Contact Management

A contact manager in its most basic form is a software program that enables users to easily store and find contact information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers. Sophisticated contact managers provide calendar sharing features and allow several people in a company to access the same database. Some contact management systems have evolved into customer relationship management (CRM) systems to analyze and plan for an organization’s interaction with current and future customers.

I am a community developer and am trying to find a contact manager that displays a map marking boundaries of different neighborhoods as well as a list of contacts grouped together by which neighborhood they live in. Any ideas?

I had some problems with Outlook and backups which resulted in multiple copies of various .pst files.
When I opened Outlook, a previously-existing folder in My Contacts was there.
But, when I clicked on it, it went away and has not returned.
So, I imagine that the data is in there somewhere.
How to get it back?

At the same time, the backups failed - so they are of limited help.

I have a feeling this is really easy for somone who knows code. Attached is the dialog box I am using. The end result is I want it to say:

Hello my first name is (Insert First name) and my last name is (insert last name)

First name is pulled with ${Contacts.First.Name} and Last name is pulled with ${Contacts.Last.Name}

Any idea what I put in the Formula Expression to make this work? It currently is working with the given formula. The result is just the first name.

Dear EE,

We are a small financial services entity that has 40,000 members who communicate with us across multiple channels.

I've been tasked with researching innovative, easy to interact with delivery channels that will provide great member fulfillment at 1st contact. It should work across all the channels (email, web, mobile, telephone, face-to-face, chat, text, etc).

Could you point me in the right direction to begin my research? What solutions do you hear about the most?

Hello Everyone. I have a Samsung Captivate Glide i927 (AT&T). It runs stock ICS 4.0.4

My Google account isn't syncing properly. My contacts, calendar, Keep notes  are unable to sync. I keep getting an error that states that 'Sync is having problems.'  I also can't connect to the Google account from certain apps like WhatsApp & SwiftKey keyboard and as a result, I can neither back my chats to Google Drive nor download my customs words for the SwiftKey keyboard app. I can however use the Google Drive app normally. The Play Store also works properly.

I have done everything that I can think of (& read online).  They are:

1. Deleting the Google Play Services cache.

2. Emptied the phone's cache. I also formatted it & the Dalvik cache in CWM.

3. Removed my Google account from the phone. Restarted & added the Google account.

4. Reset the phone to factory settings.

5. Re-flashed the  official/stock 4.0.4 ROM by using Odin.

6. I have added a hash prefix to the localhost IP address in the hosts file in the 'etc' folder. I have also deleted it.

Syncing still doesn't work for those services. I am at my wit's end. Please can anyone suggest a solution?

Thanks.

I am trying to help a small non-profit choose and implement/integrate a CRM.  They have a custom application, written in MSAccess, that handles all their business.  The board-of-directors wants to move the donors into a more modern, perhaps more powerful, CRM.

They need to be able to track donations, do strategic queries, and support both email and snail mail activities.

In addition to my own search results, I wondered if any of you might have some recommendations.

We are running AD in a Win2012R2. We have an OU where we keep all  contacts. I have an excel sheet xlsx that contains the following columns: Department, Description, Display Name, Emails address, First Name, Job Tittle, Last Name, and Telephone Number.
This excel sheet contains updated information for some contacts, New contacts to be added, and current contact that information has not changed.  My question is:
what is the easy way to import this excel sheet into my AD that will updates contact info, create new contacts, and leave as it is some contact information that has not changed.
I have no issue deleting the OU contacts and simple add the new spread sheet.
Please advise what it easy. I appreciate any comments. In addition the list I have it is about 26,000 contacts. I do not want to kill my AD. Should I do it in part? (Please advise)

I purchased a Pixel phone and added my Gmail account.  The phone automatically synced my contacts.  I don't want the Gmail, Google contacts.  I want to transfer my iPhone contacts because that's an up to date version of my contacts I wish to have in my phone.  I have since deleted contacts in Gmail and disabled auto add of contacts. However, the contacts sync feature under settings of the Pixel failed to update accordingly even when turning off/on the sync feature.  The contacts contain a recent sync time but same old lousy contacts.  Can anyone fill me in on why the contacts auto populate crap contacts?  How do I prevent those contacts from populating?

Hi,

I received this message from my customer and it is below:

"Just a query – I am unable to make up Group/Distribution lists on my email.  I have gotten my friend, Len, to email me his list from his Outlook to me – is there a way I can transfer/save this “Distribution” list straight onto my Outlook?  You know, save me manually doing it?"

Can someone advise?

Thank you

Almost we tried a plenty of CRM systems for our company. But the result is not much good because one or more requirements are missed or budgets, etc. Then one of our clients recommend ACT CRM, it helps to manage our customers and contacts. But now we're facing some problems in the ACT.

Recently, we upgraded our machine into windows 10. Afterward, ACT not fully supported with windows 10. This issue raised once upgrade finished, still now we stuck with an operating system issue. Then sometimes crashing occurs, any solutions are available in outside. Share your suggestions, thank you.

It does not make sense for my Zoho to associate my customers to accounts. It is Business to Customer not B to B.

Is there a way I can delete the whole account part? It makes no sense to track.

This user has 3 PCs involved in this issue. They are each at a different site.
PC 'A' is running Outlook 2010.
PC's 'B and 'C' are running Outlook 2013.

The issue is with one of the contact groups the user has created. There are 5 people in this group.
The expected behaviour is that once the group is created, it will be visible on all 3 PCs. This does work.

The issue is that, sometimes, when the user is on PC 'B' or PC 'C', the contact group will change. It will be missing people, usually only one will be left. This never happens on PC 'A'.
I took a look at the details of each contact and noticed one had an incorrect email, I fixed that hoping it would stop the issue.

It has occurred once again since that change, so it didn't help.
My first thought is that it has something to do with the different versions of Outlook installed but am not sure what to do or check based on that.

I need to be able to have a shared contact list that I can use as follows:
When I am sending out an email I want to be able to access the entries in this shared contact list by clicking on the "To" field and being able to see that shared contact list among the drop down option under "Address Books".

Currently I can do this in the Outlook client by using Public Folder contact list and right clicking on it, selecting Properties, Outlook Address Book tab and checking the box to "Show this folder as an email Address Book".
The problem is this type of Public folder is not view able from O365 OWA.

Does anyone have any options?

Thank you,

Hello,

I am trying to find a way to edit the fields that are shown in the user contact card in Outlook. Contact Card
I would like to change the field Home to something like Work 2 where the full 10 digit office number of the user can be shown. The Work field is already occupied with the user's internal extension which seems to replicate from the AD account properties in the Telephone Number field under the General tab. Under the Telephones tab, I am entering the 10 digit number in the IP Phone field which is what I would like Exchange to pull from to display the number in the Outlook contact card. AD Account
I have tried making some changes in the Details Templates Editor. but that only seems to allow me to change the appearance of the Outlook address book entries and does not make any changes to the Outlook contact card for users.

I am pretty much at a beginner level when it comes to Exchange, so any help on this matter is greatly appreciated. By the way, my organization is using Exchange 2010.

Thanks,
Mike

All my contacts appear in my iCloud email account.   How do I import them into my regular email account?

We have a customer using Google Apps (the Google Groups portion of it) to run mailing lists. They have about 8 different mailing lists that people subscribe to and unsubscribe themselves from. You can managed them in a hacky way from Google Group web page (as an example, if you edit a contact and save the info, you're now back at the beginning of the list. They now have to go through potentially hundreds of addresses in the list to get back to where they were). The better way would be if these addresses could be synchronized in Outlook. Is there any way to make this happen? So they could see the groups in outlook, open it, and easily manage and manipulate the user information, having it sync back to Google?

Thanks!
