Add ready-to-use business processes

Microsoft Dynamics CRM includes several ready-to-use business processes for common sales, service, and marketing scenarios – to help you ensure that staff follow consistent steps every time they work with customers.

Before you can use these processes, you need to add them to the system.


Note

Ready-to-use business processes are activated automatically when you add them. If a ready-to-use business process includes workflows or portable business logic rules, you'll need to activate those separately. More information: Customization Guide


The following table shows a list of ready-to-use business processes and what they help you do.
