An amazing tool…takes some getting used to

New to iPhone6012

I looked for a tool that would help me manage the many relationships that I have proactively and seamlessly and chose this product after painstaking research. It took me some time to understand how powerful it is and how to use it. To my surprise, the more I learn about it, the better it meets my needs. Imagine that! It has taken me some time to trust the program to do what I wanted it to do and when I had questions or when something didn’t work as expected (technical or ‘operator error’), the support team resolved the problem for me in a very reasonable timeframe. As I continue to learn how to fully use the app as it was designed to be used, my effectiveness is going to increase dramatically. Highly recommend the app and highly recommend the commitment to fully understand what it can do for you.

Potential best in class hampered by continued sync/data loss


CJournal could be best in its small class, but design of the app to “import” contacts vs directly mirror specific groups of iOS/macOS Contacts is a critical design flaw that leaves multiple devices continually fighting over if and which device has the correct contacts. This remains an issue over multiple years/version of the product and results in significant duplication of contact records and data loss when one tries to de-dupe and consequently wipes out what is the only version of that duplicated contact on another device.

That said, CJournal has great potential to address the desync issue by simply offering to directly mirror Contact groups down the line. Features like custom fields allow it to function as a mini database and offer potential for more robust searching/cross-referencing than currently offered.

While other Mac CRM’s like Daylite offer more advanced email integration/tagging across devices, CJournal fits a critical niche in servicing small business, contractors, or anyone who wants to dip their toe in the CRM market without giving up the contacts lists they have already built up in their address book.

Now let’s just get that sync issue resolved once and for all and get this app its blue ribbon.

Works great


This program is amazing. I am in wholesale lumber trading, and it works excellent for this. I can easily keep track of my contacts, prospects, lumber mills, shippng agents. I love the feature that allows me to start a call on my macbook and complete it on my iPhone. This allows me to make the call and use my computer to make the log simultaniously. I am very pleased at their response time when I have asked questions about certain features.

Great CRM and totally convenient with the one time pricing. I would not have been so into this program if it costs nearly as much as the other CRM’s that are available.
