Last week I received at home a small ring that came all the way from US. It was a small gift from Microsoft to celebrate another year as part of the MVP community 🙂
Since 2012, I have really enjoyed being part of this technical community where I have met very good professionals from all around the world.
Microsoft created this program more than 20 years ago to recognise individuals who help others to learn and understand Microsoft’s techonologies. Today we are more than 4,000 MVPs globally.
This award is split in different categories and areas depending on the technologies that we contribute to. Microsoft’s priorities and focus have evolved consideriable during the last years, which has also been reflected in the MVP award structure. My first year I got nominated as “CRM MVP“, then “Business Solutions MVP” and this year it was “Business Applications MVP“. Below you can see the current MVP award structure:

Last week I was running a new Dynamics 365 trial (v 126.96.36.1999) and I wanted to use the Voice of the Customer module.
Based on the previous versions of this solution (v.8.x.x.x), I followed the same steps that I used to: Office 365 => Dynamics 365 Admin Portal => INSTANCES => Solutions, see below screenshot:
However, when I tried to install it from this Solutions section, the installation process just failed once and again.
After a quick call with Microsoft Support, they told me the new installation process at the APPLICATIONS tab, see below screenshot:
Once you are there, just click on MANAGE and follow the next few steps choosing your corresponding instance (whose version needs to be >=8.2). Then you can track again the installation process in the Solutions section:
Hope this saves you some time 😉
