That's a good suggestion and one tha tI will try. I can export anything I want from my database (Smartlist to go) on either the palm or PC side so that would work for my next actions.
The other problem I run into a lot is this: I'm out on a demo somewhere and a customer calls. In order to 'get up to speed' on the situation I need to pull up their history notes quickly. With smartlist to go I can't always do that quickly if another database is open. I don't like that awkward silence while I navigate to the proper database and record in order to proceed with the conversation. I *think* it would be so much easier to navigate to a contact in my addressbook using the hardbuttons on my T3 and just pull up the notes there. My notes are not overly extensive and I think the note field would be adequate. I could pull up customer info without ever removing the stylus.
The downside to this is that I can't use the addressbook or outlook contacts to filter on certain criteria. I use a lot of checkbox and date fields ion my database to track when I have sent out promos or price packets to different people.
I can link smartlist records to the outlook contacts, but if I need to update a smartlist contact then I have to update outlook or palm addressbook and resync. I hate switching apps - it's kludgy at best.
Anyway, I have yet to find a solution that works on both the palm and the PC. Even Smartlist to Go has limitations on the PC side and some functions only work on the handheld side. I need BOTH to work equally.
I will consider the above suggestion and try to work it into my current setup. At least my GTD list will be completely in one app at that point.
