Question on the Feature Comparison shape (in Charting Shapes)
How do I modify the Feature Comparison shape (in Charting Shapes) with more than 10 rows/columns in Visio 2007 I'm trying to build a chart that is 12 columns, by 18 rows. The shape is "mis-behaving" when I try to change it. Thank you! JLH Hello JLH, The Feature Comparison shape is really a grouped shape that contains 10 rows and 10 columns that you choose to reveal or hide depending on the custom properties you set ('Set Fields...'). So if you want to extend this you can either edit the shape and add more rows and columns to the group (bear in mind that each ...

New so-called features in Outlook 2002 -- can they be defeated?
Hello all. Our office recently got "upgraded" to Outlook 2002. It has a couple of so-called "features" which I find incredibly annoying and impossible to defeat. I'd be interested if anyone has found a way, other than the ridiculous workarounds listed on Microsoft's website. The two features which annoy me most are: Displaying both the name and the email address in email message headers; Displaying two entries in the "Select Names" dialog box for everyone who has both a fax and an email address, that is, virtually everybody. If anyone can te...

How do I setup a Crystal Reports server to host CRM 1.2 Reports?
Hi there, I recently upgraded from CRM 1.2 to CRM 3.0. As a result I can no longer run all of our custom crystal reports from the 1.2 installation. Can anyone tell me or point me to a document on the web which instructs on setting up a Crystal Reports server to host the CRM 1.2 reports? My company has a registered copy of Crystal 9 Developer edition & reports server. I don't know much about Crystal and at the moment we don't have time to convert these reports to SQL-RS. Thank you. You could also try which is an email-based service to convert cry...

80040e14 error when installing Microsoft CRM
Hello Ryan, Since I am trying to install MS CRM on a SBS2K enviroment, I do not have an installation enviroment that has multiple domain controllers. So I have tried the solution of the second primary cause but it did not work. I have uninstalled SQL, deleted the files that can not be uninstalled, reinstalled the SQL and SP2 then installed CRM.

CRM 4.0 Outlook client hangs on folders
Hi, We are experiencing problems with the Outlook "online" client. Outlook 2007 starts up just fine and the CRM features seem to work well but when navigating subfolders of e.g. the Inbox the list of messages never loads. The progress thingy that appears when loading is all we get. I ran the client diagnostics and it mentioned that I had many messages in the folders. Yup, that's why a need a tool like Outlook to help me organize them. I have around 3000 messages in my inbox but the same thing happens when selecting another folder. Any and all help would be appreciated. ...

How can I promote a email to a new CRM case?
Often, we get customers mailing our account and they are often new incidents. The promote to CRM activity is great, but it does not look like I can create a new case with it, just associate it with an existing case. Did microsoft forget this very obvious workflow, or is it me that's missing something obvious? Thanks! Peter, This is a common question. While it is an "obvious" need, there are plenty of implementation details related to doing it that make it difficult. Thus, you need to create the case first. Sorry, Matt "Peter Robertson" <s...

Hi, There seems to be hundreds of CRM software packages out there. I am trying to understand what makes a good CRM package. My motivation for asking is that I am vaguely thinking of writing my own CRM package, but I need to find out more about user requirements. Please can you answer some quick questions for me!? Thanks! 1/ What "non-Microsoft" CRM software have you used - what did you think of it? - and do you have a URL for it? 2/ How do you think Microsoft CRM compares to competitor products? What does it have that the others dont, and/or lack which the others have? 3/ W...

CRM 3.0 Installation Problem
I think that I may have screwed up my CRM 3.0 Installation. I was having alot of problems with CRM after I first installed it, after I got some errors during the installation. So I uninstalled it and I am now trying to reinstall it. I am running SBS 2003, which I just installed. When I installed SBS, the server was created on it's own domain that was seperate from our main domain. I have since joined my domain, and made the SBS server into a domain controller. Now when I try to reinstall CRM 3.0, I get the following errors during the verification tasks: Microsoft CRM Server User I...

CRM 4.0 Maximum Attachment file size
Hello, How do I increase the maximum attachment file size to more than 8MB? In the system parameters, when i try a higher limit i get an error message saying i must enter a number between 0 and 8192. In CRM 3.0 we currently have a limit of 30MB. We are in the process of upgrading to CRM 4.0 and I am unable to put the same limit. Is it possible to put a higher value than 8192? Thank you, JF Hi Giro, I ran into the same problem but found the fix. You need to change the following 2 lines in your web.config file to increase the size beyond 8MB 1. <httpRuntime executionTimeout=&quo...

Setting up an email address for CRM correctly so emails go out
Hi, Our business has just deployed CRM and we are at the stage now where we have all of our contacts and accounts on the database and would like to start using it to send out marketing emails, etc. I've poked around all the various email options but am stumbling at the first hurdle; the email addresses that have been associated with the CRM users are not actual functioning email addresses. As I didn't set up the system when it was first installed I don't know how the administrator set it up, but it seems that he has put these "dummy" addresses in for each CRM user which...
