Outlook BCM database should be able to be installed on SBS 2003



  • 1. Pointing Smart Tags toward Business Contacts
    Is there any way of having smart tags in Word 2003 point to Business Contacts rather than Contacts? When I direct Smart Tags to add an address in Word, it looks in the Contacts folder, not Business Contacts. Likewise, when I want to add a Business contact from a smart tag, it puts information in the Contacts folder. Thanks for any help you can offer. Regards JimB
  • 2. Customizing BCM
    Is there any way to customize the reporting capabilities of BCM? Can the drop down lists within opportunities be modified as well? Thanks for any help with this one. Regards JimB
  • 3. BCM 2007 Chart Display
    Whilst the dynamic chart is a great idea on the BCM home page, mine is making up the data! I'm happy to have opportunities worth $51,500 in Feb but there are no Opportunities that have dates set for Feb 2006 or 2007. Where is the display getting its data from and how can I fix this to show the real information? Also, I have tried to changes columns in the Home page but they revert to the default view as soon as I change screens. John

It is a shame that the storing the database on a central server machine like 
SBS 2003 is not supported. MSDE and SQL 2005 are both used by SBS so it 
would make sense to utilise them and for any number of other reasons 
(availability, backup, remote access etc). CRM 3.0 is just to overkill for a 
lot of small companies both in terms of features and cost. Most of them want 
a simple two tier contacting system (Company --> Contact) and to be able to 
link incoming AND outgoing emails to those contacts - basically what BCM 

We had achieved something like though some reworking of Randy Bryne's 
"Building Application with Outlook" that used Public Folders. This has worked 
successfully for us and other client for some time, unfortunatly new version 
of Exchange and Outlook have broken it and I do not have the time to re-code.

I agree with you, we are currently running it on a Windows 2003 Server,
but that also is not officialy supported.
