Portal Features

If you already have customer information in Dynamics CRM or Dynamics 365 - you can quickly and securely provide your customers with access through Portal Solutions. 

Instead of having customers call or email for updates on a specific matter, enable your customers to create an online account and update Support Ticket or Case Information themselves, update billing or contact information immediately, or see the real-time status of a warranty claim.

Absolutely anything you've created in Dynamics CRM (on-premise or in the cloud) including any custom entities can now be securely offered to your customers for real-time communications and updates.

The following extensive list offers the features of the portal connector and its capabilities including Dynamics, the Power Platform, and Sitefinity CMS.
