We rely heavily on the Contact field within the Place properties in the installed ECE version currently in use. We request that this field be added to v7. The option/suggestion to create Custom Fields in v7 to replace the information currently & easily available in the Contact area of Place properties is extremely cumbersome.
Thanks for the feature request. You're not the only one that has an extensive library of Contacts built up using version 6, not just in the Place Properties but also in Report Distribution lists. While I can't give you a timeframe for new development in EnergyCAP 7 related to Contacts (yet!), I invite any other users who use Contacts to weigh in on Bonnie's request.
