Updating an add-on is quick and easy! Simply follow these 5 steps:
1.)Grab the latest solution .zip file from the respective PowerPack web page
2.)Log into CRM and navigate to Settings > Solutions
3.)Click Import and walk through the import steps. Remember to select the options to Overwrite Customizations and activate and processes upon re-import. If presented with the option to “Stage for update”, leave the checkbox un-checked.
Note: Choosing to Overwrite Customizations will only overwrite any back-end plugins that may have been updated since the previous version was installed.
4.)Once the import has completed navigate back to the solutions list and double click on the PowerPack you just imported to open the configuration. Here you may be asked to clean up the components of the solution. If prompted, select ok.
5.)Once the clean-up has completed, select Submit to re-sync your registration with the PowerObjects registration system and you are done!
