Advanced Email Manager
Support for e-mail MAPI and POP
Allows separate
inbound/outbound mail servers
Secure SMTP supported
External databases may be read
and written to via the custom
scripting aspect.
Each mailbox is accessed and
controlled by its own thread
within the application.
Creating a New Script File
To create a new "Sales" email manager template.
Save the template into the same folder as the other template files.
C:\Program Files\Sage\CRM\Services\CustomPages\Scripts\sales.js
The template will automatically be seen and made available to CRM for use in the
Administration -> E-mail and Documents -> E-mail Management Server Options
when creating a new email address option.
Create a New Function
To allow a new function to be called from within template then you will need to add the
following Translation
Caption Family:
Caption Code:
US Translation:
jsfunctions
SalesEnquiry();
Sales Enquiry
Add other translations as required.
Basic Structure of Template Files

Log information

MailManager.log
**********RulesScript is...********
if (bCond)
{
AssignedUser = 4;
AssignedChannel = 1;
SalesEnquiry();
}
**********End of RulesScript.****
Where additional rule sets are used the
information passed to the script is changed
**********RulesScript is...********
if ((!CompanyQuery.EOF) &&
(CompanyQuery("comp_type")=="Customer")
)
{
AssignedUser = 4;
AssignedChannel = 1;
CreateRepeatSale();
bCond=false;
}
if (bCond)
{
AssignedUser = 4;
AssignedChannel = 1;
SalesEnquiry();
}
**********End of RulesScript.****
Errors in Log
Error detection is based on the status of the script after it
runs. The E-mail Management application runs the script and
captures the result of the script running.
Log file will contain the script and the error information. The
section where the script failed is highlighted.
E-mails that cause the system to fail internally are saved in a
rogue e-mail folder, which is located in
...\Program Files\Sage\CRM\Services\CustomPages\Scripts

Adding Debugging Messages
function BeforeMainAction()
{
MsgHandler.Log("BeforeMainAction function called");
}
function AfterMainAction()
{
MsgHandler.Log("AfterMainAction function called");
}
Example Main Function
function SalesEnquiry()
{
//add debug message to indicate that function called
//if sender is known contact then log new opportunity
//create communication
//automatically acknowledge email
If sender is unknown then
//create lead
//create communication
//automatically acknowledge email
}
function SalesEnquiry()
{
MsgHandler.Log("SalesEnquiry function
called");
//check if person exists
if (!PersonQuery.EOF)
{
createOppo();
createComm("Opportunity");
// sendEmail();
}
else
{
createLead();
createComm("Lead");
// sendEmail();
}
}
Example Create Opportunity
function createOppo()
{
var myRecord = CRM.CreateRecord("opportunity");
myRecord.Oppo_PrimaryCompanyId= PersonQuery("pers_companyid");
myRecord.Oppo_PrimaryPersonId= PersonQuery("pers_personid");
myRecord.Oppo_AssignedUserId= AssignedUser;
myRecord.Oppo_ChannelId= AssignedChannel;
myRecord.Oppo_Description= eMail.Subject.substring(0, 39);
myRecord.Oppo_Source= "Email";
myRecord.Oppo_Note= "Please see the attached email";
myRecord.Oppo_Status= "In Progress";
myRecord.Oppo_Stage= "Lead";
myRecord.Oppo_Opened = mydate.getVarDate();
myRecord.SetWorkflowInfo("Opportunity Workflow", "Lead")
myRecord.SaveChanges();
intOppoRecordID = myRecord.oppo_opportunityid;
}
Example Create Lead
function createLead()
{
var myRecord = CRM.CreateRecord("lead");
myRecord.lead_AssignedUserId= AssignedUser;
myRecord.lead_ChannelId= AssignedChannel;
myRecord.lead_Description= eMail.Subject.substring(0, 39);
myRecord.lead_Source= "Email";
myRecord.lead_Details= "Please see the attached email";
myRecord.lead_Status= "In Progress";
myRecord.lead_Stage= "NewLead";
myRecord.lead_Opened = mydate.getVarDate();
myRecord.SetWorkflowInfo("Lead Workflow", "Assigned")
myRecord.SaveChanges();
intLeadRecordID = myRecord.lead_leadid;
}
Example Send Email
function sendEmail(strsubject)
{
eMail.IsHTML = true;
SenderName = eMail.SenderName;
SenderAddress = eMail.SenderAddress;
MailSubject = eMail.Subject;
MailBody = eMail.Body;
eMail.Clear();
eMail.Recipients.AddAddress(SenderAddress, SenderName);
eMail.SenderName = MsgHandler.EmailAddress;
eMail.SenderAddress = MsgHandler.EmailAddress;
if (strsubject == "")
{
eMail.Subject = CRM.GetTrans("GenCaptions", "AutoReply") + ": " + MailSubject
}
else
{
eMail.Subject = strsubject;
}
eMail.Body = CRM.GetTrans("GenCaptions", "Your mail has been logged") + "<BR>" +
CRM.GetTrans("GenCaptions", "Thank you") + "<BR><BR>" +
CRM.GetTrans("GenCaptions", "Panoply Support") + "<BR><BR>" +
MailBody;
eMail.Send();
}
