Cool widget ideas for SLX Web

With the growing popularity of Social Internet tools I'd like to ask for some ideas. Currently we are working on widgets for SLX Web in the following areas...

 

  • Twitter
  • Hoovers
  • Yahoo Finance
  • LinkedIn
  • GoogleMaps

 

Are there others you would like to see built? What tools do you use that make your life easier that we can integrate into SLX Web? Thanks for any feedback you can offer Smiley Happy

Re: Cool widget ideas for SLX Web

I think even ECM would be a good idea to integrate as a widget, midsized organizations use products like Sharepoint/FileNet. I am not sure if this fall in the social networking zone but then most organizations are still new to the concept of internet marketing through social networking tools, they do alternatively collaborate using either Sharepoint/Filenet or community servers.

Re: Cool widget ideas for SLX Web

At the risk of being labeled a heretic, how about some widgets for the LAN version too?  We were on 6.2.3 LAN/Remot Client.  We have just upgraded to 7.5 LAN/Remote Client and while the Web version of SLX is "spiffy", some of us, with extreme mods, can not and could not justify the cost to modify and port over all the changes to the Web version.  Until such time budgets free up (ha-ha), we are staying with 7.5 LAN/Remote client and would appreciate a little love thrown our way!!

Re: Cool widget ideas for SLX Web

Actually.. I did a "hack" to see if I could put the "TimeLine Mashup" in the Windows version of SalesLogix. - The Answer - YES it is VERY possible.

 

If there is significant interest, I'll build it out into something real.

 

What entities/MainViews would one like to see this in?

Re: Cool widget ideas for SLX Web

See, therein lies the (my?) problem.  Why should you, or anyone else for that matter, "hack" the system?  Granted, in this case I believe all you would be doing, in theory, is reading exisiting data, and then reporting it out in a different view.  The timeline feature is cool, I'll give it that.  And I believe it ties nicely into Opportunities since you can see at a glance where things are at, also a plus.  I just wish that some of the gee-whizz features available on the web version where also available on the LAN version.  (Whic God knows, we could start another whole message thread on that topic!!)

 

I guess one can say that any one's "hack" is just another term for "mod & bundle" in the end.

Realistically, I'm not sure you're going to see LAN version product investments.  As web interface seems to be the future and the core of all product enhancements.

Re: Cool widget ideas for SLX Web

At one time "hack" was a good word...

 

What I mean is that ..<COMMERCIAL> I'd make it available for sale if someone wants it </COMMERCIAL>
