In environments where a host computer's Synchro-Server is mounted on SalesPartner versions 188.8.131.52 onwards, socketserver.exe requires elevation for clients to successfully transfer data. Note: SynchroServer requires an update to support 64bit Trade Me ID numbers which you can download from:
On the computer where SynchroServer is installed, open C:\spartner\Synchro and right-click scktsrvr.exe. In the Compatibility tab, tick Run this program as an administrator. Restart the computer to apply changes or you can manually restart the SocketServer via the system tray.
In this example, an agent's computer produces the following error when they attempt to sync listings after their office's front desk machine updated SalesPartner to 184.108.40.206: Cannot access directory. File or directory does not exist. File: C:\Windows\System32\Pdoxusrs.Lck Permission denied.
Once the SynchroServer computer is configured as described above, the issue will be resolved. This error will not arise if the Socket Server is running as a system service.
This version mitigates against advert related Trade Me upload errors. Specifically, errors caused by special characters being transferred from Microsoft Word. When an advert is composed in Word, invisible formatting characters are frequently embedded into the text. These hidden characters must be cleaned to avoid issues when you attempt to upload a listing from SalesPartner to Trade Me. In version 220.127.116.11, MS Word specific characters are handled automatically so that the upload can succeed.
In OfficePartner > Sales, you can filter the list of sales by date and status (Finalised / Conditional / Sold etc.).
In this example, we selected Conditional, Sold, and Finalised. Click More, then tick Search By Date to reveal the date range options. Select a date range then click Apply.
To create a report for these listings click All then Reports. If more than 100 listings are selected the reporting system may take a few moments to load.
In Contacts you can add a note for multiple selected contacts at a time. This is useful when you wish to add an activity record for a group - for example if you are sending an email to multiple recipients and want to record the event.
After you have filtered your contacts or opened a particular group, select the contacts you wish to add a note for.
Click Tools > Add Note
Enter a description and click OK to save this note against all of your selected contacts. You can adjust the activity date and select the activity type: Note or Letter.
In this scenario a manager wishes to use their local salesperson copy of SalesPartner on their PC, while also having the ability to access a networked copy of OfficePartner. By creating an alias entry, they can switch from their local data to accessing the networked office system. The server and client instances are both running version 12.
Prerequisites: spartner is shared on the server and the BDE / INI is configured accordingly.
In BDE Administrator on the client instance a new Alias is created via Object > New, named 'Office'. This alias's path is pointing to the spartner\data folder on the server.
On the client PC's desktop, a copy of the OfficePartner shortcut is created. We then right-click and edit the shortcut properties. In General the shortcut is renamed as Office Network. In Shortcut the path below is entered into Target.
Important: A networked copy of OfficePartner cannot be run simultaneously alongside SalesPartner running locally. Local BDE dependent applications including SalesPartner and SalesNet must be closed before launching the networked copy of OfficePartner. Also the other way around - the networked copy of OfficePartner must be exited before opening local applications.
