  • Launching Schedule Activity functionality in the SLX Web client

    On a recent project, I worked on emulating functionality similar to what is found in the LAN client where a user is presented a dialog asking them to choose between different activity types then launching into the Schedule Activity functionality.

  • Displaying external data in SageCRM with ASP

    In my last blog post, I outlined how to display data from external database in SageCRM 200. This week, I'm going to do the same thing, but instead of connecting to an external datasource through SageCRM, I'm going to display the data using a custom ASP page.

  • Displaying external data in SageCRM 200

    In this post, I will outline a relatively simply process for displaying data in SageCRM from an external data source. To keep this simple, we're not going to worry about any sort of security, and we'll save more advanced formatting for another post. First of all, we need to create a reference...

  • Using Picklist data revisited

    Back in January, I posted about the SalesLogix picklist data structure, and outlined how to use the data found in the picklist table to populate other controls such as comboboxes and listboxes.

  • Using SQL views to incorporate external data into SalesLogix customizations

    Did you know that you can include SQL views in SalesLogix? This can be a very handy method to include data that is not normally part of SalesLogix.

  • Events based on history in version 6.x SalesLogix

    Prior to version 7, there was limited access to those activity and history areas in SalesLogix. In a recent project, I had to perform a series of tasks upon completing an activity with a particular Type/Category/Result combination. This had to be done in a 6.2.1 system. In order to do this, I had to...
