This is to confirm that the Align 19R3.1 sandbox upgrade (193.1.1) has been delivered to sandbox orgs on October 11th, 2019.
Production upgrades are scheduled for Friday evening, October 18th, 2019, US Pacific time.
All Veeva CRM customers must migrate to TM2.0 before June 2020. Align introduces functionality to assist in the migration process. The Align capability can be used after TM2.0 is enabled in the corresponding CRM org. It will be possible to enable TM2.0 in Veeva CRM after the CRM 19R3 release.
What's new in 19R3.1
Administrators can create modeling footprints to conveniently group and manage geographies when assigning geographies to territories.
Administrators can specify the start and end date of a geography’s assignment to a footprint. This enables more flexibility when managing footprints as geographies can be freely added and removed from a footprint without deleting the footprint_geography__aln record.
CRM Integration Enhancements
Align enables admins to map custom fields between Align and Veeva CRM, enabling more versatile connections between the two systems.
This feature requires that the corresponding Veeva CRM org has successfully migrated to Territory Management 2.0 (Available in the CRM 19R3 release).
Rules Engine Enhancements
Admins can use Date Operators to specify that results must be either more than or less than a certain number of days in order for a result to match the query. This enables more versatile rules that match based on a relative timeframe (for example, matching all accounts visited in the last 90 days) rather than based on an exact date that must be manually updated each time the rule is run.
