  3. Adding a new contact to a company should save it to the company without having to click save

    When you add a new contact to a company the interface is very clunky. You add the contact, and then you want to start editing it but if you don't click save, you will get a modal saying you are going to loose your changes. Automatically save the contact to the company and then take me to the editable details of the contact.

  6. Disable reading pane requirement to use OCM

    To use OCM in the inbox view the reading pane must be on. I do not like the reading pane and consider it to be a security risk, thus I am not using OCM. I see no reason for this requirement, please remove the requirement that the reading pane must be enabled to use OCM

  9. Review integrity of TASK data

    I've been working extensively with TASKS and trying to link them to contacts or deals and have had a lot of challenges with changes being populated between the TASK area of Outlook and the same TASK that is tagged to a record in OCM. Dates that are changed in one area do not consistently change in the other area. The same is true with changes in the subject line and even when completing... if done in OCM the TASK stays open in the TASKS area, and vice versa.

  10. Follow-up reminder time should not default to midnight

    The time for follow-up times of tasks defaults to midnight. I'll never do a follow-up at that time. How about it defaults to 8:00 am or 10:00 am?

  14. Adding links to Files is broken

    when I click on a link I add to files, I get the always soulcrushing and mind numbing "you will need a new app to open this about" and then presents me with the mega time sink of going to the store to find it - in this case, when I have not one but 2 microsoft browsers on my pc :). What may be helpful to developers if they hopefully take action on this is the link is actually stored correction in sharpoint but the link that is formed on the OCM form has ^ where . should be

  19. Make it easier to edit deal details. The View Details link is hard to find.

    To the user, it seems impossible to edit deal details--including but not limited to the status. The interface is very difficult to use.
