There are three issues with the Job Service I have seen frequently.
The Lead conversion to a contact will fail if you are not filling in the entire address for the lead. There won't be any message telling the user that the address is insufficient just a failure

We recently had a client come to us with a problem running the Saleslogix 8.0 web client in IE. They would attempt to save data (causing a postback) and would get an error similar to: “message”: “Input string was not in a correct format.”, “source”: “System.Number, mscorlib, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089”, “type”: “System.FormatException&rd...
One of the nice things about the Saleslogix live grid in the web client is that you can make columns editable in line saving user input time. In the live grid’s column collection to do this you just need to define the Editable column to True. Well almost. You also need to set the […]
I recently ran into an issue with the Opportunity Products grid in the Saleslogix web client. I client had requested additional columns in the “Add” Lookup dialog. I had added the Price column as a field in the Lookup Columns collection. I could see that the constructed OpportunityProducts.js file contained my Price column markup when […]
Saleslogix will be releasing their Google Integration this month and from what I have seen, it is fantastic
Rich Eaton had asked a couple of times and I figured he was not the only one, so here it is! Previously I had written about how to get around the shortcomings of the static edit address part of the address control by using the Add Edit Address Smartpart instead. One thing that didn’t go […]
In the SalesLogix 8.0 web client that location changed along with pretty much all of the client side libraries. The new location where the Detail Reports are defined is now found in the database in the UserOptionDef table.
Did you know that if you set a picklist to have the Ïtem Must Exist”property set to True, that the picklist control will offer type ahead matching for the picklist? A nice feature.
I recently ran into a problem on a client system after applying an upgrade. When attempting to log into the Application Architect the login would get so far and then throw an error: There is an error in XML document(0,0). (System.xml)Root Elements is missing. (System.xml) The resulting problem was discovered to be that the system […]
Before v8.0 of the SalesLogix web client, it used to be that you could define for a given picklist control on a screen whether or not the picklist input allows free form input or not (text does not need to match). This is a property attribute of the web control on the form it resides […]
We have had several clients report random errors occurring in their SalesLogix v8.0 web client. No meaningful error is presented to the end user but on the web server’s Event Logs you can see something similar to this: 2013-12-05 08:15:36,025  ERROR SlxClient.InsertSalesOrderPage – SalesLogix Web Client unhandled exception during async postback [SalesLogix Error Id=SLX76DA70529671C361] […]
We have recently ran into a big problem with SalesLogix version 8, when using an external file-based VFS to develop and deploy from. There are several reasons to use an external VFS. Building from an external VFS is much faster than a database based VFS. But by far the biggest reason to use external VFS […]
In the SalesLogix web client, for all 8.0 versions up to core update 03, if there is a lead that contains activities, the lead cannot be deleted or converted to a contact/account successfully unless all of the activities are for the SalesLogix user attempting the delete. This is also true for the admin user- all […]
In a previous post, I talked about how you can access the client side group selection context to determine what records are selected in the SalesLogix web client in the group/list view. That post was for 7.5x SalesLogix web. The version 8.0 web client has replaced the ext-js group components with a dojo based solution. […]
SalesLogix 8.1 is due out in November and packs in many new features and functions. Here are some of the highlights-
We recently installed the SalesLogix web update 04 into a demo system and after doing so were unable to use Speedsearch in the SalesLogix web client. Looking into the error I was lead to the Speedsearch.aspx file’s Page_Load code. Looking into the Page_Load, I can see the actual error was caused by the call […]
I recently ran into an issue trying to use the old SQL Result Set action in the SalesLogix bundle process. When you choose this action you go through a process of selecting the table you want to bundle data from and then adding conditions to define what records from the table you need. Normally if […]
