    We had an excellent meeting on Friday, and I'd like to thank everyone for joining us.  There was an even mix of users and partners, and plenty of informative and lively discussions.

    Katie Haveles with Microsoft gave a brief overview of 2016 and some of the new features.  My production environment upgraded over the weekend, so I am already lining up time to dive into some of those with department heads.

    As promised, here are the links mentioned in Katie's talk:

    Roadmap Link

    Customer Driven, CRM 2016 Spring Release Event - (This is tomorrow.  Please register soon if you'd like to participate).


    I will start another thread for potential discussion topics for our Q3 meeting, tentatively scheduled for September 9th, @ 1:00pm.  Everyone liked the idea of having a "hit list" of issues, and maybe bringing in an "Expert" to help work through possible resolutions.


    We also discussed the possibility of meeting more than once each quarter.  There is plenty of content to go over, so if someone would like to start another thread on that topic, we can see if participation will match the available content.


    Finally, we spent some time talking about CRMUG Summit.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn new skills, improve existing ones, and even expand your network of resources.  There is still time to take advantage of discounted pricing, and I also have some literature to help 'convince the boss'.  If you still have questions, reach out to the group and chat with previous attendees.


    Again, thank you to all who joined us.  It really was a great meeting, and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again.
