In the following image New Business represents Transaction Header, whereas Product 1 and Product 2 represent Transaction Lines.


  • You can now click the Reports icon to view various customer specific reports under the Transactions section, which is shown in the following image.

Earlier you would have configured a CS360 section to view all this data. For more information on how to configure Timeline view and Reports in the Transactions section, refer to Configuring Timeline View and Reports in Transactions Section.

Note: Earlier the standard 360 section was not available for LRM 2.0. With this release, the Transactions section will work with LRM 2.0.


2. Enhancement LocationAdministration > LRM

Enhancement Description: When configuring product transactions, you can now generate pre-built reports using the Generate pre-built reports button button. This helps you generate useful reports on Header, Lines, and Customer Products objects. For more information on pre-built reports (out-of-the-box reports), refer to Configuring Timeline View and Reports in Transactions Section.

Note: You will be unable to see this button if any of the pre-built reports already exist.

Enhancement Description: In Sponsor Tracking, if Title, Location, or Company are modified with a new value that has never been available in the past, the new values for Title, Location, and Company are updated. However, no change will appear if the new value for Title, Location, or Company matches past values.  For example, if the current Title is changed from “Name1” to “Name2” and if the title is again modified to reflect “Name1”, “Name1”/NULL will not appear in the Sponsor Tracking card; the change will be ignored.

Note: For Company, we will ignore subsets of a string. For example, if the Company name “ABC Co.” is updated to “ABC Co/ABC/ABC Inc./ABC Inc”, the change will not be reflected in the Sponsor Tracking card.
