Country Entity with Data Source Integration

  • 1.  Country Entity with Data Source Integration

    ​Greetings,

    We are using a Country lookup to a custom entity on our contact and account records. We have managed the list in the past by importing a spreadsheet via the ISO-3166-1 standards.

    I am curious if anyone else is using something similar and found a more automated way to populate countries from a data source?

    We are throwing around the idea of building an integration and using a paid service. It would be great to hear if anyone utilizes existing managed solutions or apps that are more plug n' play.

    One of the reasons we are looking to have this in Dynamics is due to other integrations we have that need a standardized source for Country/Alpha 2-3 codes. Pulling it from the Dynamics API will be pretty simple, we just need a solution that populates dynamics on the regular in an automated fashion.

    Thanks,
    SG
