Outlook 2010 took away my activities tab!

By Mike ·
Greetings All!

The reason I'm posting this is that I have a bit of an issue. With Outlook 2010, Microsoft decided to remove the "activities" tab which existed on Contact Public folders. This trusty dusty tab allowed the user to link the Public Contact folder to a Public Journal folder.

When you clicked the "Activities" tab on the contact, it would then search through the journal folder, finding all linked items. Cool huh?

Evidently, not many thought so, and Microsoft decided to yank that out of Outlook 2010. Now, here's my predicament.

I have a Public folder for Contacts that has tens of thousands of contacts in it. I also have a Public folder for Journal entries that has a metric ton of journal entries related to those contacts.

Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can replace / replicate this behavior? I would prefer not to buy a CRM package like Act! Or Goldmine, I would rather replace it with some SharePoint functionality or something along those lines. Of course, any suggestion is welcome.

Thanks in advance!
Mike Scott
