I recently installed the Intellisync Application in a Citrix environment for a new client. From past experiences I thought this would be a nightmare but the new Intellisync client installed very smoothly once we had the prerequisites completed successfully. My first step
We found an installation with both the SalesLogix LAN client and the web client that displayed the account assets tab differently. In the LAN client all assets displayed and on the Web Client only assets with a contact displayed. If there is a primary contact assigned to the account then the asset will automatically default to that contact and display
