Cases with no Customer
The requirements for a CRM 4.0 implementation is to be able to create
Cases without linking it to a Customer (Contact or Account). From the
customisation section in CRM the mandatory Customer field cannot be
set to optional or removed from the form. It was proposed that a dummy
account is created called 'non-linked', which is used in this
situation, but this will have too much of an impact on existing
workflow and reports.
So my questions is:
Is there anyway to design the system so a Case can be created which is
not linked to a Customer. And we are happy to consider unsupported
so...Could Workflow be used to create ID numbers for a custom entity?
I have created a custom entity called "Feature Requests" with a custom
attribute called "ID". I am not a developer and would like to know if I could
use Workflow to create unique ID numbers for the records being submitted by
users. If yes, can you point me towards an example. This would be a stop gap
measure until I can get a developer to do a plug in or an Onload Jscript (or
I buy a book and learn Jscript....).
...Default Customer Checkbook ID does not default in Cash Receipts En
This is a weird situation and I can't seem to replicate it on my local
install. My client and I are both on GP 8.0 g 44. I am accessing their GP
via Terminal Server. On my local install, the checkbook on my Customer Card
(Customer Account Maintenance) defaults in to the cash receipts entry window
as soon as I select the Customer ID. However on my client nothing defaults
in -- I made sure that there is a checkbook identified on the Customer
Accounts Maintenance window. Has anyone encountered this? Thanks in

I am doing resource allocations for projects in my company. Each project is
considered a task and there are resources assigned to each project.
Each resource is assigned to different departments.
I would like to be able to produce reports sorted by department with the

Have you looked at the Resource Usage view?

Whenever I try to update a report linked to an OLAP cube in Excel I get the
following error: "Client Safety Options do not allow pass through statements

mean? How do you fix it? I've searched all of Microsoft's help features and

I think they removed that capability because it caused so

...Reports Not Accessible
We are currently having trouble accessing CRM reports. The report icon
is missing from all related entities. What is wild is we can access
the report server with no problems, and when I log into the CRM

IE explorer I receive the reports menu and can access all the reports
just fine. Any thoughts or suggestions?

One of the options in the Analytical Accounting Options window (Tools >>

It looks like you want to convert those text fields to drop down lists. One
option is to delete these two fields and than add new fields as picklists
with desired predeifined options.

If you go into store operations Manager - databases - receipt formats, then
select the receipt format you are using, then select the relevant template
Once this is opened near the top of the page you will see the flag for
receipt count - change this accordingley.
Hope this is what you meant
