There’s an annoyance in Infor CRM Web (Saleslogix) that most people have when viewing long notes or emails in the Notes/History tab. There’s a “View More” link, but clicking that only reveals a bit more. You click it again and it reveals a little more, and you repeat that several times until the entire note […]
I recently bumped into an issue with the order in which the utility (CreateUnicodeDB) creates database objects. SQL Users and schemas are processed first, followed by SQL tables, followed by the other SQL objects. In this particular database, there were scalar UDFs being used to create computed columns in a number of the SQL tables. Since the utility creates Tables before UDFs, it would error out on any table referencing that non-existent U...
There are three issues with the Job Service I have seen frequently.
Fix for Setting the Title on Detail Views When Navigating from SpeedSearch Results in the Infor CRM Mobile Client

The Editable Grid, or SData Grid in the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) web client is a dojo-based grid based on dgrid. This means that, for the most part, you can do just about anything with the editable grid that you can do with dgrid. In Infor CRM, there’s a few layers to the grid that you […]
In my last blog I talked about how to fix timeless activities to show the correct date in sdata grids. A different fix needs to be put in place in order to have these same dates show correctly if they are added to a column in a group layout for the Infor CRM 8.3.09 web […]
Make sure your Infor CRM web server is behind a firewall that blocks traffic on port 11211.
In the Infor CRM 8.3.09 web client timeless activities in the sdata grid display their dates as one day off due to UTC offset incorrectly being applied to these records. The sdata grids all inherit from the Sage.UI.Controls.GridParts.Columns.DateTime widget. Because of this we can fix the base widget function returning the incorrect date value and […]

This interface is found in the Sage.Platform.ComponentModel […]
