  • Good example, but you didn't explain how to determine what event you want to use or analyzing what events already exist.  There is a lot more options available as I have personally discovered 😉 .  It was also good showing people the registration in the correct place.

    For those interested program CRM_EVENT_TRACE can be used to help find the correct event needed for your logic.

    Take care,


      • Thanks for the excellent post.

        Can you please tell us while creating callback FM, do we have to maintain Importing and Exporting parameters ?

        If yes, Please guide us what to maintain ? Any standard structure will be there for Importing and Exporting parameters for Call back FM ?
