GroupCalendar Online 2015 Update

It has been a while since the last GroupCalendar Online update. We have now added a few improvements that require your attention. Many of our customers are still on the GroupCalendar 2013 instances which are not up to date anymore. To benefit from the new improvements and features of the GroupCalendar 2015 version, we would need you to perform a simple task for us.


GroupCalendar Online 2013 post-upgrade Steps

Please note: This article applies only to GroupCalendar ONLINE!

After we have finished upgrading your GroupCalendar to CRM 2013, it is highly recommended to perform the following steps to ensure full compatibility.


How to change the default pinned/unpinned status of the GroupCalendar side pane

The GroupCalendar side pane (which holds the view settings etc.) is per default unpinned. With a manual user-based setting it is possible to change the default behavior so that the GroupCalendar is opened with a pinned side pane.


How to enable debugging for the DCP UploadFile SharePoint webservice

1. Open the IIS on the SharePoint server and navigate to the SharePoint Site where DocumentsCorePack (DCP) is configured and the UploadFile.asmx WebService is installed. Select the IIS Website and click on Explore as marked in Figure 1.

GroupCalendar for CRM Online & Internet Explorer 10

There is another small update of the MSCRMADDONScomGeneral Solution which fixes a issue with Internet Explorer (IE) 10 when running in compatibility mode. When you're not using IE 10 yet it is not critical when you do not import the updated solution. But we still recommend to update the solution to be prepared for IE 10.


GroupCalendar fully supports Dynamics CRM RU12 (Polaris) and cross-browser compatibility

Our GroupCalendar for MS Dynamics CRM 2011 fully supports CRM RU12 (Polaris).
Up to now, the only workaround was to open the GroupCalendar in a new Internet Explorer-window.
Up from v5.45, GroupCalendar opens again directly within CRM. Furthermore, Chrome and Firefox are also fully supported by the GroupCalendar. This release also supports older CRM Rollups!


Insecure content warning in IE when using FileExplorer with IFD

If you have configured your CRM for IFD and also have enabled our FileExplorer Integration, Internet Explorer (IE) will either not load the FileExplorer or show a message about insecure content.

If you run into this problem, please follow the steps below to resolve this issue.


GroupCalendar online license notification

Per default, GroupCalendar will show 10 days prior to the license expires a notification to all users (see Figure 1).

The notification can be limited to specific users and you can set the date of its first appearance.


GroupCalendar Gantt View: Custom columns in the user list

Up from version 5.24 you have the possibility to customize the user pane of the Gantt view.


Gantt Printpreview for GroupCalendar

GroupCalendar version 4.84 offers a print preview of the Gantt View. This requires a small client side installation.
