I have some questions on BCM with Outlook 2013.

1. Does BCM supports Access Rights Management or privileged Access?

For Example : If we have multiple users sharing a single BCM Database, then if we want to give only readonly access for some users and write only access for some users, is this possible.

2. How many users or contacts does this BCM Oulook 2013 supports?

Our organization have 250 users. Does it supports?

3. Mandatory Fields in a customized form

For Example : If i have 6-7 fields like surname, lastname, description, cost, lead name. In these if i want to make all the fields as mandatory. Is this possible.

4. Calculated Field in the BCM Form

Can we have a calculated Field in BCM Customized form based on the other fields on the form?

1. No. It's all or nothing.

2. BCM was not designed for 250 concurrent users. It was optimized for about 5 or so - I'd say 25 users max, depending on how much its used. If only a subset of the 250 people will be using it, then its not a problem. Dynamics is better suited for large orgs, although its also very pricy.

3. I forget. :) You can customize the forms... I'm just not sure if you can make all mandatory.

4. Ok, make me open a form to check. :) It looks like you cannot use calculated fields in BCM, but I could be wrong. (I don't see a mandatory option either.)
