Whether you are preparing to install and configure Sage SalesLogix for the first time, or if you are looking to upgrade system components that directly function with SalesLogix, the SalesLogix Compatibility Checklist is a reference guide to assist you with the process. The SalesLogix Compatibility Checklist is a resource that is available on the SupportOnline website (After Login, click Find an Answer, then Compatibility Checklist).
The Compatibility Checklist is a valuable self-service resource that you can use to determine the best configuration for your SalesLogix version. This is also a good resource when troubleshooting an issue, as this can assist with identifying potential challenge areas or focus areas. This is a resource that the SalesLogix Support Staff relies on when assisting customers with questions or when they are experiencing challenges. An additional self-service resource that can assist with compatibility questions is the Knowledgebase. Searching for "compatibility" will bring up additional resources that may answer your compatibility questions.
