Sage CRM v7.1 SP2
With Sage CRM v7.1 Service Pack 2 (SP2) fully tested and ready to go, we’re proud to announce that the theme of this release is Cross Browser Compatibility. We have been aware for some time that Cross Browser compatibility is a major customer requirement. This is even reflected on our ideas hub – you’ll see it’s one of the top requested features. In an effort to deliver Cross Browser Compatibility to you as soon as possible, we have included it in the upcoming service pack rather than asking you to wait until our end of year release.
Cross Browser Compatibility - what are the end user browser options in SP2?
As most of you are aware, previous versions of Sage CRM were optimised for Internet Explorer. The options listed below will be available to end users in SP2. Cross browser compatibility is focused on the end user experience, i.e. the Main Menu area. The user experience and functionality throughout the Main Menu is consistent across Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer (IE).
End User Supported Browsers in Sage CRM v7.1 SP2
IE – versions 7, 8 and 9 (as per Sage CRM v7.1 SP1)
Safari – latest version Safari browser on OSX (Apple MAC). Note that the Tablet theme is recommended for use with iPad – IOS is not in scope)
Chrome – latest version
Firefox – latest version
Mail Merge and Document Filing
The Mail Merge and Document Filing features required special attention when it came to making them work across different browsers. Both features depended on an Active X plugin, which meant that the features only worked on IE and that end users needed to install the plugins themselves. Focusing on these features meant that we could make them work effectively across different browsers and also enhance their feature sets.
