Faster & Smarter Management of Your Calendar

A major enhancement of the SalesLogix 8 involves the creating and management of your communications with improvements to the calendar, scheduling and alert notification.

The rich user web interface has a more streamlined look and feel that also provides improved performance and more personalization.

Configurable Pop up Alert Notification:

Alerts help you keep track of activities with triggered alarms and unconfirmed activities. The popup alerts can be configured to stay out of your way if needed.  Note the hyper links to quickly open the activity or linked account/contact. 

You can snooze or dismiss selected activity alarms, or snooze or dismiss all of your alarms.  You can also view Activity details and accept or decline unconfirmed activities.
