How it works & Application scenarios
Attachments of emails and notes can be replicated or extracted to a SharePoint location or a fileshare. If extracted, the attachment is replaced with a link to the file on the chosen file storage.
Sensitive documents like invoices, quotes contracts and all kind of attachments can automatically be copied to a seperate storage like a lokal fileshare or SharePoint
Comparing annual cloud storage costs of about 50GB reveals a huge difference between CRM-Online (~ 6.000 $) and SharePoint-Online (~120 $). Therefore, expensive CRM-online data storage costs can be saved by switching to alternative storage options using the AttachmentExtractor.
Independent on whether you copy or extract your documents the user will not see any difference when workinginside CRM.
In addition to attachments, email- and note–contents can be replicated for indexing purposes. If the extracted file is saved on a SharePoint location, it can be indexed and therefore searched via the MS Search Server functionality.
When using the PowerSearch addon, it is possible to perform a full text index search on the content and attachments of notes and emails directly within CRM.
Configuration
Running as a service, the Service-Setup allows to define extraction parameters, storage options and the CRM-connection in one simple user-interface.
