Simple workflow for CRM3 wait timer
I want to create a workflow that tests if customer is reached and if not sends an email at 7 days & 14 days after the account is created. I am not sure if the workflow is correct.

CRM4 Installation error due to missing file on Microsoft website
Hi, I hope Microsoft monitor these newsgroups! I'm trying to install CRM4 on a clients Windows 2008 x64, SQL2008 x64 server. As per advice I am clicking 'Update Installation Files' however this produces an error. The wizard says you can download the updates manually, so it's an English install code 0x409, so I follow this link (x64 English Server update): http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=104228&clcid=0x409 And it turns out that link fails (probably explains why the main install update fails!)... So now I cant install CRM4 because I need that update on that se...

Also, is there a process or a step in Dynamics to accrue this vacation? or does it automatically do this when I am running payroll? Also, with the accrual schedule setup, does it use the start date from employee maintenance? Doug -- Doug ...

Can't get a date out of the workflow
Hi there, I have a complete workflow giving all kind of insterracting tasks to everybody and where i need to transfer some dates from an activity to another. I'm sure it was working fine at the start in the first test that i made because i remember the date was a complete line with regional stuff... but when i made the rules for good, i saw that none of the date is managed anymore. so I made a simple manual task, where I simply add any date, like the scheduled date for example, but nothing comes out of the workflow. any other field works just fine. i'm searching for 3 days, but wi...

I would like to open a new window in a workflow
Hi! I´ve created a workflow where a serviceactivity creates after I have closed a phoneactivity. The thing is that I would like the serviceactivity to open directly in a new window, because now I have to find the serviceactivity in the servicecalendar and open it from there. Does anyone know how I can fix this? You will not be able to open a window from a workflow, as workflow is asynchronous which means they run in the background when the server has time. This might be minutes after the user made their change which starts the workflow. If you want to open something after closing...

How to schedule Multiple-day service activities in CRM?
Service activities can have several durations. The duration can be in hours (with a max. of 8 hours) or in days. Only the problem when setting up a service with a duration of two days, CRM assumes you mean 48 hours in stead of the logical 16 hours (two working days). When scheduling a mechanic for 2 days in CRM will lead to a strange display in his calendar. So therefore it seems to be impossible to schedule a multiple-day service activity in one time, only by entering an activity for each day separately. Or is there somebody who knows a good solution/work around for this inconvenience?...

CRM4 Email Tracking problem
Hi, Does anyone know if we can turn off the Outlook email tracking smart matching feature entirely and only use the Tracking token for tracking replied in-coming emails? I have read these two blogs already and they don't help. http://blogs.msdn.com/crm/archive/2008/11/11/microsoft-dynamics-crm-email-correlation-and-smart-matching.aspx http://blogs.msdn.com/crm/archive/2008/01/29/what-s-new-in-microsoft-dynamics-crm-4-0-e-mail-integration.aspx I believe smart matching is always used for inbound tracking.

CRM 4.0 Workflow links
Hello, I am needing to have Workflow send an email with a link to given item. For example if a person is assigned a task, I want the email to contain the link to the task. I understand how to have it create the email but I do not know how to have it send the link. I appreciate the help! Thanks, Chris Hi Chris, This was an issue in 3.0 and i guess it still remains in 4.0 as well. They have a new option to send shortcut and copy shortcut... this copies the entire url to current object. But it probably cannot be used in a workflow automation. The solution would be to add a custom a...

Activity Count in Wait Condition in Workflow for 4.0
Hello, I have a requirement to assign a case to a manager whenever all the dependent activities are closed. I tried creating a workflow with a wait condition on "Workflow-Activity Count Including Workflow == 0" with the following assumptions: - the value "Activity Count Including Workflow" will contain the number of *open* activities, and it will decrease whenever activities are closed. - The wait condition will exit when this number reaches zero. I have had no success with any of these assumptions. The workflow gets stuck in the wait condition, and it never exits, ...

Create task with a specific due date from workflow?
I have a user defined field on an opportunity, lets call that "Estimated Required Date". When the date field is entered that triggers a workflow rule that creates a task for someone to build the estimate for the job. How do I create that task such that the task due date is the "Estimated Required Date"? The workflow forms seem to only allow number of hours, days, etc. from the time of Task creation and even that seems to require a hard-coded value. Thanks in advance for any help. Hi, Using the tools that come with CRM, this is not possible. The forms to create Workf...

converting room scheduling data to grid...
Just wondering if there is a relative easy way to take data that looks like this: smith Jon english 2020 MWF 0700-0750 and convert it automatically into a grid that shows who is teaching at what time in a particular class, with the occupied hours colored in, with time on the vertical access and days of the week on the horizontal? This is a lame question, I know. [slinks away] Laurel, the only way this will work is if the fields with the data from which you're importing is fixed width, or you have a delimiter between the fields in each record (like Smith,John,English2020,MW...

Multiple users are able to open a project schedule in read/write
A client using Project Server 2003 is having a unique issue. One user has opened a project schedule however it does not appear as checked out so a second user has been able to open it in read/write mode as well. When the first user closed it, a message saying the schedule is not checked out by anyone was received. Has anyone ever come across this before? It seems that this schedule is having other strange issues and appears corrupted in some way. However, still interested in hearing from anyone who may have come across something like this before. ...

Queue retry schedule
Anyone know if Exchange 2003 Sp2 queues have a set retry setting and if this can be tweaked? For example, our outside gateway will try to connect to say 'hotmail.com' to send it mail. If it is unavailable, it will try again in 5 minutes, then 15 minutes later, 30 minutes, and finally an hour. I can change these intervals and even force a connection if I don't want to wait. If an exchange server can't connect to our gateway or to other internal mail servers, the messages are stuck in the queues. Are there similar settings for exchange?

Workflow Rule Failing in 3.0
Hey, So I'm not sure why this "Create" WF rule keeps failing, but I have a picklist in a task that is set by the WF rule, based on entity conditions. If the conditions are met the Picklist is set to "Yes" (the picklist has 3 values, "Yes", "No", and "N/A"). I have some OnLoad code that checks this value, and if the Value is "Yes", a function that captures the Click "Save As Complete" event throws an Alert and prevents the action. Thing is, the Workflow rule doesn't set the field and if I go to the Workflow M...

Hi Could someone please assist me with the creation of a workflow rule? We need to create a rule that when a task is assigned to someone and not completed by the due date then the sales manager should automatically receive an email informing of the non completion.

Thanks Hi Mark, I did this by: 1. Make sure all users have the Manager set up in their User Record 2. Create a workflow for Task Created If Task <...

How to trigger an onchange event with a manual workflow rule
Hello, Here's my problem: I need to make a picklist field's actual value (not its index) available in word mail merge. My initial solution: I have created another field and labeled it "Merge Field." My plan is to use a hard coded array with the values related to the picklist index and populate this merge field with those values through an onchange event running on the picklist field. Here is my code: var testb = null; var pick = new Array("", "Advanced Certified Nurse Practitioner", "Anesthesiology", "Cardiovascular Disease"...

NDR when scheduling an appointment, apparent the deleted account of a past delegate?
We are having a problem wherein a delegate for one of our users got deleted and now we are getting NDR's when the existing user gets a meeting request saying that the message couldn't be delivered to the deleted account (who used to be a delegate of theirs). Is there any way to search for this on the exchange side, rather than check each Outlook setup? I saw a similar post that was recommended to use MDBView, but it doesn't appear to be included in exchange 2003. Any suggestions on how to track down the residual references to this account so we can remove them?? Thanks! Hi, This...
