Millions of contacts in CRM
I am concerned about the use of MSCRM in a client with a few milliion
contact records (around 6 million). I know from my own experience with SQL
Server that there is no problem with this database, but I wonder if there is
any issu regarding the application ou the application server...? I also read
the performance and sizing white papers, but the concern there is related to
number of users not record number...

Is there a way to limit the Parent Customer field on the Contact form so that
it only allows Accounts to be chosen?
We don't want the capability to allow Contacts to have Sub-Contacts - but it
does not seem possible to hide the Sub-Contacts item in the contacts form
left hand menu.
Could you create a new custom entity [Companies or something like that] to
use instead of Accounts? then create a relationship between Companies and
Contacts and have the lookup on the contact form be to the Companies object,
rather than Accounts (remove the parent account lookup field from the ...Import Contact as AD contacts

When my clients create new contacts on their email accounts through OWA why
is it they have type the persons name into the search window when they want
to add a person or persons to their "to:" field in the message? Why doesn't
their contacts show up in the bottom window so they can select one or more?
Also when they create Distribution Lists via OWA they are not able to view
the lists under Contacts like you can when you are using MS Outlook 2003,
also the list doesn't show up when you search for it when creating a new
message?? Why is that?

I have users complaining that they are seeing too many contacts at once and
only want to see the contacts that are available to them.
When a user opens an Account and clicks on Contacts, how can it be made to
display only the Contacts that are pertinent to a certain user or function?
Microsoft CRM 3.0 is designed such a way that the user acually will see any
record that he's allowed to see. You could limit rights to users, but I don't
think this is the way to go. Currently I don't see a way to restrict the
visible contacts based upon which user is logged on.

I was using outlook express on server 2003 for years without many problems.
Recently I exported all my contacts to a .WAB file then moved it to my 2008
R2 server for import. The problem is when I import the 997 contacts, they
show up in the immediate session however when I close and reopen WLM the
imported contacts are no longer there.
anyone have any ideas?
I found that removing all punctuation marks (comma's, periods ...) from
the contact's street address field cured this exact problem

Groupwise has a feature called "Frequent contacts".
Frequent Contacts keeps track of all addresses that you
frequently e-mail. It's an awesome feature. Is anyone
aware of a similar feature in Outlook 2003.
Not really. You can manually add addresses to your Contacts by right
clicking the address. For an automated solution, you'd need extra code...

This used to be possible in 1.2 but for some reason was taken away in version
The Quotes entity has a "Other Contacts" that allows users to specify the
contact within an Organisation (Account) that the Quote was send to. The
problem is that when you look at the Contact record and you navigate to the

as the Customer are shown. WHY TAKE THIS FUNCTIONALITY AWAY???!!!!
