Save company structure
Looking for a quick way to manage information for companies, departments and employees? If people work at the same company (optionally, department), you may add a company or department only once and then simply select them. So, the company and department information is shared by many personal contacts.
Link your records (people, departments, companies)
BCB provides is a handy solution to store the list of employees within the company structure. You can establish the following linking: person - company, person - department - company, department - company.
Preventing accidental data loss
We understand how important is to prevent accidental data loss. To protect your contacts from system or power failure or to transfer your contacts to another computer, BCB offers the advanced Backup option that allows you to easily create copies of all BCB contacts, including photos.
The Backup option includes the Auto backup and Manual backup option. With Auto-Backup enabled, each time you quit the app, shut down/restart your Mac when the app is running and before importing new contacts, Business Contact Book automatically creates backups of your contact database, including photos. So, you can easily load the necessary backup using the Load option.
With the Manual Backup option, you may create manual backups that can be easily loaded on any computer where BCB is installed.
Accidentally deleted important contacts? With the Trash option enabled, you can easily restore them. When you delete contacts in Business Contact Book, they are moved to the app's Trash. Deleted contacts will be there until you delete them from the Trash or empty the Trash, so you can restore them with one click. The Trash option option is available as a Premium Feature or as a part of BCB Pro.
The Quick Search option lets you search contacts in the "People" and "Companies" lists and even in the Trash by creating various filters to display contacts that match certain conditions. You can search either in all columns or in a certain column of the selected list. Just enter a word or a phrase in the Search field and press Return.
Intelligent multi-conditional search
With the Advanced Search option you may easily search your contacts, including contacts in the Trash, for any information from job titles, departments and companies to location, phone numbers and email addresses.
For example, you can quickly find the people who work for a certain company or the people who live in your city and whose phone numbers begin with "212". You can also find contacts by parts of contact details. The Advanced Search option is available as a Premium Feature or as a part of BCB Pro.
Sorting and displaying contacts
Sort your contacts according to various criteria. While the column's header you click first has the main sorting priority, all other columns are also used for deeper sorting but with lower priorities. E.g. if you click the 'First Name' header, all contacts will be sorted by 'First Name' and contacts with the same 'First Name' will be additionally sorted by 'Last Name'. Just click the column's header to get your contacts sorted. Click twice to change the order. You can also change the column width to automatically fit the contents (AutoFit).
Print contacts the way your like
Business Contact Book comes with various printing settings making it incredibly easy to customize and optimize the information you want to print and helping you take more control over the printing process to achieve the best results.
You can choose the fields you would like to print, print your address book records as personal or business cards or lists as well as save contact information into a pdf file. And, of course, you can configure page setup before printing. The Print Reports option is available as a Premium Feature or as a part of BCB Pro.
