Opening External Websites from Navigation or Menus in Infor CRM (Saleslogix)

It’s an easy task to open an external website from the navigation (left nav area) or menus in Infor CRM (Saleslogix). One thing that is often overlooked it the ability to add Javascript as the URL property for navigation/menu items.

If you want to open an external website, simply add some Javascript like the following to the URL property of the navigation or menu item:

javascript: var win = window.open('http://google.com');

This will open google.com in a new browser window/tab (just like a hyperlink with target=”_blank”) when the navigation or menu item is clicked.

Obviously, you can do more than just open external websites in new browser windows. Since you can add javascript to the URL property of the menu items, you can execute any kind of javascript you’d like.
