Tracking Lync calls: CRM 2011 Outlook plugin RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the preview pane of a Lead I can directly call a lead in Lync by clicking on the phone number.

    Is that phone call tracked as an Activity against the lead - can it count towards goals

  • Hi Andrew,

    No, the phone call is not automatically tracked as an Activity against the Lead. There may be some addons for CRM in the Dynamics Marketplace that will help you achieve this requirement.

  • Hi Andrew,

         Roshan is right. This is not possible OOTB but easily achieved using third party CRM add-on. Here is one for the same.


    Hope this helps.

    Lync feels like a half implemented half baked idea - it gets you half way after demanding all your blood then gives up leaving you feeling robbed.

    Well if I can get the business case to get the cash: I'll see if I can solve this
