I love the new activity feed functionality in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollup 5. With a little bit of configuration, you can very easily create auto-posts for relevant system events or changes to records.
Activity Feeds give users a way to follow records that are important to them, and by doing this, they see a feed of any events for any records that they follow.
This really makes activity feeds the “notification center” for CRM, and since users can comment on posts, it naturally provides collaboration between users.
In the following screencast I demonstrate how to automatically create auto-posts for system events.
