what about the new Outlook client? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just went to download the Outlook client software and see that it is a new one with rollup 7 included, as of 10/22.

    It seems to have at least one difference.  The configuration wizard doesn't work but it will configure directly from Outlook.  In a new installation, where does it come up with the url?

    What else has changed?

  • Yes this is a new CRM outlook client with embeded UR7. There are several changes during installation but the wizard work also at the same way (first installation of CRM outlook client and later configuration). In the new UR7 biggest difference is that CRM addin is working in backgroud so you dont have to wait until it will load.

  • A few things that I can recall have changed:

    • You can't rollback the client
    • It detects when you're online and offline
    • It runs in the background when you start up Outlook (no more waiting to check your emails while the client authentices)
