Add an Appointment option not working
I just bought the upgrade and downloaded it this morning (I hate to buy an upgrade, if you own the software, one would think the developer would appreciate you using their software and keep you up-to-date without charging).
The first new option I noticed was "Add an Appointment" with the new hold you contact name down for the options. When I tried this, it would not save. The message was <Cannot Save Event - Alarms cannot be changed>. I didn't change anything, I just tried to add the appointment, I try to change the alarms to see if that made a difference, but it did not.
The other option I noticed was the Merge Duplicates option. So I gave this a try and it wanted to merge to contacts with the same name, but obvious different companies. I have over 3K of contacts and yes you are correct a lot have the same name i.e. John Smith, but are obviously with different companies. There is a work around for this, but be careful and don't assume the Merge is merging the same contacts for you.
These are the two things I found within 15 mins of checking out my chargeable upgrade. I will post more as I find them or change my rating and comments, if they get corrected.
Not a good start to a chargeable upgrade...
Good Upgrade but left previous features out
I'm glad to have upgraded to the newer version of ContactsXL 2017, there is one feature that kept me from using the previous version that now is posible in this version (This is finding Contacts through the Search Field with first name Initial and last name)
But now there are a couple of features that were left out as of previous versions
1- URL link in Contacts list does not work
2- Smart Group now does not have the option to search the whole "Card" in the rules
*** Update: received feedback from developer and should be fixed with futures updates
Good overall App!
A must have!
Having this app on my phone helps me out tremendously with all of my contacts and I have plenty of them.
Thank you for the simplicity and all the options in this app. I am so grateful for third-party apps like this that maximizes the power of the contact!
