Guide: Using Microsoft Dynamic CRM with Databox (Third-Party Integration)
Currently, there is not a direct Databox + Microsoft Dynamic CRM integration available, but there are alternative ways to sync your Microsoft Dynamic CRM data with Databox.
These alternatives utilize third-party integrations such as Zapier, or the Databox API.
Pro Tip: If you don't have the time or resources to set this up yourself, check out our services where we can build the custom integration for you. For additional information, feel free to connect with our team via chat or email us at email@example.com.

How to use Zapier to sync Microsoft Dynamic CRM data
Zapier is a trigger-based app, meaning you can have certain events (such as a new card being added) trigger certain actions (updating the relevant data and syncing with Databox) using Zaps. Because triggers initiate data syncs, historical data will not be available for metrics that are synced using Zapier.
Learn more about the Zapier + Databox third-party integration here.
Whenever possible, it’s recommended that you use a Zap Template. This will save you time and will streamline the process of syncing Microsoft Dynamic CRM data with Databox using Zapier.
You can also create Zaps from scratch if a Zap Template isn’t available.

Use the Databox API to sync Microsoft Dynamic CRM data
If you’re comfortable using scripting languages or you have developer resources available, you can build your own custom integration and push Microsoft Dynamic CRM data via the Databox API.
