Renaming the Composite Field displays in Microsoft CRM 2016
In Microsoft CRM 2016 the UI has been updated so that now the address appears as a composite field, this takes all the fields within the address and connects them together in one easy to view pop out screen. It looks like this: –
Whilst this is a neat solution the perfectionist in me dislikes the fact that it refers to US terms in regards to the address as indicated above, it refers to State/Province and ZIP codes which are not used here in the UK. In previous iterations of CRM you used to just change the name of the field but this does not update it on the composite address. To fix it you need to do the following: –
We found some interesting statistics on IT & software trends, budgets and expenditure. It’s great to see that SME’s are more appreciative of the power of IT & Software and how it can be used to drive improved performance and define a US.
Conditional formatting within Microsoft Excel can be used to segregate or sort data into groups. This helps you to gain a clearer picture of the story your data is telling. In our infographic below we have set up a simple 4 step process which shows how you can do this.
There are lots of options to choose form when utilising conditional formatting, from defining when the rule(s) should be applied through to how you display the data segments within your data. Have a play around with it and see the different ways you can present your data.
Microsoft Excel is used to log a wide range of data, but just looking at these numbers on a page may not be show you a clear enough picture of your data results.

What’s even better is it’s actually a really straightforward process. Please see the graphic below to view how to do this in just 4 simple steps.
Bespoke software is custom built for each business. The value of bespoke software over off-the-shelf software is that it can be designed specifically for key business objectives and processes.
Get the right software for your organisation.
Used properly Software can improve businesses of all sizes spanning all industries. It helps you offer a better, more consistent service to your customers, allows you to cut down on manual, repetitive processes and provides better transparency in your organisation.
The hard part is finding the Software / System solution that’s right for you. You and your organisation are unique and as such there is not a one size fits all solution for every organisation for every major process they have. The sheer choice of Software or System solution you have at your disposal can be overwhelming and you will have a delicate balancing act ensuring you satisfy all your major shareholders whilst improving the organisation and bringing in the project on budget.
This is a major challenge and as a result Software purchases are not always successful. We have put together a guide to help you decide on the Software that is right for your organisation. This guide prescribes a process to follow and gives handy tips along the way.
