Account and Contacts both in a Phone Call

In my scenario I have to track down both Contact and account for a
phone call. That means whenever I make a phone call, I want to Track
down To which contact the call was made and for which account. In my
scenario one contact is related with many employers. Also its observed
that relationships cannot be set for Phone Call and because of this
even if i create a custom entity it does not solve my problem.

Any help plz...

A phone call can have multiple recipients and/or senders. And it is allowed 
to select accounts, contact, users and leads or a combination.

Thanx for reply.

But I observed that if the phone call is incomming then sender lookup
can contain only one record, i.e. either account or contact (and
ideally its correct :-)) that is why i want some other smart way which
can let me know how much calls have been received or made for a
perticular contact, and for a perticular account (both)

Expecting help.

Try using the Regarding field.  Your incoming sender will be the
contact but then you just include in the Regarding field the account
that it relates to.  That's the purpose of the Regarding field.  If
there are other things like Opportunities that you are supposed to use
in the Regarding field you're just going to have to weigh your options.
 Decide which is more important, knowing the relation to the
Opportunity or the relation to the Account.

Those are the constraints unless you get into major customization.

Good luck,

Is this because the default (Parent Account) relationship already exists? Can you not have duplicate relationships? Thanks in advance for the clarification. > Is this because the default (Parent Account) relationship already exists? Yes. > Can you not have duplicate relationships? Yes, you cannot have duplicate relationships in this manner. To do this you need to use the Relationships/Relationship Roles functionality, where you can pretty much do any kind of relationship between clients (ie accounts and contacts.) HTH, R.

Muliple Exchange OMA User Accounts from One SmartPhone
I wish to be able to access multiple user accounts (all on the same Exchange 2003 server) from a single smartphone running Windows Mobile 5.0. After setting up OMA on Exchange and the smartphone and visiting https://FQDN/oma all works well after entering the username and password for one account, but then the smartphone remembers the login (presumably via a cookie) for future visits to the same URL. There seems to be no easy way to delete the cookie on the smartphone, so all subsequent accesses to OMA go straight through to the same user account.

Extreme Delays Deleting Change Orders from Project Accounting
We use Project Accounting for Dynamix GP and we are attempting to start using the Change Order features to track changes made to project budget and fees. Unfortunately, during testing, we are experiencing a five to ten minute delay whenever we try to delete an incorrectly entered change order. This occurs even if we simply start to create a change order, never use it for anything and immediately attempt to delete it.

exchange accounts will not delete from site

Re Label Accounts Field

want to transfer out funds from a fund within an account to a fund within the same account.
I want to do this to preserve my cost basis. I have a 401k that lets say has a fund that I bought for 100 bucks and it gained 10 dollars. when I issue a buy/sell to transfer it to another fund (within the same 401k account) the new cost basis is 110 dollars instead of the 100 that I actually spent. I know that using transfer in/out will preserve this cost basis, but it doesnt seem to work within an account per other threads of this nature. How can I do something similar within the same account? I am using 2005 premium. Thanks Vic. I don't think your use of Cost Basis reflects tax la...

Problem configuring Outlook 2007 w/ job email account

Loan account
Hi, Something else that's giving me trouble. I've set up a loan account - all seems to be fine. It's a three year loan, and the first two payments had already been made when I set the thing up in Money. Money coped with this fine, and within the register of the loan account it now accurately shows the first two payments and the principal-element of each payment, together with the diminishing value of the outstanding loan. However, it doesn't seem to be linked in any way to the account from which the payments are actually being made. Conceptually it seems to me that the loan ...

new string started on PF contact folder issue
