Great idea.


Same could be done for the Notes tab - goes green (or whatever) if it contains notes.


You could also do something similar for other tabs if data had been updated in the last (x Months (configurable)). For example, if a new Opportunity has  been added in the last month the Opps Tab goes green in that contact's record.


Lets make it easier to get an overall picture without having to click all the tabs in turn!

It would be great to have any tab with data in it change to a different color. I hate clicking all the tabs for additional information about a contact before placing a telephone call etc.

Why can't something simuliar be done for the company tabs?

Roger,  Jim Durkin's product handles all tabs.  Try It.

No it doesn't.  I'm running it and it only installs in the contact tabs.  It will not even   work in user generated contact tabs.


Nothing installs in the company tabs.


Am I missing something?
