Outlook should allow me to "complete" appointments & meetings



  • 1. Create New Appointment for Opportunity - Calendaring issue
    Assuming: BCM 2007 - Windows Vista - Shared database - 2 users - 2 desktops When I right click an opportunity and choose "Create New Appointment for Opportunity," it opens the appointment window. I fill it all in and it shows up on MY main calendar. The "appointment" only shows up on my main calendar, although in the contact's "history," the appointment DOES show as a "Meeting." Can anyone assist me in figuring out the best scenario for setting up our service appointments so that they show up in the same calendar which then will issues reminders or show up in the main Outlook window when starting Outlook? I know how to share a calendar, and I know how to use the company calendar in Exchange. Just not sure what is the best practice for being able to see our BCM Contacts' service appointments at a glance on either of our computers. Does this make sense? Thanks! Anya
  • 2. Managing Appointments with BCM
    Is there a way that I can access a business contact profile from my calendar? I noticed that I can set an appointment through a specific Customer profile by clicking on add an appointment, but when I do this the Customer name does not appear in the slotted appointment....and more interesting, it doesn't appear I can get back to the Customer profile when I click on the appointment that was scheduled through the manual "add and appointment" approach. Suggestions?
  • 3. Business Notes / Comments > Excel report
    I want to run a report on Business Notes for a Business Contact with a nicely-formatted Comments field. For example, when I make a call to a sales lead (Business Contact), I create a Business Note for that Business Contact, explaining what went on during the call in the Business Note's Comments field. Regularly, I have to give a report on all those Business Notes to my boss, but when I export the report to Excel, the Comments field is all screwed up. 1. I lose any line-breaks in the Comments field, leaving that column as an ugly wall-of-text. It makes my comments hard on the eyes and sometimes indecipherable. 2. I have to manually format that column every single time I run a report! Are there any solutions to these two problems?
  • 4. problem with Offline Folder File (.ost)
    I ran a file restore of the .ost andf .pst files in Outlook. Now when I open Outlook, I get the following message: "outlook is using an old copy of your offline folder file (.ost). Exit Outlook, delete the .ost file, and restart Outlook. A new file will be automatically created the next time you initiate a send/receive" The file is 2.28 MB, and I'm worried that if I delete it, I'll lose my Sent Items, Contacts, etc. If I delete it will the new one that is created maintain all of my information? -- Randy Bratton
  • 5. Options available for customizing a contact
    I am customizing the contact form in Business Contact Manager. I want a field (that I'll label "Notes") and it will be a text field. However, that text field on the form is limited as to the amount of information that can be entered by the user. Is there a way to make this longer ... or even unlimited? Thanks a bunch! -- Sammy

Outlook should allow me to "complete" appointments & meetings

So they can be tracked as history by contact and get crossed off when 
completed or missed or cancelled.

5.Meeting/Appointment Cancellations done in Outlook are not updated to MSCRM appointment


I have a problem regarding Cancelled Appointments in MSCRM for
Outlook. When I cancel a meeting or receive a mail saying that the
appointment is cancelled. The appointment activity in MSCRM does get
updated with the status and still shows open/active.

I tried to synchronize manually even though rest of the records
synchronized correctly the cancelled appointments are not getting
updated. Does anyone have any clues aout the same?

Thanks for your help.
