Announcements

Upcoming Updates to Engage Meeting Attendance Tracking

With the 21R2.0 release, Engage Meeting Attendance Tracking will add attendance data to CRM as it becomes available from Zoom, without needing to submit the call report first.

Due to this update, the following additional changes apply:

  • The Call_vod lookup field no longer populates on Remote_Meeting_Attendee_vod records. Instead, the Account_vod field populates if the attendee is an account and joined the meeting via Engage.
  • Two days after the related call is submitted, the processing status is set to Complete
  • Meetings where only the host joined now have a Meeting_Outcome_Status_vod field of Meeting Without Attendees. Remote_Meeting_Attendee_vod records for hosts of these meetings are now created with the following fields left blank:
  • IP_Address_vod
  • Device_vod
  • Network_Type_vod

TLS Minimum Requirements

In order to align with industry best practices for security and data integrity, Veeva is enforcing TLS 1.2 or later for all connections. TLS 1.0 and 1.1 have not been supported in Salesforce or Veeva CRM since September 2019, however, some older versions of Veeva CRM may be using TLS 1.0.

As of 21R2.0 the following unsupported software versions will no longer be able to communicate with Veeva Servers:

  • Veeva CRM Tablet Edition
  • Veeva CRM on Windows 8
  • Veeva CRM on Windows 10 builds prior to 16299 (Fall Creators Update, version 1709)
  • Any Veeva CRM versions prior to the 19R3 release

Salesforce has announced that My Domain will be required in all Salesforce orgs as part of their Winter ’22 release. Salesforce Winter ‘22 will be released starting August 2021 for sandboxes and October 2021 for production orgs. See this Trust post for more information.

Salesforce’s Multi-factor Authentication Requirement for February 2022

Last year, Salesforce announced that beginning February 1, 2022, they will require customers to enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) in order to access their orgs.
