Clicking on the Phone field to open Skype call

It is easy to use Skype to call a contact or company.
You need to have a field that is with the phone number format so that will be clickable. When you press the number it will open a window asking if you want to call from Skype or Skype for Business (you will need to check what is configured in the System Settings->General tab).
After that, it will show the Skype window to make the call and simultaneously it will open a phone call activity in the CRM so you can start writing any information about the call.

Performance Analysis online

When we have a problem in Dynamics CRM instance of a client, Microsoft has available an online page that we use to do some screening of what may be happening to the instance.
For that we must go to the following URL: https://<OrganizationName>/tools/diagnostics/diag.aspx (change the with the client organization) and from there we will have a page with some information that will be analyzed after we press the Run button.

For example https://myorg.crm4.dynamics.com/tools/diagnostics/diag.aspx
