Assign Activity to Queue in Workflow - CRM 3.0

In the regular user interface we can assign an activity to a user or queue, 
however in a workflow we can only assign an activity to a user. Why is that? 
Is there any workaround other than an assembly?

You can assign an activity in CRM 3.0 to a queue via workflow. If the primary 
entity of the workflow is an activity, add an "Assign entity" step to the 
workflow. In the Assign Entity dialog, you will see a three radio button and 
the bottom one for Queue should be enabled. Click that and then click the 
"Assign to" button

Negative date problems, and working with a leading 0 in cell
Hello, I have a cell which needs to contain a leading 0, the cel contains a date in the mmddyyyy format.

Showing 3:54PM instead of 3:54:03PM
How do you get rid of the seconds in the time area. I have changed the formatting in the time. I use the excel file as a data source. I include the time in the mail merge. It always shows up with the seconds in the time. Very frustrating. HELP PLEASE!! TJ it may be formatted as text, so won't respond to changing the time format. if it is text, the TIMEVALUE formula will convert it to a decimal-based time value which can then be formatted by using Excel's normal Number formatting-- to get rid of the seconds.

Postcards #3
When developing postcards the program automatically prints 4 postcards on one sheet. I would like to print different postcards on each sheet. Instead of 4 of the same card I would like 4 different ones on each sheet to get the most out of my cardstock. Help! You will have to setup the postcards manually.

Reporting on Responses to Campaign Activities

No "Assign Macro"
In the Excel help files it indicates that you can execute a pre-recorded macro from a command button. It states to first record the macro, then create the button, then right click on the button to get the shortcut menu and choose Assign Macro. I have tried this in both Excel 97 and Excel 2002 and in both cases I do not have any such item as "Assign Macro". Am I missing something If not by this elusive shortcut menu item, how can I assign the pre recorded macro through code?

Serial Numbers auto assigned
S/N are being auto assigned when the SOP Setup Options DO NOT have "auto-assign serial numbers" marked. We do NOT want to use a separate fulfillment process.

Using variables in activities generated by workflow
Hi Is is possible to use a variable (taken from the calling object) in the title of a workflow activity? For example, if I write a workflow rule to create a follow up call, I have no way of knowing to whom that call is until I drill down into the activity. It would be nice to have the title of the activity something like Follow up call to &contact.fullname to show in the activity list as Follow up call to John Smith. -- Thanks Gill Opsis Gill, You actually have most of the syntax.

Importing customizations from 1.2 to 3.0???
Hi, I would expect that importing customizations from an existing MS CRM deployment (1.2) to a CRM 3.0 environment should be no issue. MS has used the seemless upgrade and metabase usage as their no.1 selling agrument. When the language codes are alike, is this possible? In other words, when upgrading to 3.0, the customizations from 1.2 (all through the standard config. tools..) should just be taken over, or not??? Thanks CRM Demo Hi, You can upgrade your system very easily if you have made no unsupported customizations. Just follow this document:
