SalesLogix Mobile v5.5 is currently in beta, and while there is no public release date there are some great new features that will be available in the new version. Interested? Here is what you can expect:
|Administration||Add User Wizard||Bulk import and setup of users into the Mobile Adminstrator.|

|Status Dashboard Enhancements||Monitor sync status for individual users, and drill down into device info and client applicatoin logs.|
|Mobile Clients||Pause and Resume||When connectivity is lost during a sync the process will automatically pause and then continue when connectivity is restored. Users can also manually pause and resume a sync.|
|Backup and Restore||Key SalesLogix data is backed up to the server during a sync and restored to the client if the Mobile application must be re-installed, eliminating the need to reset the Site Code. The BlackBerry PIN number is sent to the server during initialization eliminating the need to manually enter it when implementing AutoSync.|
