NexJ Add-In for Microsoft Office

NexJ Add-In for Microsoft Office integrates the use of Microsoft Office applications and NexJ CRM.

In Microsoft Outlook, it allows users to log emails sent between NexJ CRM users and contacts as an email activity in the Activities tab of each contact whose address appears in the email. It also allows users to create a follow-up task using the contents of a selected email. This feature uses the subject of the email as a task description, and the body as task notes. It allows users to create a task as they normally would, with all the usual components, directly from Outlook.

NexJ Add-In provides additional Microsoft Word functionality. It allows users to create documents with NexJ Add-In merge fields, so they can personalize these documents for different entities in the application, and lets them perform batch print jobs.

NexJ Add-In integration with NexJ CRM

Changes between different releases of NexJ CRM can affect NexJ Add-In functionality.
