Zoho CRM API V1 to V2 Upgrade and V1 Function deprecation 31/12/2019

Zoho Corporation has upgraded a number of key platform basics and standard programming functions over the past 2 years.

Although there have been a number of Direct to End User Customer informational messages from Zoho Corp about the need to make the required changes over the last few months, a (large?) number of Zoho CRM Customers have apparently not taken the steps to upgrade the Custom Functions and the Administrator Users are now seeing warning and error messages when navigating to the “Configure Settings” Pages. Also, many customers that have taken steps to upgrade are still seeing the same error warnings:

ZCRM Administrator Login API V1 Warning

Obviously these warnings of DATA LOSS from 1/1/2020 are extremely worrying and need to be checked, although In certain circumstances the warning messages are incorrect, as the automated code checking utilities that generate the warnings are also checking commented out and therefore unused code and also functions which are not actually being used.

We have done a lot of update and remedial work over the past 2 years to migrate Little Blue Zoho customers to the latest API versions, hence some of the knowledge detailed above and are expecting their transitions past the final deprecation date of 1/1/2020 to be uneventful. However if you are a Zoho CRM User and not a current Little Blue customer and are either worried about the upcoming deprecation date of 1/1/2020 or are seeing the DATA LOSS warning banners please do reach out sooner rather than later at:

Expert aPaaS Consultants

aPaaS???!! application Platform as a Service is simply cloud based technology speak for software application development tools that live in the cloud, which means:

  • You don’t need to worry about, or source, piles of servers, network cables, air conditioning units, backup devices, uninterruptible power supplies AND  the legions of people to mind them all
  • You pay a licence fee, open the browser and off you go
  • The software is available immediately, so we’re straight into the want/think/do/have/use cycle of business analysis, design, build (configure?) and implement
  • The focus  in the programme can therefore be on the requirements, the  why rather than the how

Before we do anything or make any recommendations we take the time to listen and understand the issues facing your business. Be it a lack of communication, pipeline visibility, disjointed customer service or disputes over sales, we can help.

We are experts in the culture and translation of wishes and needs to practical and useful business tools and with years of experience, our consultants and developers are perfectly placed to guide your through the world of CRM with as much or as little assistance as you need.
