  1. Add support for Office 365 E3 and E5 tenants (as well as E1 and E2)

    We have a team called government and public policy that would like to use this feature to track communication with certain important contacts. Please make this feature available for our Enterprise E3 tenant.

  2. Make Outlook Customer Manager available in Outlook Online (Outlook Web Acess)

    With Office 365 Online apps and Dynamics 365 etc. It would make sense to make Outlook Customer Manager also available for Outlook Online. For example like a slide in form the right like Skype or Delve info.

  3. Add sub-tasks

    Tasks linked to customer contacts are good, but the ability to have tasks AND subtasks would be great.

    Our manufacturing company frequently works with customers on multiple projects that run in parallel. Each project has one to two dozen discreet tasks associated with it. Each task would represent a project overall. Linked sub-tasks would represent what needed to be accomplished on each project.

    We don't need the complexity of MS Project but we need more than one level task lists (or the one level task list with check boxes in the Office 365 Planner).

    I discussed this issue 20 years…

  6. Make Outlook Customer Manager available also offline

    Customer data are in particular useful directly before a customer is visited. A typical situation is the flight to a customer. To look up data during the flight Outlook Customer Manager needs to be available also offline.

  7. Ability to set default value to YES for sharing contacts and deals

    When using outlook customer manager and adding in contacts businesses or deals the default value to share those is set to No. I want to be able to have that default value set to yes since we want to be able to share contacts and deals pretty much every time by default.

  9. Automatically share the full time line of shared contacts.

    My colleagues need to see the last time someone was in contact with our contacts and see the content of the communication. The sharing of time line information (mail, calls, notes etc) is essential for this product.

  10. Shared contacts directly from Outlook

    Please make sure contacts can be shared with everyone using Customer Manager from Outlook as well as via API-access for other systems. Global Address Books doesn't work well for SMBs.

  11. Syncronize with local Outlook contacts

    It is nessesary to have the Business contacts that are shared with all available in a seperated contact Folder under the normal inbox contacts or integrated in this. If not it is not posible to have the contacts on mobile phone to see who is caling me. Another thing is i want to open an email and type the name of an contact from ocm.

  14. Sort and change columns order on deals list

    Last upgrade, we lost the sort feature on Deals lists as well as moving or changing the columns order. That was an excellent feature to follow deals.

  15. LinkedIn integration

    Still waiting to get access to Customer Manager on First Release, but already have an idea. Just had a new business lead come in via LinkedIn message so being able to track that would be essential.

  16. Add Job Title field in contacts

    Each contact needs to have a job title - when you import contacts it lets you map to the field, but you can't see it anywhere.

  19. Mobile apps for Windows Phone

    You state the mobile app is available on ios only. Maybe you could see if you could create an app for Windows phones! Some people (I know only a few) use Windows phones and it may come in handy for people who actually commit to the windows platform.

  20. Please can you include outgoing emails in the contact record, at present the contact record only has incoming emails

    Include the outgoing and incoming emails for a contact in the contact level OCM record. At present only the incoming emails are included in the contact record - you have to go to the company record to see connected outgoing emails. Of course a company record could have many contact associated with it, so having outgoing emails only in this view makes little sense to me.
