The CRM Zen Show Episode 194 – Pocket Full of Workdrive

Zoho News

Implementation of the Week

  • Mail Merge Tabular Data Conversion to Dynamic Length Bulleted List
    • In CRM and/or Creator records, data can be tracked as subforms
    • Subforms give the user a way to create a list of data contained within a primary record (ex: Products on a Deal)
    • In this case, we wanted to merge this data into a PDF document as a bulleted list, however, the length of the list can vary significantly
    • By using a dynamic table in Writer, with a full-page background image, we developed a method to merge in as many rows as necessary, where the containing page will duplicate itself dynamically to continue the list

Code Share of the Week

  • Calling and Updating CRM Global Variables
    • A use case example of this would be a round-robin function and you need to store who the last user was that got a lead.  Sign in to Club Zenatta for a full explanation of its uses and the code itself.
