AC Lite Guide
Accelerator Lite Edition
This edition of Accelerator (AC) has no server side install and only requires the AC Lite Client.
A Sage CRM component install is required to allow email attachments be uploaded.
Sage CRM versions supported are 2021 R1 or later
Details on the functionality are detailed here
One key thing is that the "admin" logon account is FREE on every Sage CRM install.
So you can try it out without buying.
To get the software go to our customer portal - Customer 365
and logon or register. You need to be in our Sage CRM system to register so contact us to get set up.
Once you log in you will see a "Downloads" folder.
1. Opens the url (linked above) explaining the features of AC Lite.
2. Download the AC Lite Outlook Client Installation.
This is a wizard and you follow the installation instructions which include closing outlook before you run this.
3. Download the Sage CRM AC Lite component required for email attachments to be saved to be installed via Sage CRM's admin area.
It also exposes the Users table (this is required for paid seats). You can test the Outlook client outlook client without attachments being saved if you prefer to do this before uploading the component. Open Sage CRM and log in as an admin user and install the component. No need for a metadata refresh.
