Table alias is not unique amongst all top-level table and join aliases – Exception

December 18, 2013 2 comments

Recently we upgraded from UR 8 to UR 13 and from then I was getting ‘Unexpected’ error when I was adding members to my ‘Dynamic Marketing list’ using ‘Advanced Find’ window.

Below is the error log from my Event viewer

Exception type: CrmException

Exception message: Table alias a_7f4fc1baff99e111bef200155dc87c59 is not unique amongst all top-level table and join aliases

This is a known issue  with UR 12 and would be resolved in UR 15.

Here is the link which has solution/workaround for the issue.

Show custom messages as banner notifications – CRM 2011

November 17, 2013 Leave a comment

In CRM 2011, one way to show custom messages is using Jscript ‘alert’ function.

In one of our requirement we have to display a custom message on CRM form banner like OOB notification.

Notification

Notification

We can achieve this using Jscript, but it’s an unsupported way and there are no guarantees that this code won’t change in the future.

I am providing 2 scripts which is compatible Pre and Post UR 12.

Post UR 12

// Level – 1 (Critical), Level – 2 (Info), Level – 3 (Warning),

function addNotification(message, level) {

try {

var notificationsList = Sys.Application.findComponent(‘crmNotifications’);

if (notificationsList) {

notificationsList.AddNotification(‘noteId1’, level, ‘namespace’, message);

}

} catch (e) {

}

}

Pre UR 12

// Level – 1 (Critical), Level – 2 (Info), Level – 3 (Warning),

function addNotification(message, level) {

try {

var notificationsArea = document.getElementById(‘crmNotifications’);

if (notificationsArea) {

if (level == 1) { //critical

notificationsArea.AddNotification(‘mep1’, 1, ‘source’, message);

}

if (level == 2) { //Info

notificationsArea.AddNotification(‘mep3’, 3, ‘source’, message);

}

if (level == 3) { //Warning

notificationsArea.AddNotification(‘mep2’, 2, ‘source’, message);

}

if (message == “”) { // Clear the notifications

notificationsArea.SetNotifications(null, null);

}

}

} catch (e) {

}

}

How do I use the method

  • To show custom message as Information, pass message and Level =2

              addNotification(“This is sample message.”, 2);

Note – CRM 2013, has a new feature to display  Notifications which is a supported way.

Lead qualify process design changes in UR 12 – CRM 2011

April 30, 2013 2 comments

In UR 12, the lead conversion process has been redesigned. Refer below for lead qualify process before and after UR 12

Lead conversion before UR 12

  • Before UR 12, we have “Qualify” button on Lead ribbon
  • It opens a “Convert Lead” web page, which gives us options to create Contact/Account/Opportunity.
Convert Lead

Convert Lead – Before UR 12

After UR 12

With new design, the “Convert Lead” dialog box no longer appears during lead qualification.

  • We have 2 ribbon buttons (Qualify and Disqualify).
Convert Lead - UR 12

Convert Lead – UR 12

  • The qualify button will automatically create the related Opportunity record based on the customer information entered into the Lead form
  • Associated Contact and Account records will also be automatically created based on the First Name, Last Name, and Company Name field data, respectively
  • If you click disqualify you are able to select the status reason, otherwise if you click qualify the lead will just automatically be qualified.
