On November 16, we had our GoldMine User Group Meeting, where we covered key enhancements to the new GoldMine Premium 2018.1, due to be released in early December 2017.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this meeting! Below is the video recording of the meeting, general notes as well as the questions & answers.
Still have more questions about GoldMine? Feel free to reach out to our team here, and we’ll be happy to answer!
GoldMine’s Training Center is divided into four different sections:
What you need to do is create a Constant Contact ID and account. Then, go to Campaigns, click on the Constant Contact campaign, and log in with your credentials.
If you don’t already have an account, you can sign up directly from within GoldMine. Also, new accounts get access to a free campaign of 5,000 emails, and it can all be done without leaving GoldMine.
Since Constant Contact has many customers, they don’t store campaign analytics and results on their servers, they archive the data and purge it after six months. The benefit of using GoldMine with Constant Contact is that GoldMine downloads the information, and stores it against the contact record permanently, and you will be able to view your complete history of Constant Contact campaigns. That's something you can't do natively in Constant Contact.
These are per-user settings. The master user can set them for those users, or the user can go in and make those changes.
It is included. With GoldMine, you have two options of accessing data: the Windows client, which is the more traditional GoldMine Premium interface that most of our existing users are familiar with, and the one we recommend for configuration. There’s also the GoldMine Web interface, which is included at no charge. All licensing with GoldMine is concurrent, so you will not be tied to either interface.
If you do want a more complex web interface for GoldMine where you need to do reporting and advanced searching, you also have the wMobile product from W-Systems.
Also, these are installed On-Premise, within your environment, making it very cost-effective since you aren’t paying for a monthly subscription.
With wMobile, you get access to desktop or mobile interfaces, so you have multiple options to view and access data.
Within GoldMine 2018.1, there is a new, per user, setting. You can go to Settings in GoldMine Web as a user, and hide certain elements. However, Cases and Opportunities can’t be disabled as of now. That is a requested feature, and it will be coming soon.
You can rearrange or hide Opportunities, Cases, Links, Notes, etc. for contacts, but on the main heading screen, you can't yet.
Absolutely. When you create a new field from GoldMine Web, all you must do is create it in GoldMine Premium, and it will be displayed when using the web interface as well. You can also specify where to view it, making it very useful, security-wise. For example, you want a group of fields only available for your customer service department, but your sales team gets a different subset of fields. GoldMine Web is that it follows the security that is set up and configured in the GoldMine Premium Windows interface.
