Your Trial Period has Expired!

" Your Trial Period has Expired!"

This is a depressing message especially when you still haven't achieved what you wanted to do in the trial setup.

Most of the software today provide a fixed trial period. You my try it during the duration and then purchase it to continue beyond the trial period.

But what happens when you need to extend the trial? Well some do provide a small extension but you need to provide your credit card details which means there is a risk of billing if you forget to turn off the trial before the billing cycle starts.

You may be surprised to know that In most of the cases, you can just request and the people managing it may simply accept your request - just for free without needing any payment details.

I have had multiple experience with Microsoft product Dynamics365. They first provide a 30 days trial and then an extension if you provide your credit card info. But you may just try contacting the customer care and request them to extend without any credit card/payment info. Most of the times they just do it.

I had another experience with ScreenMeet which is an extension for D365 CSW. The agent was happy to extend my trial without needing much explanation itself.

So, before giving up, please try to contact the company and check if they could extend the trial period just for you.

Smart Bulb to track deployment!

Ok - so you have bought the smart bulb and have got bored of changing its colors from the app. You may have also used Google Home/Assistant or Alexa and said 'Ok Google! Make the Living Room Pink' - boom the color changes to Pink! Interesting to play with for another couple of days but what next? You may schedule it with the day cycle or with weather to change color and intensity of brightness but I thought why not use it to track the CRM deployment status and outcome? I already have mail notifications enabled in the custom deployment script which sends alerts when the deployment starts, succeeds or fails. So my target was to implement the highlighted: What I had: The smart bulb - bought at Amazon on discounted price The native app of bulb - Apart from the ability of changing colors, etc. and scheduling it didn't provide much so I use io.e (get the app) service to integrate it with ifttt ifttt account - you must register and explore this if you haven't.

Late evening
