Though released in late April, 180° Solutions is now ready to endorse GoldMine Premium Edition 18.104.22.168. If you have worked with us for a while, you will start to recognize several of our well-used mantras. One of those is “there is no reason to chase technology”. The spirit behind that one is, just because a new version/build is out, that doesn’t mean everyone should hurry up and upgrade to it.
We have now been running it in production for almost 5 weeks and we have helped several customers install/upgrade this latest release as well. So far everything looks great. Want to learn more about this in this new release? Here ya go:
WHAT’S NEW IN GOLDMINE PREMIUM EDITION 9.0.4
- GoldMine Premium Edition now supports GoldMine Mobile Edition 9.
- A new Messaging tab appears in the user options screen when a GoldMine Mobile license is added to the License Manager. The Messaging tab enables users to receive alarms for upcoming activities on their mobile devices as SMS messages. For more information, please review the GoldMine Mobile Edition Installation and User Guide. The Pager tab that appeared in previous releases is no longer displayed.
WHAT’S ENHANCED IN GOLDMINE PREMIUM EDITION 9.0.4
- GoldMine Plus for Microsoft Outlook now includes an option to file Outlook e-mail messages in a specified GoldMine folder. To use this option, go to Setup GoldMine Plus > Options and select the “As a completed activity in the filed e-mail folder” button and uncheck the “Fast File” option. If an e-mail message is instead linked as a pending activity, there will be a new File button active on the GoldMine pane in Outlook, enabling the message to be filed on demand.
- To improve performance in the GoldMine E-mail editor, the “Regarding:” drop-down list (where the user can select an opportunity, project, or case) will only show 50 items related to the current contact. If a larger list is necessary, the following entry can be added to the gm.ini file:
[GoldMine] MaxRegardingListSize=n (where n is the desired list size)
- To support environments where there is no C:\ drive available, GoldMine Plus for Microsoft Outlook now has a setting that enables an administrator to choose where system log files are created. If an alternate location is needed, add an entry to the gm.ini in the following format:
- The checkboxes used to set up automatic synchronization with Outlook have been modified to clarify their behavior. To use automatic synchronization with Outlook, go to Tools > Synchronize > Synchronize with Outlook and check “Automatically synchronize with Outlook”. In addition, there is a secondary option, available at Tools > Configure > Outlook Integration Settings > Synchronization, which enables the synchronization schedule to be activated when Outlook is opened. This option is now labeled “Use automatic synchronization when Outlook is open” and now can be enabled only if “Automatically synchronize with Outlook” is checked.
