CRM for Distribution

In this latest version, we’ve tested & certified that CRM for Distribution is ready for the latest release of Microsoft CRM 2016. We’ve also added enhancements to the sales history process and the Outlook client, as well as implemented some fixes to ensure CRM for Distribution is running optimally.  Please reach out to Beringer to discuss scheduling your upgrade.

  •  CRM 2016 & 2016 U1 Compatible

 

Bug Fixes:

  •  Removed Site map from solution to avoid overwriting new sitemaps with new versions
  •  Quotes marked as completed when updated from an Order
  •  CRM for Phones and Tablets does not properly support JavaScript, so key functionality was replaced with Business Rules

Sunset:

  •  Color Coding on Account Forms.  Will be removed in version 2016.0.17
