    Thanks for the tip! Can you confirm that create and edit of Contacts are allowed? Your video mentions it is and the licencing agreement says it is however, the security role doesn’t allow it?

      Hi Paul,

      To give Create and Edit rights on Contact you will have to create a new custom security role with those privileges and assign it to a Team Member licence user in addition to the new OOB Team Member security role.

      • Paul says:

        I realise that I can do that, I wanted to confirm it is allowed as the supplied role contradicts that so was looking for some clarification.

        • Paul Owen says:

          Update on this from Microsoft: “The Sales Team Member security role is now updated to allow CRUD for Contact. The role is also now customisable”

    • Joel Lindstrom says:

      that is true. You would need to add a role with contact create permissions.
