  1. 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.

  3. 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.

    We are sorry and are working on bringing it back as soon as possible. With the old implementation we had some issues with loading a lot of deals and contacts, so we had to make the change to improve performance.

  4. Allow multi-select of contacts and then allow setting all selected contacts to Shared status

    There should be the capacity to select multiple contacts in the OCM interface in Outlook 2016, and then change certain settings on all selected contacts - but most importantly their shared status.

    Often, smaller companies all share the contacts and deals they are working on. When someone joins the OCM and brings their contacts in, not being able to share them all, or a specific subset with one or few clicks, is a major barrier to getting on board with the software.

  6. CRM tools need to include company name.

    When I import contacts to Customer Manager from the Outlook contacts list, "company" is not included. The field is blank in Customer Manager, even for contacts where company was input in the outlook contacts list or inbox. Company name is a key piece of info for a CRM tool to track, and Customer Manager should include it when provided. It should also update dynamically back and forth as changes are made in the Outlook customer list and/or Customer Manager.

  8. Not sure why the "shared with" category is showing "Private" when all of my business contacts are shared. Can that be corrected?

  10. Scrolling list of companies is slow

    I have about 300 companies in my list and scrolling through the list of companies in the Outlook client is painfully slow. This needs to be improved.

    We are currently working on a fix for this. As a workaround: remove the license in the admin center and then delete the app in the user’s Addin’s view. If you want to disable it for a few users, please remove the licenses and contact support. you can reenable, by adding the license again and then the app will be installed within the next 24 hours.

    In regards to only seeing 14 contacts – we are working on a fix, it should be available by Monday September 18th.

    Search on name should also be available by then.

  13. Share contacts with Microsoft Bookings

    I've recently started using Microsoft Bookings for my business. It would be great if there could be syncing of contacts/companies between the two.

  15. Column Filtering and drop-down menus

    As a database it is useful to be able to filter the data you input. It is currently possible to filter for the pre-determined columns, but not for user created columns. In addition for user created columns it would be useful (similar to some of the pre-defined columns) to be able to select a drop-down menu and pre-define the choices of text entry.

  16. Make it more reliable.

    Many times it fails, or pops up that it is not available yet to me (even though I was using it earlier in the day). Also, make things autosave so you don't accidentially navigate away.

  18. Could there be a global per tenant option to disable OCM?

    It would be really nice if OCM could be disabled per tenant instead of having to powershell it away similar to the snippet below I just did:

    create temporary AccountSkuId to apply to all O365 BP users

    $x = New-MsolLicenseOptions -AccountSkuId "domain:O365BUSINESSPREMIUM" -DisabledPlans "PROJECTWORKMANAGEMENT", "O365SBRelationship_Management"

    find all licensed users that have O365 BP and apply the new profile

    Get-MsolUser -all | Where-Object {$.isLicensed -eq "True" -and $.Licenses.AccountSKUid -eq "domain:O365BUSINESSPREMIUM" } | Set-MsolUserLicense -LicenseOptions $x

    verify

    (Get-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName someone@somewhere).Licenses.ServiceStatus

    We currently have a bug. You can remove/ disable the OCM license from the admin center, which currently doesnt remove the add-ins from the users. We are working on fixing this. In the meantime you can work with support by disabling the license and then send us the list of users you disabled it for, so we can make sure the app is disabled. hope that helps.

  19. Is there a developer API?

    Is there an API for developers? If not is it in the works?
