In my business(recruiting);it is very important to track a contact's former employer/s. What is the best way to do this in Act 2011?
Create a new field or use an existing area such as groups/companies? Contacts can have from 0 - 5+ previous employers.
Looking for suggestions/help.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

One contact could have many past employers and one company could have hundreds of past employees. What then?
Example, would want to lookup/search all contacts in my dB that used to work for Microsoft.

The best opetion is to use one of the custom one-to-many table plugins. This allows defining a custom table where you could list the previous employers. As this is a one-to-many table each could list as many individual previous employers as required. You might also want a separate custom table for job skills. while the capability is built into the ACT! program you would need a third party product to provide the user interface. I use TopLine Designer but there are others such as the Durkin Toolkit.
