CRM Customization 07-05-05

I need to customize CRM adding some fields in several forms. I'd like to
look at some documentation on how to do it: apparently there is (was?) a CRM
Customization White Paper on the MS site but the link is now broken.

Is there some detailed docs on CRM customization (like Schema details and so
on)? I had a look at the CRM SDK but it seems to be far beyond our current

Hello Andrea. If you need add Custom Fields to your form, first you need 
create these field in Deployment Manager/ Schema manager / Type of Record 
(like Contacts) / Atributtes. Here right click and select "New Schema Field"

When you finished this step, you need to add these custom fields to your 
form. For this, open CRM / Setting / System Customization / Type of Record / 
Customize Form. Here click in "Add fields" and is done.

Remember that you need to publish these changes trought Deployment Manager.
Warning: The custom fields that you add to Schema can`t be deleted.

Hope that help you.

start having a look at this on how to add fields to a form:

if you need to add custom fields then you need to add them in the Deployment 
manager - Schema manager (choose you record Type, Attributes, "Add Schema 
Fields...once adde they cannot be renamed nor removed)

Once you'r done adding your fields you need to publish them thru deployment 
manager. (After doing that is recommended that you restart IIS, you probably 
won't be able to see your new fields...)

Help with Advanced Filter criteria for customized email inbox view
Using MSOutlook2003 I customized my Outlook Inbox view with an advanced filter. The criteria were Field Condition Value -------- ----------- ------ Due By does not exist Due By on or before Today() The result was that I see all of my email messages that either don't have a reminder set (flag and due date) or have a reminder set for any time after 12:00:00 AM of the current day. This worked very well. Everything that is due on a future day was hidden from view so I didn't have to look at it. I then decided that I also wan...

Want to use CRM for an internal helpdesk and ISOLATE internal case
I have what I hope is a quick question... I have set up the CRM to allow our internal IT team to utilize it as an internal helpdesk. I want to isolate internal cases from those of our customes. I did the following: - added our HQs as an account - then added all the personnel as contacts associated with the account - set up a security role for our IT team (who are already in their own business unit in the organization) that prevents them from any priveleges to service case records EXCEPT at the business unit level (not parent/child or organization) I thought this would prevent the ...
