Sage CRM 2019 R1

Latest Release Announced by DB Computer Solutions

On February 4, 2019, we announced the latest release of Sage CRM, version 2019 R1. This latest development comes with major enhancements, enabling your business to better harness organisational resources. New features / enhancements include:


View all your tasks and appointments in the calendar. Each Sage CRM user can view a complete list of tasks and appointments in My CRM | Calendar List. By default, the list isn't filtered and shows all tasks and appointments from the moment when the user was created in Sage CRM.

Document Drop

Using Document Drop on custom entities, users accessing Sage CRM with Microsoft Internet Explorer can now use the ActiveX Document Drop plugin to attach documents to custom entity records.

Email and SMS

File emails with an empty To or From field. Now users can use the Outlook Plugin to file emails where To and/or From field is empty. Previously an error occurred when a user tried to file such an email.

Escalation Rules

Descriptive values in the Updated By field. When an escalation rule updates a record, the Updated By field now shows a descriptive value indicating that the update was performed by the Escalation Service. Previously in this scenario the Updated By field included a non-informative value (for example, -1 or -2).

Quick Find

Quick Find cache and index improvements. Quick Find has been optimized for a scenario where a system administrator adds more entities to the Quick Find index. Now Quick Find immediately includes the newly-added entities in the search index and returns them in search results. Previously Quick Find could return incomplete search results in the described scenario.


Increased security for user passwords. Sage CRM 2019 R1 uses the bcrypt algorithm to generate hashes for user passwords. Bcrypt adds a salt (a random string of characters) to each password hash before storing it in the database.
