Triggers for “Search and Select” Ref App fields
You can now set Triggers for the Standard “Search and Select” Ref App fields. Triggers were set for the Reference App and the Standard fields of the App so far. Now you can set the triggers to the Standard Search and Select Reference App fields.
Value Restriction Updated through Trigger
In the Contacts App, you can have the Value restriction for the attribute which is updated through Trigger as a new feature implemented in this release. If the trigger is set to drive an attribute that eventually value restricts another field, then the Trigger drives both functions at the same time.
Import of Unsubscribe and Bounced Values
One of the most important enhancements made in this release is the import of “Unsubscribe” and “Bounced” fields in the Contacts App. Apptivo CRM allows you to import your Contacts into Contacts App in CSV format. At a time you can import up to 5000 records. This minimizes the manual effort of entering the data one by one. Also, duplicate contacts can be filtered while importing the data.

Adding to the noteworthy implementation list is the creation of Tags by Employees/contacts. The Super User of the firm has access to the creation of the tags while the other users can use the created tags. But, you can also provide the privilege of creating tags by the other users without giving access to the Settings. You can provide the privilege of creating tags in Contacts, Cases, Customers, Leads, and Opportunities Apps.
