Forms Pro is now Customer Voice

Gathering feedback for Dynamics 365 via surveys that had an interesting history.

It started with Microsoft purchasing the IP to Mojo Surveys, which became the Voice of the Customer product provided with Dynamics 365.

Voice of the Customer was deprecated in 2019 (and removed at the end of June 2020) to be replaced by Microsoft Forms Pro.

Now Forms Pro is , in the words of Microsoft, transitioning to Dynamics 365 Customer Voice.  If you are using Voice of the Customer, you will be migrated to Customer Voice in the next few weeks; you may have seen the entity names change to Customer Voice.

To learn more about Customer Voice see the documentation at https://docs.microsoft.com/dynamics365/customer-voice/help-hub and the training available on Microsoft Learn https://docs.microsoft.com/learn/paths/create-surveys/.

Preparing for the Dynamics 365 Marketing MB-220 exam

The Dynamics 365 Marketing exam, MB-220, it one of my favourite exams and along with Field Service, my favourite courses to teach as you learn so much from the delegates who attend.

The exam covers a lot of topics:

  • Configure marketing applications (5-10%)
  • Manage segments and lists (10-15%)
  • Create and manage marketing forms and pages (10-15%)
  • Manage leads (10-15%)
  • Create and manage marketing emails (10-15%)
  • Manage customer journeys (15-20%)
  • Manage events and webinars (10-15%)
  • Configure and analyze customer responses (10-15%)

Preparing for the exam will really get you into how Marketing really works. Marketing is a complex app with a lot of features.

I have created a collection of Microsoft Learn modules to help you prepare for the exam. Please take a look at my MB-220 collection.
