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.
The article explains the following two features which are available in the GroupCalendar’s GANTT views only:
Please note: Version 5.46 or higher is required. (Click here to download the latest GC version).
When you launch an upgrade installation of our products, the setup will update existing files and solutions in CRM. The default behaviour of upgrading a product installation has changed with all releases after 1st of March, 2013.
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!
Thank you for joining us at the eXtremeCRM 2013 in Rome! It was great meeting you there!
The eXtremeCRM in Rome was an awesome experience for us. Arriving in beautiful Rome with sunshine and mild temperatures around 15 degrees, we checked in to the Rome Marriott Park Hotel and were delighted by the comfortable and beautiful ambience. As we arrived two days earlier, we did not hesitate to start discovering the beautiful city during a sightseeing tour on Saturday, visiting the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Saint Peter’s Cathedral and many more of the impressing sights.
Where will you be 3-6 February, 2013? We will be at the eXtremeCRM 2013 in Rome, Italy as a silver sponsor, presenting our powerful addons to the audience.
Up from GroupCalendar version 5.37 it is possible to embed GroupCalendar into a CRM entity. GroupCalendar will display all activities for which the currently opened record is set as Regarding.
In this mode, all users will be listed in the GroupCalendar’s Gantt and TopDown View without the option to hide some of them.
Also, you cannot change the displayed users/team when opening the GroupCalendar from an entity.
Since CRM 2011, it is possible to specify working hours and time-off (e.g. vacation) for each user and resource. With GroupCalendar v5.37 or higher, it is now possible to show these working hours and the time-off.
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.
