Display Activities in CRM Calendar
When scheduling an Activity (phone call, tasks etc) in CRM Service/Workplace,
a record is created in In Progress folder. According to a tutorial this will
automatically create an appointment record in the CRM Calendar, which is not
The only way I could get something scheduled in the calendar was to create

Your Outlook program should have an easier way to modify message rules. I sugest the method used by Outlook express.
Here's why. In OE one can open a rule and add a sender to a rule simply by clicking on a button that opens up the address book. NOT so in Outlook, unless I've missed it. In Outlook I had to go to a message, move the Outlook window far to the right of the screen, open the rules wizard and move it to the left, then manualy enter the senders properties into the rule. Why? I found out I couldn't use the Windows clipboard while in the rules modification...Sorting of Activities by Date.
Is there any way to sort an Opportunities activites by
date ? Currently, it's sorted alphabetically based on the
subject of mails or activites name and this is not great.
It would be better if the activities were sorted by date
with the most recent at the top of the list and so on.
Yes you can but it will be an unsupported customization.

Now click on the Associated View and add the columns you need.

Edrei Lozano | CRM Business Unit Manage...User re-created in active directory
We have a strange situation in our CRM implementation. One of the CRM user
was deleted from the Active directory and re-created with the same username.
Nothing was changed in CRM in this regard. However, since the user user got
recreated, I think the crm entry refers to the old user sid and hence the
user is not able to do anything in CRM.
How do we deal with this situation? Is there a way to refresh the sid of the
user in the CRM?
Maybe you can track the users GUID in active directory. I'm currently not at
liberty too take a look myself.
Another option is to recreate the use...Outlook 2000: Find a Contact button on toolbar
