View usage activity metrics with a new preview feature, Organization Insights

With the latest release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, we have delivered a new preview feature, Organization Insights, which provides the system administrator(s) of a CRM Online organization with the ability to view usage activity metrics to gain a better understanding of how well the CRM instance is being used.

The Organization Insights dashboard shows information such as top users and how many operations, page requests, etc., are occurring over various lookback periods.
