Let FIDO Dig Out Your Data!
Read Our New Case Study!
What is FIDO (The Data Retriever)®?
FIDO is a web-based Silverlight™ application that looks a lot like Windows Explorer or Microsoft Outlook. FIDO includes over 115 predefined views into your data. Just select one to view your data. Filter, sort and group as you see fit. Then, if you like, you can export the results to MS Excel for further processing. If you’ve customized the view as described below, you can easily save it for use in the future. You can also create your own completely different views!
Finally, a simple yet powerful tool for SL users
You’ve been collecting lots of data with your Dynamics SL system. It should be easy for you to get that data out in the form of information. Now it is - Just let FIDO dig it out for you. In less than 15 minutes, you’ll have an understanding of the basics and be able to turn FIDO loose to retrieve your data!
FIDO's Data Dictionary
Have you ever had the experience of trying to find the field you need, but don’t recognize any of the field names? FIDO’s data dictionary is a big help by using friendly field (aka column) names. And if you don’t quite like FIDO’s name for the field, you can change it. From that moment on, any time you want to use that field in a view, it’ll be known by your name. And that goes for those user fields that you set up to track your custom data!
Select your chart type, x and y axis columns and in few seconds you have a beautiful chart created for any FIDO sibling view... it's that easy! Charts dramatically increase the understanding of FIDO's underlying data. Want to combine charts together into dashboards? No problem. These dashboards are readily available in your browser as well as on your iOS and Android mobile devices (phones, tablets, etc.). This feature is a HUGELY cost effective way to visualize your SL data - anywhere!
