    To hide account information in the search results, contact the Riva Success Team.


Track in CRM Only

New features or customizations

  • Populated module fields and history of tracked items:
    (New feature available for Track in CRM in all three Riva Insight add-ins: Outlook Web, Windows for Outlook, and IBM Notes.)
    To make it easier to select items to track in CRM, the Contact, Account, Opportunity, or other module fields (including custom modules) are now drop-down fields that are autopopulated with the following items:
    • The items that you track during the current work session.
    • The items related to the emails or appointments that you select in the mail client during the current work session.
    Operational notes:
    • The populated items are retained during the current work session. Closing Track in CRM clears the module field contents.
    • When a contact is tracked, its associated account is also retained in the tracked accounts history.
    • When you select a contact, the associated account is automatically selected.
    • If an account in the history is associated with only one contact in the history, then when you select the account, the contact is automatically selected.

  • The date and time of a tracking request are recorded:
    (New feature available for Track in CRM in all three Riva Insight add-ins: Outlook Web, Windows for Outlook, and IBM Notes.)
    When a user selects Track to initiate the tracking of an email to CRM, the date and time of the user's action are recorded in a property on the mail item.
    That property is used by the Riva Insight server 2019.1 or higher to display the Track and the Lock statuses of the email in Track in CRM.
    Requirement:
    • Outlook add-in 1.26 or higher; or
    • IBM Notes add-in 1.0.62 or higher.

  • Ability to prevent Track in CRM from tracking a mail module:
    (New feature available for Track in CRM in all three Riva Insight add-ins: Outlook Web, Windows for Outlook, and IBM Notes.)
    The tracking of appointments, emails, or tasks can be disabled in Track in CRM.
    After the tracking of a module has been disabled, if a user selects an item of that module in the mail client, Track in CRM displays a message that tracking has been disabled for that module.
    To disable the tracking of one or more mail modules, contact the Riva Success Team.

  • Handling the potential tracking of an email, non-recurring appointment, or task a second time to the same contact or opportunity:
    (New feature available for Track in CRM in all three Riva Insight add-ins: Outlook Web, Windows for Outlook, and IBM Notes.)
    Requirement for Riva Insight On-Premise: Riva Sync On-Premise 2.4.51.53615 or higher.
    If an email, non-recurring appointment, or task has already been tracked to a given contact or opportunity and the same item is selected for tracking to the same contact or opportunity, a warning or an informational message is issued.
    • A warning prevents tracking the item. There is no Okay button.
    • An informational message lets you decide whether to track the item a second time or not. The Okay button is available for selection.
    By default, an information message is issued.
    To configure Track in CRM to issue a warning, contact the Riva Success Team.
