BCM 2007 Contacts Not Integrated With Existing Mobile Phone Contac



  • 1. Using Filters with BCM Contacts
    I have multiple categories for each of my contacts. I would like to filter the contacts to extract the names of those clients who have specific categories. For example, I want the contacts that contain the categories of "insurance" AND "mortgage". When I use the Advance Filter setting on the Custom View Organizer, I ask for: Categories ... contains ... Insurance Categories ... contains ... Mortgage My hope is to get only those clients who have both of these categories as part of all their categories. However, I get some that have insurance, but not mortgage and some with mortgage and not insurance. When I click SQL on the Filter screen in the Custom View Organizer I find that it is set to "OR". If I replace OR with AND, I get an error message. "The filtering operation failed. Either these folders do not support filtering or the filtering condition are too complex." If I try to filter through BCM Reports ... BCM Contacts ... BCM by Category and use the AND between my filters, I don't get any results. Is BCM capable of the type of filter I want to run? -- Sammy

  • 4. Install both BCM and CRM 4.0 in Outlook 2003
    Hello, My company just installed me MS CRM 4.0 in my Outlook 2003. Before that, I was using BCM on my own. My question is : is it possible to have both products installed in Outlook 2003 ? I tried to install BCM again and it wouldn't open. I have a bunch of information in BCM that I dont want to loose (I have a .sbb save), and additionnaly I would like to keep using BCM along CRM for my own needs. Thanks a lot for your help. Ga PS : my system is French.
  • 5. Data bases within Business Contact Manager
    We have a growing landscape construction and maintenance business. How do we create a data base or different databases that allows us to seperate our clients, suppliers, landscape architects, developers, property managers etc. One option it appears is to simply have one data base and then use the category option to seperate each database. But it limits us in that we cannot within this large data base have the same category of landscape archititects sub categorized by residential, commercial or institutional. Do we create seperate databases for each, and if so, how do we do this? or Do we create folders as we do in Outlook and if so, how do we do this? This is fundamental but if we need seperate databases to accomplish what we need, we don't want to get off on the wrong foot. How do we proceed?

1. Installed BCM 2007 For Outlook 2007 on Wndows Vista
2. Created Accounts and Business Contacts in Outlook BCM
3. Installed outlook add-in and BCM software for Windows Mobile device
4. Performed synch.

I can now see my business contacts on my "Windows Mobile 5" phone (HTC P3300 
in this case) if I start the "Business Contacts" application on my 

a) None of the contacts are available using the normal dialling methods on 
my phone (e.g. by opening the pone dialler and starting to type the persons 
name). Instead I have to start the "Business Contacts" application on the 
phone and make the call using that app.

b) If i get a call from one of my busness contacts, their name is not 
displayed on the phone to identify the caller. I therefore cannot easily 
identify missed calls as being from my business contacts, or screen out calls 
that I know i can get back to later.

Both of these points make the synchronized data pretty useless in that it is 
now HARDER to communicate with my business contacts than if they had been 
simple contacts in MS Outlook that had been synchd with the phone.

Anyone have a reasonable solution this this problem?

Welcome to the wonderful world of "Seamless integration" as defined by MS BCM!
This problem has existed for far too long of a time and eventually someone
will hopefully notice and prioritize it for change.  The lack of coordination
between some of the departments in Redmond is appalling.  Fortunately, there
is a good 3rd party solution that can help you out. Go to www.chapura.com and
navigate to the Pocket Mirror Professional for Windows Mobile.  This app will
enable you to synch your BCM Business Contacts to your mobile device and yet
retain the Pocket PC Phone dialing features that you are discussing in your
post above.  The current BCM add-in software is about 5 years behind the
times in that it transfers data over to a stand alone Pocket PC but over the
past few years, MOST Pocket PC's are converged Pocket PC "Phone" devices
requiring dialing capability.  Hang in there.  We might actually see a true
integrated solution to this problem before the decade is over!

Best regards,

3.windows mobile phone not recognize business contact from bcm

I synchronize my Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2007 BCM between my computer and 
mobile phone (Treo 700 WX).  I have no Outlook contacts, only contacts in BCM 
(that way I have a single SQL database with all information further 
integrated with Microsoft Accounting Professional).  When the phone rings, it 
will not identify the caller.  Is there a setting in windows mobile that will 
allow the phone to recognize contacts from business contact manager that are 
synchronized on the phone?

I have appreciated useful information from the group in the past...
thank you all.

1.  When I use my Cingular 8125 with Pocket Informant 2007 PIM software
- my contacts and caller ID only works for my regular contacts... not
BCM contacts!

2.  Additionally, within Outlook and BCM, when I move files between
regular contacts and BCM contacts, I end up creating duplicate files...
 it doesn't automatically recognize the duplicates the way it does when
you save or download new contacts.
