  1. Within OCM have levels of permissions for access rights.

    Within OCM - be able to permit levels of permission for users. At the minute it is either private or public. Even better would be to have OCM within existing groups of office users, so therefore only certain users can see workflow for sales/projects etc.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. Mass delete of Companies and other bulk data - Data Reset or Clean Sweep Option

    Mass Delete of Companies and other bulk data - Reset Option. I've been working with OCM for about a week and believed I was ready to import 2100 companies from another CRM. Unfortunately, I did not get the new list columns right and need to clear all current companies but there's no option I'm aware of to do so.

  9. Missed Call Search

    Please make searching OCM Contact phone #'s easier and consistent. If my business misses a phone call and wants to look that number up in our OCM Contacts OCM won't display all phone numbers. Right now I can search for my own cell # that I have under a Contact and it doesn't come up.

  10. 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.

  11. One contact with multiple deals isolate emails

    I have a contact that I work with on multiple deals, I would like to isolate each email based on its appropriate deal. I would also like to ensure that emails that are not related to any specific deal are not shown on any deal.

  13. Keep exact time of Auto phone log after editing subject of phone call

    When logged calls are edited, the exact time of the call is lost and you can only choose from 30 minute intervals. The time defaults to 12 AM and the exact time of call is lost.

  14. Assign a deal after it has been created

    It would be great if a task could be created by a user and then assigned to a different user.

    e.g. A telesales creates a deal and then assigns it to an external sales rep.

  15. 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.

  16. Most of the time, data written in forms are not implemented when saved.

    When creating customer data is synced so slow that when saved, most of the details are not included. After editing, new data are either not synced or is synced but really it is not synced. In practice, this makes it difficult to work in Outlook, as the addon is most of the time just not implementing anything

  18. duplicates

    When loading business contacts (over 200) it has duplicated most of them. And to make matters worse you cannot delete more than one at a time. This has cost me hours and frustrated me to no end. I cant use this software because it is so bug filled I am scared that whatever I put into it may get lost or worse. Please fix ASAP.

  20. Sync Business Center contacts

    The Business Center apps contacts tab has a field to show whether a contact is a customer or a lead - this information seems not to be available anywhere in OCM, which makes using Business Center with OCM pretty much pointless. Surely, the fields should be synced.
