    Q: Will there be an On-premises version of CRM released in October?

    A: Nothing firm about a release commit for on-premise (yet).

     

    Q: Marketing & Customer service: How is licensing working for the two as of version 9.0? Can you have both? Is the license level higher (i.e., more expensive) to have access to both? 

    A: In v9, if you have the Customer Engagement license, Marketing and Customer Service are included.  Both Marketing and Customer Service are only offered in the Unified Interface (new interface). Here's a reference on licensing - https://dynamics.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/

     

    Q: Marketing & Customer service used to have separate databases. Is everything (all data) now in one place/the same database, hosted in one UI?

    A: In v9, both Customer Service and Marketing are on the same database (Common Data Service, aka CDS) and are hosted in the Unified Interface.

     

    Q: LinkedIn – linking Leads in CRM where they have the same LinkedIn Profile but have multiple lead records in CRM with different emails – are these duplicates detected?

    A: Bryan Engle suggests using a solution like AutoMerge (https://automerge.net/) to detect duplicates after synchronizing leads with Dynamics/LinkedIn.

     

    Q: Is the Relationship Assistant available on Mobile?

    A: Relationship Assistant is available on Mobile https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/customer-engagement/mobile-app/dynamics-365-phones-tablets-users-guide
