New in Veeva CRM 18R3

The following changes are available to all licensed users of a given product. Instructions to configure these options are discussed in each topic and in the Veeva CRM product documentation.

Windows App

The Windows Tablet application now displays Veeva CRM 18R3 next to the icon. This title is being changed as the 18R3 version of the application is the last classic version before the new Sunrise UI release in 19R1. The 19R1 version will have the traditional Veeva CRM title.

Online Documentation

Note Styles

We updated the note styles in the online documentation to represent the content contained in the notes. There are now three levels of notes:

  • Note (Blue) - provides additional information
  • Caution (Yellow) - An adverse effect may occur, for example a misconfiguration
  • Warning (Red) - A critical error may occur, for example, you may lose data

Feedback

Each topic in the CRM Online Help now displays a Feedback button in the bottom left corner of the page.

Select the Feedback button, enter your email address and feedback, then select Submit. The documentation team receives an email containing the link to the page from which you selected the Feedback button. The email also contains the email address entered for future follow-up.

Advanced Searching in the Online Help

The CRM Online Help site now supports advanced search settings to enable users to quickly locate a relevant topic.

Advanced searching consists of two components:

  • Filtering - Select the Filter icon to limit the list of search results to only display topics belonging to the selected category. Only one filter may be selected at a time.
  • Exact Search - Select the Exact Search check box to limit the list of search results to only display topics containing the exact term. For example, if the search term is --cat and exact search is enabled, the search results only display topics with words containing exactly --cat. If exact search is not enabled, the search results also include all topics with words that contain cat (category, catalog, etc).

For example, Alice, an administrator at VerteoBiopharma wants to learn more about the --cat section signal. She is unsure which topic to read but knows the section signal is a part of Call Reporting. She enables an exact search for --cat and limits the search results to only display Call Reporting topics. The search returns two results, allowing the administrator to quickly locate the correct topic.
