Add custom block to right column (Desktop View Website Version)
Hi, I would like to add a custom block with links to specific Bitrix sections to the right column. Especially helpful to guide newly registered users to the appropriate sections. Could be a plain html-block or just a bullet-point-list which I can add links and headlines to. The announcement block is nice, but shows just not enough information.

Cheers.

Email Template Does Not Merge Contact.Name, Contact Name is not ins erted in to the template when sent...
Well, if I address a single person I do not necessarily need placeholders. Much more important if I address multiple recipients. But I +1 this issue somewhere else on the forum already. This really spoils the CRM experience - especially since we're mainly working with the crm contacts.
Sending newsletter to multiple contacts without adding a deal
Just an update, because I also posted this via a ticket and received an answer already.

Q1: Not possible yet.

Q2: My fault, I did not select existing contacts for the "to" field, but entered email addresses manually. If you select existing contacts fr om the CRM you can send emails without a deal attached.

Cheers.

Hello Yana,

is this feature still not working? I just tried, but placeholders do not get replaced by real names when sending an email via the CRM.

Sending newsletter to multiple contacts without adding a deal
Hello,

we have 500+ contacts in Bitrix CRM from different regions. Now we want to send a newsletter to a selection of the contacts (which span across multiple pages in the contact search result list).

Q1: How do I select contacts across different pages of the contact list? Is that possible? (I know I can display up to 200 per page)

Q2: B24 does not allow me to send the emails and throws me the following error message: "Please fill in the field 'To' or 'Deal'". Because it is a newsletter, there is no deal, which I would be able to attach. How is it possible to address multiple contacts without linking them to a deal? Do I have to move all contacts to leads?

In our company we're not using the complete crm functionality, just the database to store our contacts in.

Best,
Nils

CRM Ribbon
+1 on renaming and hiding crm buttons. We're also an NGO, using Bitrix mainly for our communications department. This means we're not really selling stuff, but we make use of the crm's contacts, companies (our media contacts) and "deals" (which is more "media project with a specific company or contact"). Would be of great help, if I could rename/hide specific buttons.
Mail Merge, Mass Mail Merge for Leads
Any solutions so far? If not, +1 for mail merge feature!

Adding public holidays to the calendar (bulk)
Hmm, that is not so great.

Say, in settings is an entry "Weekends and holidays" which contains a list full of dates. Can I enter the holidays in that place for the next year also? Because the values look like this .... 1.01,3.04,6.04,1.05,14.05,25.05, (not having the yyyy at the end). Can I just enter dates like 1.01.2016, 03.03.2016 and so on?

Cheers,
Nils
Adding public holidays to the calendar (bulk)
Hi,

I need to add public holidays 2016 to the calendar forour staff, so everybody will have the information available. Can I import an ics-File to our group-calendar? Or any other idea how to solve that issue? Sure there must be a practical way without entering every date by myself.

Cheers.

Add absence for colleague, How to add absence in colleagues calendar
Hello,

our executive assistant needs to update absences for colleagues on short notice in case somebody forgets to document the absence him or herself. I know how to grant her access to add or edit in her colleagues calendars. However, the way it is now, she has to search for a colleague, open the colleague's profile, access the colleague's calendar in the top navigation bar and then she can finally add a absence. That is a pretty long way to go...

Is it possible for her to add absences for colleagues while viewing her own calendar or any other quick way of fulfilling that task?

All the best,
Nils

Link Company Drive To Desktop App
Hello Yana,

I have an additional question. I know how to connect single folders from the company drive to my desktop app. However, my company would like to connect the company drive (or all folders within) to the app by default (for every registered company user). Is that possible?

Regards,
Nils

Ok. The other option does the trick.

Thx.

That's a valid option. Thanks for the hint. Is there any option to bulk edit posts?

Delete group, keep posts, Move group posts to main activity stream
Hi,

I would like to delete a group, but keep the content that is posted in it. Is their a way to save the content without copy/pasting/re-publishing? Best would be if I could bulk edit the "to:" for all existing group posts to "All employees".

Regards,
Nils
Automatically assign task after user joins group
Hello,

I just created a new group . Now I want to set up an initial task for every user in this group (like introduce yourself to the group), which will be assigned automatically once a user joins the group. Is that task-behaviour possible and how do I set it up?

regards,
Nils
