Synchronous Rollup Fields and Routing Rules, Anyone?

I just love the new Rollup fields in CRM 2015, but when I demo the software, I do not like the delay between changing the underlying values in the child records and the automatic asynchronous update scheduled to run some time later. Ditto for routing Cases.

Arrives a tweet from Mark Smith (@nzCRMGuy) in my Inbox this morning, with a link to demian_rasko’s msdyncrmworkflowtools project on codeplex:

This solution adds to custom workflow activities, one to force Rollup field calculation to run for the a parent entity whenever a specific field on the child record changes, and another to force the Routing Rule for a Case to execute immediately.

This becomes a standard part of my demo toolbox, I suspect πŸ™‚
