I use this on my mac and my iPhone. I am a real estate agent that specializes in apartment locating. I deal with tons of people and this has been great with keeping my life organized!! The “Logs” function is great because I am able to keep track of our communication in an easy platform that i’m able to access on my computer or phone. With hundreds of different people in rotation i’m able to keep a system of follow up and remember what’s going on with each customer. The “To-do” section is great of course because i’m able to sync reminders with my calendar in one platform and easily view upcoming events with specific customers. It’s great to keep orginized notes, groups, and contact info as well. My only develeper issue so far has been with syncing though that has been fixed and when I’ve had a user error the support staff has been fast, friendly, and helpful.

An amazing tool…takes some getting used to

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.
