  2. I saw Chris’ simple CRM blog and as I am looking for a similar solution, I’m hoping that I can shortcut the process by buying the templates off you guys rather than spending a few hours trial and error.

    Best regards

    Hey Chris,

    I am also looking for a similar solution. I tried to follow building your crm but for some reason there were no screenshots. Do you build custom solutions in office 365 that will sync with outlook?

    Hi Paul,
    Yes, I can absolutely help. WordPress seems to have had trouble with the images, there is a mirror of the posts over here:

    I do also do independent consulting, this blog will turn in to that site soon with the blog moved to a Blogs address when I can figure out how, so if you have some requirements shoot me a email and I will be happy to help.

    Hey Chris,

    I’ve been playing with the original megamenu as a solution for a project I have (I’m more an admin than a developer)- and the one thing I needed to add was security trimming. I grabbed the blue version above but when I build and deploy the solution it’s a mess. I’m sure I’m doing something wrong, but I haven’t changed the source files at all, just building and deploying. The css appears fine, but it’s as if nothing is being applied to the masterpage. I’ve verified the files and the links, everything looks right to me.
    Can you advise?

      Howdy Natalie,

      Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

      I do not have a suitable Dev environment to replicate right now, did you remove the original version you installed completely first?

        Oh I’m pretty sure it was operator error! :) It’s all working fine now. Though, I am wondering if there is any way to use the groups feature with out having to add all my users to a SharePoint security group. Currently we create AD security groups and add those to sites for permissions. The “groups” feature appears to only recognize users within SharePoint Groups. I’m mostly a no-code developer and poking around the interwebs I haven’t found a satisfactory anwer.

          Hi Natalie,
          The credentials in the web part settings is for AD have a play with these, it took me a couple of times but once they are correct, the AD groups will expand.

    Hi Chris,

    I got side tracked from this project but it’s back on. Can you clarify your last comment? Which web part settings are you referring to?
