Misc Features - Build 4
 1. Renamed DocumentHeaders and DocumentItems ExtraXXX fields to replace the word "Extra" with "Addon", and the ExtraLogic01 field was dropped. These "AddOn" fields are now available in print layouts and reports, also macros like &DH_AddOnText01. These fields are accessible through the QuoteWerks API. These fields are not visible anywhere on the quote, they are meant to be a behind the scenes data storage area for developers. [Service Release: 4.06]

 2. The 'Utilities->Merge Remote Documents' menu was renamed to 'Merge Document Transport Files". Also the 'Utilities->Rebuild CM Transport Files' menu was renamed to 'Rebuild Document Transport Files'. [Service Release: 4.06]

 3. For the last 20 years, QuoteWerks has mostly relied upon the DocumentHeaders.SoldToCMAccountNo field to store the linked CRM contactID value in. Over the years as we have supported newer and different CRMs, it required that we also stored a SoldToCMCompanyRecID value which contained the record id of the CRM Company/Account. This SoldToCMCompanyRecID value has been stored in xml in the DocumentHeaders.DynamicStorageDH field. Additionally for salesforce.com and GoldMine the data stored in these fields is actually reversed. Changes have been made in this build. The DocumentHeaders.SoldToCMAccountNo field has been renamed to DocumentHeaders.SoldToCMContactRecID. There is now a DocumentHeaders.SoldToCMCompanyRecID field. There is now a DocumentHeaders.SoldToCMSecondaryContactRecID field. These same changes were applied to the "ShipTo" and "BillTo" counterpart fields. The "reversed" data for GoldMine and Salesforce.com has been corrected. [Service Release: 4.06]

 4. The MS CRM integration to version of MS CRM earlier than MS CRM 6.0 has been discontinued. [Service Release: 4.06]

 5. For Kaseya BMS users, when Creating/Updating a BMS Opportunity, if the list of available opportunities returned from Kaseya BMS for the Account exceeds 100, a label will appear as a visual indicator. [Service Release: 4.06]

 6. Activated beta testing support for SugarCRM 11.1 [Service Release: 4.06]

 7. For users rehosted to SQL, when importing products into an existing product database, the automatic backup of the existing data will be skipped if the product database has more than 150,000 records. Unfortunately, when a product database table contains this many records, it takes a long time to export all the data out, and the usual method of returning all records and then writing them all out causes "out of memory" issues. As a reminder, this automatic backup is not a replacement for proper full SQL database backups, but rather an extra resource in case accidental changes are applied to a product database. Normally, the backup is a tab delimited text file backup of the database and will be saved to a file with the same base name as the product database SQL table name like "Products_OurProducts" and will have a .bxx file extension. [Service Release: 4.06]

 9. Under the Tools->My Preferences menu, When pasting your password into the Change password box (versus typing it in) would receive error that your password was not valid. Also if you tab back into a password box that has data in it, it will be auto-selected. [Service Release: 4.06]

 15. For QuickBooks Online Users, the available Tax Rate list would be blank in some cases when using a non-period decimal separator such as a comma. [Service Release: 4.06]

 16. For SYNNEX users, when requesting Real-time Pricing and Availability, an error 173 could be returned. TLS 1.2 will now be used when making XML calls to SYNNEX. [Service Release: 4.06]

 19. For ConnectWise Manage users, when QuoteWerks was creating a Contact in ConnectWise and the ConnectWise Manage field used for "Mobile Phone" could not be determined, the contact creation would fail. If there is not a Communication Type in ConnectWise Manage as a "phone type" named "Cell" or "Mobile", the mobile field filled out in QuoteWerks will not be sent to ConnectWise Manage when creating a new contact.
