Advanced template-group filtering

This feature offers the possibility to set a filter for DocumentsCorePack templates.
Templates are filtered based on the template-group they are assigned to.
Applying filter limits, the available templates are grouped in template-groups.
This prevents users from getting confused by a variety of available templates as they can only see and select templates of the corresponding template-group defined by the applied filter.

To take advantage of this feature you need at least both of the following versions:

 - DocumentsCorePack Server for MS CRM 2011 5.36

 - DocumentsCorePack Client for MS CRM 2011 5.73

Advanced [Print in Word]-Button Configuration

Basically, the default [Print in Word]-button contains JavaScript code in the background.

If you are familiar with CRM and JavaScript you can add your own custom buttons to  increase the usability of your CRM system.

You can modify the JavaScript code, so that - based on certain criteria - a template is automatically selected without user interaction.
