The Sage SalesLogix v8.0 release includes a new Availability tab from which you can see when the leader, other invited members, or any required resources are available.
This new Availability tab is accessible from the Schedule Activity or Edit Activity views and shows calendar information for activity participants who are Sage SalesLogix members and resources.
From this tab you can:
In addition to these new features, if your implementation uses ExchangeLink, meeting location information will sync between Microsoft Outlook and Sage SalesLogix.
Look for more information about these and other features in Sage SalesLogix v8.0 as the release date gets closer.
awesome , i recollect the LAN client required the outlook integration for the attendee availability to be working but am presuming for the web client it does not have this dependency. This is a great featureset.
Now all we need is to have this added to the LAN/Windows clients as well ;-)
Sorry guys, we didn’t solve for that problem. The Advanced Outlook Integration Attendee tab in the LAN\Windows Client provides availability in Outlook for non-Sage SalesLogix Members and Resources. The Web Client Availability tab shows free/busy for Sage SalesLogix Members and Resources. If your Sage SalesLogix user’s calendars are managed outside Sage SalesLogix, you’ll still need to use an external tool to exchange data.
@Mari - well aware of that.. BUT if one does not have exchange (on site) then the AOI "feature" is totally useless to WIndows/LAN users.
What I am seeing is customers in the installed base who have been running their business on WIndows/LAN for (up to a decade) do not want to completely switch to web immediately and tend to run a "mixed" environment by having the web customized for "field" (sales) use only and keep inside folks on Windows/LAN.
Just as there initially was the "like-for-like" effort to bring WIndows/LAN features to the web - it's time now to also bring newer web features back to WIndows/LAN.
