Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step Online Project Wizard enables the ability to create specific Sure Step projects in a partner or customer’s SharePoint environment all from within their own SharePoint environment. In Sure Step, projects are a collection of documents, tools, and templates that is automatically generated based upon filtering criteria selected. When creating a new project, Sure Step Online will retrieve the latest Sure Step content ensuring projects are always up to date. Some key facts include:
· Projects can be created for specific Sure Step Project Types, a specific Microsoft Dynamics Product and Solution. New projects will contain copies of all Sure Step documents applicable to these criteria.
· Projects are editable. You can customize them to leverage your own best practices, to make them customer- or solution-specific.
· Projects can be copied, or “cloned“ from within SharePoint using SharePoint functionality.
· There is no limit to the number of projects you can create. A new project can be initiated for each engagement.
· Each time a project is created using the wizard, the latest content available from Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step Online will be retrieved.
· Projects can be created in SharePoint On-Premise and SharePoint Online.
This release marks the end of any further enhancements to the downloadable Sure Step client; no further client or content enhancements will be made to Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step 2012. Going forward all new updates will be made available only to Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step Online.
