Create Temporary Group on Insert or Hyperlink

Status: New
by Bronze Elite Contributor on ‎06-04-2010 11:30 AM

Ya'll remember when this used to be a feature? In fact, it's still referenced in the help file


  1. In the General Settings area:

  1. In the Show On Startup box, select the default view you want the Sage SalesLogix Client to display on startup.

  2. If necessary, clear the Create Temporary Group on Insert or Hyperlink check box. When this option is enabled, a temporary group called Lookup Results is created when you add a record or click a hyperlink (for example, when you click the account name hyperlink on the Contact Detail view to open the Account Detail view). 

 I was training a new site yesterday and we inserted a new Contact and SLX prompty went to that new Contact and switched to the group "Lookup Results". The President of the company quickly picked up on this and asked how you turn it off. Well, I knew there was a way but I can't find it. I looked in the help file and saw the above referencing something that no longer exists.


I called support and was told it had been removed. However, there is a feature request (number 1-69674) to put it back.


I don't know about you all, but I always turned that annoying feature off.  Why would I want to switch a group of lookup results that will always have only one result? why, Why WHy WHY? Who made that extremely non-customer-centric decision? I'd like to see the scenario where it makes the customer's job easier. Seriously!
