Adding the Veelo Iframe to Dynamics Entities

The instructions in this section show you how to add the Veelo iframe to the Opportunities entity in Dynamics, but the steps are the same for all of them.

  13. Select the Home tab in the top menu, then click Save and Publish to make the iframe visible.

     

Editing Your Users' Security Role Settings

Once you've added the Veelo iframe in your Dynamics entities, your users will need to have Read access to the Veelo Config custom entity in Dynamics in order to see it displayed correctly on their layout. To edit the security role settings for your users, follow these steps.

  1. Click on the Settings menu, then click on Security.

     
  2. Click on Security Roles to go to the Security Roles area.

     
  3. If your organization uses multiple business units, ensure you're in the correct business unit, then select the Security Role you'd like to edit. Typically, this would include sales roles, including Sales managers who need access to Veelo. Once you've selected the role, click on the Custom Entities tab, and apply the Read permission to the Veelo Config custom entity.

    Click Save and Close when done, and repeat this process for all the different roles that need access to Veelo in Dynamics.

     

That's all! You're ready to go.
