The List at UG Summit 2017

By Bethany Foyt

It was such a pleasure to exhibit at this year’s User Group Summit in Nashville. It marked our third year being in the expo, sharing The List with users to help them navigate the vast sea of Microsoft Dynamics add-ons.

I was extremely impressed with the Jenga knowledge throughout the Dynamics community and in addition to educating The List ladies about the rules, many users tried their hand at searching The List for specific add-ons while in the expo. So much so that our traffic saw a 60% increase over the average visits we usually get in a week!

Here are some of those users and even some Partners enjoying their time in our booth. Thank you all for stopping by and for using The List Mobile.

Don’t forget that The List gets updated each quarter and to receive a heads up on those updates, make sure to sign up for The List Alerts.
