Recurring Service Activities / Items -- CRM 3.0 -- No capability?!

What's the rationale behind *not* having the ability to schedule recurring 
activities and service items?

Have I missed something in workflows or some such?

Hi David,
Has anyone responded to your question?  We are having the same issue
and I'm hoping there is a solution available.

I understand that having generic recurrent appointments capabilities would 
be really nice. But could you please clarify what you're after: appointments 
and service activities that occur on a regular basis and show in the 
calendar as such or activities that are regenerated once completed?

Add Item to Data List that has Dynamic Source
I have a dynamic drop down list that refers to a long column of names, sorted alphabetically. The list will size itself depending on the letters entered into a reference cell (A1).

Can't open this item. The end date you entered occurs before the start date.
Hi, Everytime I open Outlook 2000 I get a calender pop-up. When I Dismiss it I get a message such as the above and the next time I open Outlook it appears again.

Cant purge 2 messages from 'recover deleted items'
Using Outlook 2003 against Exchange2003. We have a problem with 2 messages that cannot be purged from the 'recover deleted items' window. All other messages can be purged without difficulty. When we try to purge thse messages we get the message: Out look was unable to delete some items from this folder. Make sure you have the required permissions and try again. The messages cant be restored either - so I suspect they are either: a) Corrupted or b) have weird permissions on them (needless to say we have full permissions on the mailbox). How can we resolve this? Where are messages th...

Making Inactive Items Active
I need to be able to keep specific inventory items from appearing in an uploaded on-hand report that winds up on a webstore site. These are usually items for which I no longer have inventory, but I do not want to delete them, and I don't want them to show in the webstore because I can't get any more. My method for this has been to make them inactive. Recently, however, I had reason to try to re-activate a few of them. Using the Inventory Wizard and the 200 command brings up a list of all my departments; clicking a specific department brings up a list of ALL inactive items in...

Problem with recurring deposit
Hi, I set up my direct deposit paycheck as a recurring deposit. Because the every other week direct depost may vary by several hundred dollars, the amount is entered as an estimate. Money 04 never recognizes each subsequent downloaded deposit as being the recurring deposit, even though the name (ie "Hospital OPay") is the same, and the dates match exactly. Any ideas? Thanks...

QoS RSVP service (XP)
My understanding is that this service is no longer needed in XP (SP2). I have disabled this using "services.msc" under Run. However, sometimes it is turned back on (and I am not doing it manually). My question -- Does anyone have any ideas how QoS might get re-enabled -- any software, ISP server or whatever. So, why do I care? Sending an email with a large attachment is sometimes VERY, VERY slow. For example, I have a 1mb file (not all that big) I send as an attachment and it takes up to ten minutes. If I disable QoS, sending the same email is at least 10 times...
