Account Views Order

Is there any way of manually setting the order in which views are displayed
in the drop down box for Accounts?

We've created a number of similar views all starting with the word "account"
followed by a username (eg: Account - Joe Bloggs etc..) and ideally want
them displayed in the list together alphabetically but at the moment they're
all mixed in with other views in no logical order.

It's not a major problem but would make the system more user friendly if we
could have all these views together in the list, is this possible?

Thanks, Steve

Sorry Steve,
That view list can't be sorted by any logical order in CRM 1.2.  What
you see is what you get.  (Shameless plug alert: VAST Insights exposes
the CRM views, so you can see the same things you can in CRM, but we do
sort the view list alphabetically.  You can also of course query your
historical CRM data.)

I do believe this will be fixed in CRM 3.0...  HTH,

Can't create an account to account relationship in the account ent
Is this because the default (Parent Account) relationship already exists? Can you not have duplicate relationships? Thanks in advance for the clarification. > Is this because the default (Parent Account) relationship already exists? Yes. > Can you not have duplicate relationships? Yes, you cannot have duplicate relationships in this manner. To do this you need to use the Relationships/Relationship Roles functionality, where you can pretty much do any kind of relationship between clients (ie accounts and contacts.) HTH, R.

Traceability copying sales orders
Hi, it is common to copy sales orders for end users. They select a sales document, then they click on "Copy" and the system copy the whole document without problem. But.... is there a way to know the sales document source of the copy? I need to know a fast way to trace a sales document to the previous sales document. I am not talking about transfer from quote to order or order to invoice. I refer to copy from an order to another order. -- Ariel Andrés Quesada MSc Systems Engineering, MCBMSP CRM 4.0 MCTS: TFS, MOSS 2007,Forefront, Projec...

exchange accounts will not delete from site
I have recently recovered one of my exchange 5.5 servers that crashed. Mailboxes have been restored and replication appears to complete only down to the restored server but not up to the main site mail server that holds the global address list. Due to lack of information in backups, it was necessary for me to manually recreate all mailboxes and then restore mailboxes. However, the new accounts have created with a "2" appended to each mailbox name. Example is automatically created as How do I purge the old accounts from the global list so that I can crea...

Muliple Exchange OMA User Accounts from One SmartPhone
I wish to be able to access multiple user accounts (all on the same Exchange 2003 server) from a single smartphone running Windows Mobile 5.0. After setting up OMA on Exchange and the smartphone and visiting https://FQDN/oma all works well after entering the username and password for one account, but then the smartphone remembers the login (presumably via a cookie) for future visits to the same URL. There seems to be no easy way to delete the cookie on the smartphone, so all subsequent accesses to OMA go straight through to the same user account. One way I have considered tackling this is to ...

Extreme Delays Deleting Change Orders from Project Accounting
We use Project Accounting for Dynamix GP and we are attempting to start using the Change Order features to track changes made to project budget and fees. Unfortunately, during testing, we are experiencing a five to ten minute delay whenever we try to delete an incorrectly entered change order. This occurs even if we simply start to create a change order, never use it for anything and immediately attempt to delete it. Has anyone experienced this, or can anyone propose any clues on what I should look at to find what is causing this large pause? -- Jim Rowley Business Analyst II ...

Re Label Accounts Field
Anybody know how to change the Accounts field label to something else e.g. Organization, or Business? You can rename the 'account' entity to be 'Business'. Organization is a reserved word in CRM (there is already an orgainzation object) so it's off-limits.

want to transfer out funds from a fund within an account to a fund within the same account.
I want to do this to preserve my cost basis. I have a 401k that lets say has a fund that I bought for 100 bucks and it gained 10 dollars. when I issue a buy/sell to transfer it to another fund (within the same 401k account) the new cost basis is 110 dollars instead of the 100 that I actually spent. I know that using transfer in/out will preserve this cost basis, but it doesnt seem to work within an account per other threads of this nature. How can I do something similar within the same account? I am using 2005 premium. Thanks Vic. I don't think your use of Cost Basis reflects tax la...

CRM 3.0
Hi, When you are adding existing products onto an order, you select a product from the look-up and it then, on the same form asks you to choose a unit. Our CRM setup has only 1 unit, and will only ever have 1 unit called Each. Is there any way to change the system to automatically default to Each? Can this be done in a Call-out or some way through and SDK or something!! It would save a lot of time when picking products, which in itself is a long process. Thanks so much.

Problem configuring Outlook 2007 w/ job email account
I recently installed Outlook 2007 to my laptop (which uses Vista). Upon trying to "setup" Outlook a small box appeared in the upper left corner of the screen which stated "configuring outlook accounts." A box appeared asking for "Microsoft Exchange Server" and "mailbox." I was not sure as to what to enter so I entered "" (which is everything listed after the "@" in my job email address) for the server and my name for mailbox. I then received the following error message: "The connection to Microsoft Exchange is ...

Loan account
Hi, Something else that's giving me trouble. I've set up a loan account - all seems to be fine. It's a three year loan, and the first two payments had already been made when I set the thing up in Money. Money coped with this fine, and within the register of the loan account it now accurately shows the first two payments and the principal-element of each payment, together with the diminishing value of the outstanding loan. However, it doesn't seem to be linked in any way to the account from which the payments are actually being made. Conceptually it seems to me that the loan ...

Turn off Autogenerate account description
I found out there isn't a way to turn off the autogenerate account description through Customer Source. I would like to add this as a suggestion for future release where I can click a button and it'll not autogenerate the account description for me. It's a nice feature, but it doesn't work for my intent. I understand that the autogenerate account description comes from the account segment list, however, my account segment list doesn't do the account description any justice b/c I have 5 segments, and the names can be long, so GP will truncate it, but not where I wan...

New Account for CD
I bought a CD and don't know how to set it up in Money (using Money Plus H&B). When I tried setting it up as a bank savings account there was a note that said I should set it up as an investment account.

A Savings Account can be used. If you only ever intend to have one CD at a time, that's probably easier. But if you want to manage multiple individual CDs over time, then the Investmen...

Project Accounting: User Class Settings
The screen design for granting user classs permissions could be better implemented. Since most of the choices are similar for each category, why not employ a grid type for each user class. This will eliminate the need to navigate 9 separate buttons for each user class. Instead, all the selection criteria could exist on one screen, making the setup visually easier to navigate. It's possible that this technique could be employed in other similar areas of Dynamics GP as well. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggestions with t...
