Desktop Manager Update Check

Status: Accepted
by Nickel Contributor on ‎05-22-2014 10:08 AM

With SLX v8.1 Web Model Update 02 being released any customer who applies this update needs to have every end user update their SalesLogix Desktop Manager.


This is a major pain point for large saleslogix implementations. The whole reason these customers go to the web is so that they don't have to install software!


With that being said, I think a decent workaround would be if the desktop manager had the ability to check the portal URL and determine if an updated version of the Desktop Manager setup is available to download and prompt the user accordingly. At least this way it makes it a lot easier for end users to get the latest version.

Hi Anosh,


Great timing! We're actually working on this right now. It's still in the planning phase so I can't provide a timeline but we realize the importance of an autoupdate. I'll let you know how the feature progresses. Thanks!
