what is a business process
what is a business process?

In Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, business processes help you and everyone on your team follow best practices by guiding you through consistent stages and steps for common tasks.

For example, your organization may want everyone to follow the same steps to qualify new sales leads or to resolve service cases.

Business processes help you do that.

Note: You’ll need the Manager, Vice President, CEO-Business Manager, System Administrator, or System Customizer security role or equivalent permissions to do the tasks in this guide.

Process bar

You’ll see the process bar at the top of the screen when you work on certain types of records—for example, leads or opportunities.

The process bar shows you where a customer is in the process, and the next steps you need to take.

It’s your roadmap for getting things done.

Want a short, visual guide that introduces business processes? Check out the eBook: Business Processes.

Let’s say that after you win an opportunity, you want to move the customer to the next stage – which is placing an order. No problem.

You can extend a process to include another type of record, such as an order.

Click or tap for Options, and then select the record type.

For our example, we’ll select Order.

Note: You can use up to five different types of records in a business process.

If necessary, you can remove a record type from a business process, if your organization does things differently.

Click or tap for Options, and then click or tap Delete Last Entity.

s ave your work
save your work

When you have the stages and steps the way you want them, click or tap Save.

s et how the process is assigned to new records
set how the process is assigned to new records

If there’s more than one business process for a record type, you’ll need to set which process is automatically assigned to new records.

On the command bar, click or tap Order Process Flow.

In our example, there’s only one business process for leads, so it will be assigned to new leads automatically. No action needed.

Note: If there is more than one, and you want it assigned to new records automatically, you’ll need to move the process to the top of the list.

a ctivate the business process
activate the business process

A business process must be activated before people can use it.

On the command bar, click or tap Activate.

Now, when you create a new lead, this process will be assigned to it automatically, and the stages and steps will be ready to follow as you work with customers.

  • Now that you’ve gone through an example, you’re ready to adapt your own business process to meet the needs of your organization.
  • To help you get going quickly, there are a couple of great sources for business processes that you can start with:
  • Several ready-to-use processes for common business scenarios are available. To adapt one of these, first you’ll need to add them to the system (similar to the way you add sample data).
  • Or, you can start from a business process solution that you download from the Microsoft Dynamics Marketplace. You’ll find a library of free templates by industry.
