Scenario Overview

In this scenario the business requirement is that when a user opens an Account record we need to check if the Send Marketing materials field has been set to 'Yes' & if so start a dialog process so the user can send out the marketing materials.

North52 Decision Suite Solution

The North52 Decision Suite solution works like this,

  • The formula executes in the  OnLoad() event of the form 
  • It checks to see if we should start the dialog process
  • If so it starts the process
