    We succeeded to set up MS Outlook Add In and even use SSO link, so that user has no need for login credentials.

    Currently, every day, user is required to click “login” and confirm the popup.

    Is there any way to avoid manual logon and start automatically?

    Hi experts,

     

    I’m interesting in Social Contact creation/updating. In case when FB contact has changed the name but the e-mail is the same, will C4C creates a duplicate or will it update an existing one? And what if Contact will change the profile picture, will C4C updates it ?

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Narayan,

    The option Add mail allow to relate the mail to a Lead? The option appears greyed for me in Outlook.

    Best regards.
