Welcome to my knowledgebase, which started as a place for me to file information that I find (mostly about Microsoft Dynamics 365/CRM) and are likely to forget. Many times I searched for something only to find my own article.
Feel free to browse and if any of the information helps you in your work then that is great.
Use the search box or the tag links to search for articles.
I’m an experienced Microsoft Dynamics 365/CRM Consultant and Microsoft Certified Trainer available for hire on an ad-hoc basis. Please contact me to see how I can help with your Microsoft Dynamics project. Find out more about me.
