More Minds Are Better Than One

When you put your mind to it, you can do a lot. When you put 100s of minds to it, the expansion of shared knowledge is breath taking!

90 Minds is an organization of ERP consultants and resellers with a shared goal…success. We collaborate every day to find answers, recommendations and help each other succeed. Our members are from firms’ small to large and together we represent hundreds if not thousands of years of experience. Nowhere else can you find the help, support and commitment to succeed every day, every hour, we are never closed.

When individual members have tough technical questions – or they just need a second opinion – they post a message to the group. Weekdays. Weeknights. Weekends. Holidays. Our 90 Minds discussions carry on virtually 24 x 7.

When members find a technical solution that might be helpful to others we provide a way to quickly share that information in real time. The benefit? Consultants find faster solutions to issues and feel more confident when they install upgrades or tackle problems. We help deliver a greatly improved customer experience from a shared depth of knowledge.

Upon acceptance, you join an existing group with highly active members sharing technical information about Sage 100, Sage 300, Sage CRM, Acumatica, Business tips and more.

Sage Partner Portal: Cheat Sheet

Beginning February 27, 2012 Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 — soon to be Sage 100 ERP — partners and customers have their first exposure to Sage’s new partner portal.

Listed below are some quick tips that we’ve found which may enable you to gain better access to the site information. These tips are unofficial and based on the experiences of our members and do not reflect the advice of Sage or SAP or any other entity affiliated with the portal.

 

Logging Into Sage Partner and Customer Portal: URLS

Tip: Internet Explorer 7 is the only supported browser. Some versions of IE  above version 7 can be set to run in a special IE 7 compatibility mode.  At present the partner portal appears to be working with Google Chrome 17. The customer portal does not appear compatible with Chrome since an error message appears even trying to access the customer login using Google Chrome.

Login to the Partner Portal — http://partners.sagenorthamerica.com/

Login to the Customer Portal – https://customers.sagenorthamerica.com/

 

Searching For Customers (Partner Specific)

1. Use the ” * ” symbol to find all of your customers. If you search by customer name it appears that you must enter in an exact match to  the name or no results are returned.

2. If your location has more than 100 customers however you can only view 100 customers.

Go to the Account Management Tab and in My Customers click on settings link in the “Specify Maximum Number of Search Results” field you can change the amount from 100 to the amount you would care to see and then click Apply to capture the change. (Thanks Kayley – DSD Business Systems)

 Sage Knowledgebase Tips

It is unknown whether all the portions of the KB will require a login or whether some links (such as product updates) will still be freely available.

Observed Limitations

The initial release of the KB appears to have issues segregating results by product lines. Some searches that are limited to one product appear to pull in data from another product line.

Some searches return no results in the current KB while a similar search in the legacy KB (access here) returns multiple results.

Possibly Open Links (Subject To Change)
