    Cannot Connect to BCM database

    I've tried everything. I've been using BCM since 2007 so I'm familiar with a variety of technical issues, but I'm really stuck now. I haven't been able to successfully share the database for 2 months now. I've even reinstalled windows 10 on all machines several times with no luck. Win 10 Pro...

    Office 365 Click to run

    After extensive time and testing I can say with certainty that installing and using Office 365 Click to run (which is how all will install unless you use an enterprise edition or buy a stand alone downloaded copy) *doesn’t work properly*. There's a lot of talk about how it should work, but it...

    Customize Comments / Notes Section time stamp on Contact Records

    Does anyone know if it's possible to customize the comments / notes section on the contact cards? Specifically, I'm looking to simply remove the timestamp button so that hopefully the notes section can expand. Or is it possible to customize the width?

    Bulk Edit contact notes

    Is there an easy way to bulk edit contact notes? I have thousands of records that were created with really long strings of data with tons of blank lines. On a word doc, it's about 8-9 pages, but after removing the blank lines it's 1-2 pages. Any ideas of how to remove all of the blank lines...

    Notes / Comments in Contact - Text is there but not indexed or searchable

    Anyone else have this problem? I've been using BCM for about 6 years now beginning with 2007 and now 2010. Very strange. I have about 20,000 records and several thousand have notes in the comments section, but they are not searchable. It's almost as if the database doesn't know the notes are...
