Can we customize the screens?

To some extent you can. For example, the Home pages or form layouts are all customizable. If you have more extensive customization, we ask that you contact the support team for more information about Professional Support Services.

If I need a specific or unique field added to the platform do I need to contact customer support? Or can I modify/add this field on my own?

Customization can be done by your System Administrator by managing platform Settings.

Questions about Outlook

How can I sync Outlook on Vista?

See details at Outlook Sync.

Does Outlook Sync allow selective syncing of records?

We currently do not offer the functionality that lets you do a selective syncing of records. However, you can choose not to propagate the deletions by clicking the 'Undelete' button. This will let you sync the additions and modifications made in the platform/Outlook but not the deletions. You can also choose to Exclude Private Data, and sync only public data.

Questions about Templates

How do Print Templates work? Do you have any samples?

You can use Print Templates that will allow you to set up a document that pull information from a specific object (or tab). You can use these print templates to set up standard proposals, queries, contracts, invoices, etc. Below is a link to help you get started.

The email template does not seem to be working

Check the variable name(s) you are using in your template. The variable name should match the tab you are using. For example, for a view from the Contact object, use the variable name $contact.first_name.

How do I create a dynamic list (view)?

Views created with criteria like Contacts belonging to a specific industry are fluid in nature, New contacts added within that industry will automatically become part of the industry specific view. A view is dynamic, unlike a list, which is a static group of records that you can edit as needed.

How do I add contacts to lists?

You can create lists by going to Contacts View, Checking those contacts that you want to add to a list and then clicking on Group Operations->Create View on the Left. The list that you saved will be saved as a View in Contacts tab which can be edited any time. Lists are static, unlike Views, which find all records that meet the filter.

How do I create a webform?

You can create a web form that you can post onto your website and once a user fills it out and submits the form, it will generate a record into the platform. For detailed information, see Web Form.

How can I delete a large number of records?

Why is my picklist not showing the right values?
