Contact Links

Post by Simon » Sat Jan 03, 2015 7:16 am

Hi - I am new to VueMinder, so sorry if this is an obvious question.

I have, for example, 7 events. All 7 are linked to the same Contact. 6 events are in the past, and 1 event is in the future. When I click on the Contact I only see the 6 past events, not the the event scheduled for the future. By the way, I created the future event by copying and pasting an old event for this Contact.

Is this the correct way Contact Links are supposed to work?

Many thanks.

Hi Simon, welcome to the forums. There appears to be a bug when copying an event that is linked to a contact. The link will appear in the copied event but it doesn't get propagated to the contact. I'll fix this in the next release. In the meantime, follow these steps to fix the link:
1. Open the problematic event.
2. On the Links tab, click the X button in the upper-right corner of the contact link to remove the link. If the Links tab is configured to show links in a list instead of tiles, then select the link row and press the Delete key.
3. Click Yes to confirm removing the link.
4. Click the Save and Close button.
5. Re-open the event.
6. Re-add the link by using the "Link Existing -> Contact" button.

Fantastic ... so good to get a prompt, clear and more importantly an accurate answer to a question. Thanks so much. Your workaround works exactly as described.
