We are hoping to create something as follows - anyone have any experience doing this and want to offer any insight? We are planning to create this soon:
We want to create a script that runs when an activity is saved in Outlook. Once save is clicked, the user is prompted to select what the activity "type" is from our pick list in salesforce.com. Currently, all synced events (meetings) or tasks have Type come across as blank (-). This is typically a required field and very critical as managers use this to keep track of how productive users are. Currently, a user must go back in to any synced event, and EDIT the activity and change the type from "-" to whatever the activity really was. It's a bit time consuming and this would be helpful to have.
Thanks for your feedback,

I just setup the gmaps sforce object and am having severe performance issues. It seems to take forever to post data and has on every occasion frozen my browser up. I have also yet to get any data posted into the map however I have received no error messages. Is anyone having the same or similar issues? Also if possible can someone post the latest code for the sforce object? I think the version on the sforce site is bugged.
I'm trying to implement the sample Google Maps S-Control, and not having much luck.
I'm about ready to abandon the idea, but thought I'd check for some assistance first.
I'm referring to the sample s-Control which does not require your own server, and is described at:
I've followed the proscribed steps of:
> Adding two custom fields to Account, Contact, and Lead
> Building the sControl from the sample code
> Creating a Web tab
> Configuring the browser to allow "Access data sources across domains"
When I open the page, I get:
> Pop-up message:
"The Google Maps API key used on this web site was registered for a different web site. You can generate a new key for this web site at http://www.google.com/apis/maps"
> Errors displaying the page:
"Line 721, char 2, Error: 'GIcon' is undefined, Code 0
Line 736, char 1, Error: 'GMap' is undefined, Code 0
> The dialogs (e.g. picking criteria and searching) don'e function.
I tried the api page mentioned in the message but, if I'm reading this right, it appears that I'd need to apply for an api key for one of the salesforce.com urls?
Any thoughts gratefully accepted.
Updated the first link, and removed links which are just text.
