Hi Brian

My .02c worth.....  (and we are only just starting to use this app so if I am
misunderstanding something, sorry)

A project is conducted for an entity - individual or company - if adding a new
contact to a company then the fact that the company is the 'customer' should not
need to be monitored. However, I wonder, if an individual becomes a company and
needs to be moved from the individual section to the company section does this
impact on what you are doing.

If I understand the address book correctly, entries are user owned and either
public or private. I think it needs to have the concept of corporate public, 
public and user private. Where the corporate entries are not 'owned' as such by 
user but by the system (maybe a nominated admin account) and group accessed by a
corporate group for maintenance, readonly for the rest but always public, as
distinct from the user owned private addresses which may be made public at the
users choice.

I have configured the timetrack module for work and conducted a brief demo to 
key players here. The two main users of the existing timetrack system are to
examine their requirements during the next two weeks and from that identify 
or reporting requirements. If there are new things to be added, I'd be happy to 
involved with this as we will most likely need to invest some programming 
and it might as well be applied effectively.
