Register to Windows Service
If the number of records is more than 9K, then user needs to register to Windows service in order to create multiple territories. With more than 9K records plotted on the map when user tries to create multiple territories then the below message will be shown and these records will be processed by Windows Service. When the user clicks on ‘Confirm’ then it will create the territory records with the status ‘Process by WS’ and Windows Service will process these territories by distributing the records to create the specified number of balanced territories based on the number of records.
Windows service runs at the interval that user will set. For example, user can set it for every 1 hour. When windows service runs and finds territories with the status ‘Process by WS’ then it will process them one by one. It takes one territory and performs the logic and distributes the records properly to create the respective number of territories and while updating these territories it changes the status of those territories to draft. User can plot this draft territory and create the respective territories into the CRM.
To install Windows Service, user can go to the ‘Batch processing tool’.
