The Auto vCard package was updated on the AppExchange. If you are using Auto vCard in your org, it is recommended that you uninstall the existing package and install the new one. The changes in the new version are:
- Custom Button: Rather than being a custom link, the new package uses a custom button. This looks much more professional and is more noticeable for users.
- Managed Package: The package was updated to be a “managed package”. This will allow future upgrades to be installed over the existing package and allow me to know who is running the package so I can better communicate future updates.
The functional changes in this version are minor. However, I plan on making changes over the next few months that will be much easier on you if you have a managed package installed. These changes include moving the scripts to a new URL and rewriting the logic so that the annoying window doesn’t pop up and force you to close it after every vCard you run. Having it be a managed package will let me communicate with you directly when it comes time to communicate those changes.
Salesforce recently told me that the Auto vCard package has 188 active customer installs and is one of the most installed partner applications on the AppExchange. That’s good news! The bad news is me not knowing who those Orgs are and not being able to communicate with you when the future changes take effect. That’s why it is recommended that you uninstall the existing package and install the new one.
