In my view it depends on what you want to do with those contacts. If you use them in one-to-one communication re specific projects, then it makes sense to keep them in context with the rest of your info. If you are more likely to send mass prospect mailings, then you need a software that can output list from queries. I know that UltraRecall can do this, but I don’t know about ConnectedText; I am still getting the hang of it.

Think well; there is gold in them hills.

I agree with Alexander that if you’re looking for a contact manager that does not need to output mailing labels or otherwise export information to a CSV file for mass communication, CT makes a great contact manager. It’s perfect for capturing notes related to people and connecting them with projects.

You’re probably right. CT would be faster, and more configurable… and easier, I think anyway.

Why are there so few videos of CT? I counted two. It’s hard to know what you’re getting into.

Note - you don’t even really need markup for getting your thoughts and notes into CT. You can just type paragraphs into it in the same way you’d type them into any plain text editor.

Re contact management - I actually find CT ideal for this, because you can have contact records that range (arbitrarily) from “napkin” style (just dump some text on their topic) to more structured records with “fields” (properties). I haven’t needed to export a list, but I’m pretty sure you could use the summary command to build a table of contacts (or only a specific category of contacts) and then export that table to html, open in a browser, and copy and paste to Excel, etc.
