CRM 3.0 Implementation
I am interested in the experiences of others with implementing Microsoft CRM
3.0. I am a one man development team who has been tasked with implementing
CRM 3.0 with 30 users initially.
Our organization has been running on Lotus Notes for quite a while. We moved
to echange for e-mail over a year ago but still use Lotus for custom
databases. The first step will be pulling the data from Lotus Notes to CRM.
I have looked into the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Certification. There is a company
that offers a 10 day CRM 3.0 boot camp. Is this a good idea, and at what
point should I take it? We would lik...Problems with creating a newsletter
I chose the form "Newsletter - email".
I have created a 3 page newsletter. Now, I have NO IDEA how to send it out
as an email. I do not want to send it as an attachment. I cannot figure out
which "save as" format or what I need to do so that i can email this
newsletter. Is there a website that goes through how to do this?
Am I correct when I say that it has to be html in order for me to send it as
email? That is not one of the options.
Any help you give me would be greatly appreciated.
...Changing SQL Server for CRM 1.2
As my SQL server is currently on its last breath I am in the process of
moving our CRM 1.2 databases to a new dedicated serever. I have detatched the
databases from the old server, copied the files to the server and attached
I have then gone into CRM deployment manager and changed to the SQL server
to the new server.
That all appears to work fine, no error messages. But when users try to

the value of the char(1) column resulted from a CheckBox ('Y...How do you turn off/on the "1" or "2" or "+" or "-" view hide/unh.

- if you like you can hide the other columns. Just select theses

There are a couple ways so do this. One is to test it, which makes for

Our default recipient policy is companyname.local.
We have 10 other recipient policy’s for each site within our company – they

I went into Receiving Transaction Entry to record the receipt of an item.

because I had not filled in all the BOLD, RED areas. At that point I wanted
to close down that screen, but the system would not let me do that either. I
could minimize the screen and then I could also see that there wasn't any

Even if you went back to Publisher 2000, unless you have the identical font

I have racked my pea-sized brain for endless days for a way to associate
multiple existing contacts (or accounts) to an account.
My client has accounts that have many contacts (or accounts) involved at
different stages of acquiring a new account.
The logical method would be to add a custom attribute with lookup
functionality into the existing CRM contact or account objects but this is
not possible with CRM 1.x.
The resulting UI would allow an end user to associate different contacts (or
accounts) to an account. Example:
- AccountPhysician: (existing account or con...running reports from MS CRM prompt for username and password
When running a report from Microsoft CRM client it prompts for username and

question: if MS CRM 3 is configured correctly is it normal that when trying
to generate a report in MS CRM prompt for username and password?
No, ideally it should pass the users AD credentials to the reporting IIS
server (single sign on). If you were to close the browser and run a different
report does it still prompt for credentials?
I've noticed this does also depend on the hostname. For instance if the
reporting server uses a differe...how do I import my contacts from IncrediMail 2.0 to MOutlook2007
