GoldMine 6.7

Gee, FrontRange just sent me a demo copy of GoldMine v6.5 a few weeks ago for a product review and already Goldmine v6.7 is out! I feel so outdated... GoldMine 6.7 launched

I spoke with FrontRange a week or so ago and they are really pushing their developers hard to crank out new features. More importantly, they told me they truly value customer feedback (such as feature requests) and try hard to add them into the next release.

In fact, TMC uses GoldMine and further I even sent FrontRange's technical group a "feature request" email. Here's an excerpt of what I emailed FrontRange:

We’ve always wanted the ability to create specific groups for each sales rep (by territory) so the sales reps can just Activate their group and work solely within their group, not bothered by other records they don’t care about.

The problem is that when they bring up the Search window and search for a company, the Search window searches within the entire database and not within the activated group. So if they search on say IBM, they’ll see IBMs from all over the country and not just their territory.

There should be a check box in the Search window called “Search only within Activated Group” that is on by default (or remembers last setting).

Maybe add this feature to the next release and call it the new feature the “Tom Keating Advanced Search feature”?

They responded that they would look into adding the feature and the "naming rights". GoldMine 6.7 launched

Here's the news release:
