Seeking: Zip code radius search & secondary contacts flag

Hi -

 

Not sure if this is the right forum...

 

I'm looking for 2 add-ons:

 

 

1.    A zip code radius search:  Using a zip code framework (zips by longitude & latitude, we already have) I want to pull a list of contacts within a user defined-radius, ie 10 miles.

 

      a.    Example, show me all the contacts located within 10 miles of the selected contact

 

2.    Secondary contact flag:  If data exists on the secondary contact name field, color the tab, or otherwise flag the primary contact record.

 

Anyone already have these (or can create)?

 

Thanks - Mike

Mike,

 

They're pretty picky about what we can post in the forum as far as addons are concerned.  We're trying to get them to give us an addon forum for end users.  In the meantime I sent you a private message.

This particular subforums tends to be a bit more leniant in regards to posting add-on solutions, so long as it's been requested by a customer I won't remove posts suggesting add-on products.

Matthew,

 

Thanks.  I thought I'd seen some before but I thought I'd err on the conservative side.

Understandable and I appreciate it.

 

So long as the reply is a solution to a customer/ACC request and not just a blatant advertisement I won't remove it.

Is there another forum where such requests are better placed?

I think this is the best place.

OK. FYI, both requests are for a client.

Re: Seeking: Zip code radius search & secondary contacts flag

Hi Stan,

 

I've got the same kind of question, the only spin in this delivery though (to use a cricketing term!) is that we would need it to be based on UK Post Codes.

 

Does anyone know of an add-on that would work in the UK?

Vivek,

 

I don't know of one off hand.  I've been working on something off and on for the US.  If I can make it work in the UK relatively easily I will.  Don't expect a solution any time soon from me though.
