[Plugin: Connections] Organization vs Individual (2 posts)

    I have a few small things which could be addressed in the next minor update to Connections.

    First off, when selecting Organization, does the text-area for Biographical Info need to be there? Biographies imply an Individual, not a Corporation or Small Business, or an organization even.

    Perhaps having it change to Organizational History or Business/Corporate History would be more appropriate?

    Also, when adding a new field: Phone Number, again using Organization.
    I don't think it makes sense to have the drop down box for different types of phone numbers.

    The way I understand it is.. while entering the information for a business you're not going to type in the Home Phone/Fax number for a business. Perhaps if you worked at home, but normally you get a separate phone line/number for a home based business. Even if you didn't do that you can just list your home phone number as Work Phone from the drop down.

    Maybe I just don't have a lot of experience with all this stuff. Perhaps someone could enlighten me as to how these different options get used?

    Correct and that's exactly how the previous version functioned. When I redesigned the input form I didn't take that into consideration. I just looked at how Outlook, Apple Address Book and Google Contacts handle contact info... None of them actually even distinguish between the types and allow you to enter what ever info you choose. With that said I'm not sure I'll change it or not.

    As for how these options are used, why not just visit some of the sites shown as examples on the plug-in's web site?
