Legrand desktop CRM v7 for Windows 10

Important Note #1: please note that v7 will only work with CRM databases that have been upgraded to v7.   Do not download these software updates if you are using an earlier version - e.g. v6.5, v6 or v5 - as these installers do not include the database upgrade routines.  You will be left with a non-working system.  Please contact your Legrand Solution Partner to request your upgrade to v7.

Important Note #2: Versions 7.0.55 and higher require Microsoft .Net Framework version 4.8 on your computer.  The v7 installer will attempt to install .Net 4.8 if it is not detected on your PC but you will need Administrator permissions on your PC for this to succeed.   In the event the v7 installer fails to install .Net Framework 4.8 contact your IT Administrator and ask him/her to install .Net 4.8 on your computer. Or, you could manually download the .Net Framework 4.8 update installer from Microsoft and install it yourself prior to running the Legrand CRM install; again, you'll need Administrator rights in order to successfully do this.  The Microsoft .Net Framework 4.8 installer is available https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/4503548/microsoft-net-framework-4-8-offline-installer-for-windows

Starting from release 7.1.3 Legrand CRM is built and runs as a 64-bit application. Please read the notes at the start of the 7.1.3 change log section below regarding the significance of this change and the need for an adjusted one-off upgrade process from releases prior to 7.1.3.

Changes included in release 7.1.4:

    A new folder is introduced at this release to hold the attachments. Its location is set using a new Administration / Service Desk / Issue E-mail Attachments menu item

    The location will need to be set once by an administrator using this menu item. The default location is a folder named ‘Support_Attachments” under the existing shred folder location.

  • Change: Service Desk The description field has been added to the email sent to a user when a support ticket is assigned to them

Change Log 7.1.3

Important, please read before updating to 7.1.3

Starting with release 7.1.3 Legrand CRM is now built and runs as a 64-bit application. This change has been made to improve performance and reliability by leveraging the full capacity of 64-bit processors

There are three significant consequences of this change:

  1. When installing, we strongly recommend that when updating to this (or any future release) from release 7.1.2 or earlier you first uninstall the existing application and reinstall using the new installer (which can be obtained using the download link below).If this process is not adopted you will finish up with two versions of Legrand CRM installed on your machine, which could lead to confusion. In addition, if at some point in the future the old version is uninstalled then access to the new version will also be lost and a repair will need to be run on it to regain access.For this reason we also strongly suggest that this one-off upgrade should not be carried out using the automatic release publication service (the ‘get latest update’ link on the login screen), but instead be undertaken manually. Once this update has been installed all subsequent releases can be implemented using the automated process.
  2. Using ‘Send via Outlook’. Since the application has changed to 64-bit if you wish to use the ‘Send via Outlook’ email send method it requires a 64-bit install of Office; a 32-bit Office install will error when the ‘send’ button is pressed. This inverts the situation with earlier releases where 64-bit Office failed, 32-bit Office works.Our recommendation, as has been for some time, is that you switch to use the ‘Send Direct’ email method. If you wish to continue using ‘Send via Outlook’ we recommend that you migrate to 64-bit Office also, particularly if you are running a Terminal Server based installation. This will allow you to reap the full benefits of that change to 64-bit working. However, to cater for those customers who cannot quickly migrate we can provide a process for installation that will enable Legrand to run in 32-bit mode and integrate with 32-bit Outlook. Please contact our Support team if you wish to take this option. Please see this article if you need to check the bitness of your Office install.
  3. Quickbooks - Regrettably QuickBooks provides no method to allow a 64-bit application to communicate with it. Customers who are using Legrand CRM integrated with QuickBooks have no choice but to remain in 32-bit mode. Please contact our Support team before updating for details of how to ensure release 7.1.3 installs as a 32-bit application.

  • Fix: In some circumstances Lead Inbox was not capturing phone numbers from incoming mails correctly
  • Fix: The Activity Note tab could go missing from Lead Inbox due to a fault in permission checking
  • Fix: Recurrence was missing from the Create Calendar Event window when opened from an Opportunity or Service Desk ticket
  • Fix: The Add / Edit Product window was incorrectly restricting the length of item numbers and item names
  • Fix: QuickBooks Integration Create Customer could fail if the primary contact has a position defined
  • Fix: QuickBooks Integration Log files were not being created.
    In order to prevent excessive numbers of files being created a new setting has been introduced to enable logging to be turned on when required to investigate an issue. To enable logging an entry in the LegrandCRM.exe.config file should be edited:
    <appSettings>
    <add key="LogQBQueries" value="False" />      <!-- edit to read “True” to enable -->
    </appSettings>
    We recommend that for normal usage the value be left as “False”. Please contact our Support team if you require any advice on using this setting.

Important information on Mail templates
In v7 you have two alternatives for print templates:  Word templates and Document templates.

When you use a Word template the application opens up Microsoft Word 2016 and performs a Search & Replace on the merge codes.  The merged document is presented to you in Word.  You can then edit and add more text to the document, and print it when you’re done with your changes.  This is great when you want to produce a letter for one contact and you want to edit the content.  It is not a great solution if you want to print a standard document for many contacts.

Document templates  are used for mass printing of merge documents where you do not need to Edit/Add any content; e.g. standard terms, standard letters.   This function does not use Microsoft Word and is therefore a lot faster when printing the document for a multitude of contacts.
