SnapShot! 3.0 Released

SnapShot! 3.0 for Dynamics CRM is now available.  Here is a quick overview of what is included in this release:



SnapShot! was enhanced in the following ways:


Report Generation Speed

Internally SnapShot! was entirely re-architected to reduce the amount of time it took to extract data from Dynamics CRM. Additionally, the engines that generate the Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word documents was replaced.  While the performance of each installation will vary, in my test environment this combination resulted in a speed improvement of greater than 50%.


Pack and Go

The ZIP archive technology I was using in SnapShot! produced .zip files that were not compatible with Windows 8 so it was replaced with something that was.


Business Object Report Generation

On the SnapShot! user interface, I separated the business objects from the other Dynamics CRM components. Business Objects include:

  • Business Units
  • Users
  • Queues
  • Teams
  • Security Roles

Since each of these can result in an extremely large Excel worksheet, I decided that the summary reports should each receive their own worksheet.
