  • During interviews, i usually talk about candidates prior experience while playing with challenges like:

    - Scenario to design an application

    - Infrastructure planning

    - Workaround product lacking in mailmerge, templates, reporting, workflow, UI.

    - Auto numbers

    - Infinite loop 

    - Synchronous VS asynchronous plugins

    - Deployment Issues

  • Interesting forum post. :)  I would suggest identifying which version of CRM they are most familiar with.  For example, developers that have worked solely on CRM 2011, won't know "Dynamic Entity."  Also, for question #8 the max number of tabs is different for CRM 4 vs CRM 2011.

  • Elevating this as a sticky-thread for a short while to see if we can get more good information contributed to this discussion.  I think there's a lot of good information here that would make natural articles in the TechNet CRM Wiki.  Authors and contributors are welcome to provide any insight both here and there.

  • Of course, a good interviewer would use such a list to help decide what not to ask an interviewee, as I'd hope the interviewer would prefer to determine actual experience with CRM. It can be a fun game...
