The “Voice of the Customer” is a new feature which is available in Microsoft Dynamics 365, the main purpose is to create and capture feedback about your product or service. Using “Voice of the Customer”, it is possible to easily set up, distribute and capture responses from surveys.

In this blog we will look at how to set up and install the Voice of the Customer application within Microsoft Dynamics 365.
