Workflow in Dynamics CRM is one of the most important tool for business professionals. One can simply create a workflow and automate a whole process. This saves time and makes the system more efficient. Understanding the importance of the workflows, Maplytics has made it possible to view data on a map, analyze it and run workflows on the plotted records from the map itself.

With the latest release of Maplytics, one can run a workflow on an individual Dynamics CRM record from the map itself. Let’s understand this in detail with a business use case.

Adam has recently opened a branch of his business in a new area. He had the data for the leads in the same area but since his previous branches were far away, many of the leads belonging to that area couldn’t get converted and ultimately had to be turned inactive. Now that he has opened a new branch here he wants to activate the accounts that were deactivated and wants to approach the new accounts as well as the deactivated accounts in the area for their services.

Let’s plot the account records Adam has for the area. The screenshot below shows all the accounts plotted in the area. The green color pushpins represent the inactive accounts and the blue pushpins represent the active accounts.

With the latest release, a new tooltip action has been added to the card. This is an action that helps you to run workflow on an individual record.

Adam has created a test workflow to activate the inactivate records and also to change a custom field ‘status’ as ‘Approach immediately’. Now Adam can click on the workflow action button and it will give the list of all the on-demand workflows that are available.

This way he will be able to activate all the important customer accounts and also change the status to Approach immediately so as to note that those are the customers who need to be approached.
