During the course of giving and preparing countless CRM demos as Satya’s demo whipping boy, I’ve made frequent use of our Dynamics Snap-ins because they show off the *cough* harmony *cough* between Office and Dynamics.  Customers always get that faraway “wow, that’s cool!” look in their eyes.  In spite of my reservations about how simple this first wave of snaps seems to me, I have found that customers just love them.  That got me fired up about what I could expect our partner community to contribute.  This is the tip of the iceberg!  I want more snaps!

I’ve always been a big fan of top ten lists, so here is my top ten most wanted snaps for the future:

  1. Meeting Notes Recorder (InfoPath or OneNote?)
  2. Excel Bi-di synch
  3. Project sync
  4. Live Communication Server
  5. adCenter integration
  6. Word proposal generator
  7. Excel forecasting
  8. mashup (DONE!)
  9. LinkedIn integration
  10. Factiva integration (DONE!)
  11. google finance competitive news analysis
  12. google trends campaign search
  13. Sales Pipeline gadget for Vista Sidebar or Windows Live

Note: If you want to build one of these (or better yet, if you already have built one) let me know!  I’d be happy to give you my 2c on how it might get implemented.  But I’ll give you fair warning that I may get bored and will be forced to code some of these up myself. J
