October 9 Blog Review

By Kylie Kiser posted Oct 09, 2015 06:10 PM


It’s a short blog review today because I still have lots of packing to do for CRMUG Summit! I’m looking forward to the week out in Reno connecting with so many great CRM professionals! My goals this year are to learn how to successfully upgrade from CRM 2011 to (hopefully) 2016 with minimal loss of sanity. As well as learning how to be a better Chapter Leader for Washington, DC (and promoting #CRMUGDC too)!

Some other reading for this weekend includes PowerObject’s JavaScript Best Practices for CRM 2015. This talks about what you can do but also gives some things to keep in mind while you are coding away.

CRM Tip of the Day shared Whatever happened to the “copy a link” button? This talks about how the button was removed in 2015 but there are a few ways to still get the link. (Spoiler alert: It was removed due to cross browser compatibility issues.)

CRM Tip of the Day also posted Do not Reuse the Owner field. This describes how the Owner field is much more than just a user lookup and how you need to make sure you consider security and all the implications before reusing that field.

Sonoma Partners blogged on Upgrading to CRM 2015? Here’s what you should Consider. This walks through a few things to keep in mind and the new features that you may want to upgrade for.

That’s all for today. I hope to see many of you in Reno!

1. Limit the number of Script libraries your form references.
Oh how wise this advice is. Having multiple js resources is a disaster waiting to happen. But how can one accomplish this?
As a rule of thumb, I only have 1 js script per entity. I do code reuse (40+ modules), use 3rd party libraries (20+) and have a some html thrown in. All package into 1 javascript file.
What is this voodoo? No, it's not voodoo, it's AMD (Asynchronous Module Definition).
My favorite is RequireJS, but I also like Browserify. And the best part? The 1 js file is usually 50%-70% smaller than the multiple js files that I refactored. Minification is a beautiful thing.
