Plugin to display a form RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All;

    Below is my plugin code

    if (((OptionSetValue)(context.InputParameters["Status"])).Value == 3) // status is the lead qualification reason selected by the user
                    context.InputParameters["CreateOpportunity"] = false; // set to true by default
                    context.InputParameters["CreateAccount"] = false; // set to true by default

    I need to open/display the contact form as the lead gets qualified

    Is that something i can do in plugin?

  • Plugin code runs on the server, so cannot open a form on the client. To open a form on the client, you will need to use Javascript

  • I haven't tried this. But when the lead gets qualified, the lead form refreshes, right? If yes, then in your convert to account/lead plugin update customerid of the lead being converted. Add customerid field on the lead form. On the Onload of the lead form, check if the customerid field is populated and if the lead form is readonly (I assume it becomes readonly), then redirect to the form based on the customerid.

  • I tried this yesterday in CRM 2013. What I noticed is that when you Qualify lead and do not select any account or contact while doing so, CRM creates an account for you based on the company name and a contact record based on the Name in the Lead. When  this entire process is done, CRM opens the opportunity that gets created.

    Unfortunately, CRM 2013 does not use new windows anymore. What it does is directly goes to the opportunity record that gets created. You may be able to set some field (a bit field) on opportunity form indicating that it was just created from lead qualification. And then on load of opportunity form, check for value in this field, and if it is true, and opportunity form has value in contact field, open the contact form.

  • i think i am not able to put my question correctly so will start again

    On lead qualification i have already made the create opportunity and create account form as false 

    it only creates contact form

    But the problem is this plugin creates the contact form on lead qualification but the contact form do not pop up 

    Any help on this much appreciated
