Microsoft Adds Salesforce Business Data, Others to Windows Search Bar
Elevate your enterprise data technology and strategy to Transform 2021.
Microsoft announced the arrival of new data sources in the Windows Search Bar, providing business users with personalized results from Microsoft and third-party business tools.
The Windows search bar, located at the bottom left of the Windows screen, is typically used to search for apps, files, or folders located locally on a machine or to find answers to general questions on the web. But when users are signed in with an Azure Active Directory, Microsoft’s cloud-based Identity and Access Management (IAM) account, they can use the search bar to search for additional sources, such as conversations. in Microsoft Teams or data on SharePoint sites.
Going forward, company admins will be able to set up new connections to Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, and Microsoft SQL Server, among others, allowing employees to find more business content right from their desks.
Microsoft made the announcement at its annual developer-centric Build conference, which took place virtually today for the second year in a row.
