its long been the go-to place for product downloads, help articles, news and more. But if you've been there recently, you might've noticed some things aren't where they used to be. No, your mind's not playing tricks on you and your memory's not failing you.
Changes to CustomerSource For Dynamics Users: What You Need to Know
- The file download process for updates, hotfixes, etc. will remain the same. The only changes to it will be cosmetic ones.
- As for knowledge base (KB) articles, the easiest way to search for theses is by keyword, rather than their number.
- Redirects between CustomerSource and a resource's new location may no longer be active. So, if you use an old link, you may see everyone's favorite, "page not found" message.
Where Have My Resources Gone?
To help Dynamics users like you adapt to these changes, we created a free cheat sheet with links to some of the most often requested resources on CustomerSource.
For both Dynamics GP and SL users, it includes quick links with easy access to:
- Product directories
- Knowledgebase articles
- Software downloads
- Tax information
- Upgrade information
Plus, email addresses you can use to contact Microsoft directly for answers to all your CustomerSource questions.
To be sure you always have the cheat sheet when you need it, we recommend printing it out or saving a copy to your computer. To do either, simply click the link above to download it.
