if you have been using CRM 2011 you will have soon got quite annoyed with the massive getting started panel taking up half the screen, I view it as CRM’s version of the paperclip, everytime I logged in it was like the paperclip popping up and saying “it looks like you are writing a letter”.
It also looks a bit embarrassing when you are showing some work to someone with this huge getting started panel popping up making you like a novice.
In the end I got so annoyed I decided I was going to get rid of it. Not to mention it didn’t really have anything of use in it.
Removing it for yourself
Go to File – Options – General Tab and uncheck the box for “Show Get Started panes on all lists”
Remove the Get Started Panel for everyone
You have to have System Administrator priviledges.
Settings – Administration – System Settings – General Tab and mark off “No” for the first question of “Show Get Started panes on all lists for all users”
I’m not going to put a picture because if you are System Administrator you should know your way around the Settings/Administration sections by now. I know I had to go into the System Settings to change the date format settings to UK.
