This page will guide you through configuration and basic use of the Level365 CRM Connect ConnectWise Add-in. It is expected that you are already familiar with the Address Book, Call History and Preview window, and the basic concepts of integration and screen popping using the Add-ins.
ConnectWise and the database used to store your contact data should already be installed and working normally before proceeding with this integration.
Level365 CRM Connect must also be installed already with the initial configuration completed.
You will need to make sure that the short date setting in your Region and Language Settings screen is set to 4 digits for the year. If this is not done, it will cause problems later. This can be set at: Control Panel > Date and Time > Set the Date and Time > Change Date and Time > Change Calendar Setting.
