Suppose, being a sales manager, you need to track sales activity of the last month so according to that you can take the further steps. Last month your team got many leads and want to check the sales records of the last month. So you can track and check the last month’s sales records by designing your own custom dashboards.
So now, to configure the custom dashboard as per last month sales record, you need to insert the following details to customize the dashboard:
- Name: Insert the relevant name for the Custom dashboard
- Entity Name: Insert the logical Name of the entity for which you are creating the dashboard
- Query: Insert FetchXML Query of the defined entity.
After configuring all the above three fields Save the record.
Step 4: Navigate to the MappyField 365 Dashboards
Now, navigate to the “MappyField 365” from the navigation map and click on the ‘Dashboards’.
You will navigate to the “MappyField 365 Dashboards”. From the MappyField 365 Dashboards drop-down, find & click on the MappyFiled 365 Custom Dashboard.

You can check all major CRM activities on MappyFiled 365 map by creating the custom dashboard. It will help you to get the current status of any activities, work progress and get the analytics from that custom dashboard so you can take further steps according to that.
