Thanks for the reply, henry0;
What I am trying to do is get people to sign up for a membership. So what I REALLY need is some way to keep track of their contact info, website address, and also the date I last contacted them by email or phone, and what the outcome of that contact was.
And just as importantly I need a way to remind myseld when it is time try to contact them again.
Once they pay I can keep track of when their membership is going to expire using my other software, but it eould be nice to integrate the contact manager so that it reminds me, say, a month in advance that their membership will expire and I need to contact them.
The date their memberships expire is kept in a mysql table on my web server, so I thought it would be great if the contact manager could look up the expiration date.
Hope that clears it up a bit. Thanks in advace.
