           * Cross reference and link together items.

           * Link items with contacts column (slang extension required).

Visual Demo:

Often there are projects involving multiple people.   A column with key people & phone numbers for every project is helpful when ecco is used to build a printout and the printout is used to work the project.

However, actually linking multiple contacts to projects has been impossible,  and hence this tool.

Also incredibly useful for linking notes about calls or other actions  with other items in the file,  such as to-dos, followups,  document links, etc.

Here is a very basic example of linking phone items to projects.   (Any items can be linked to any other, even if they are not phonebook items.)

<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" WIDTH="1227" HEIGHT="806" CODEBASE=",0,0,0">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="/forum/Attachments/magicLinksdemo1.swf">
<PARAM NAME=play VALUE=true>
<PARAM NAME=loop VALUE=false>
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=low>
<EMBED SRC="/forum/Attachments/magicLinksdemo1.swf" WIDTH=1227 HEIGHT=806 quality=low loop=false TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="">

Linking is also enabled with Slang Extension 'linked columns'.

You can instantly jump to the linked column value in the phonebook,  or context view.

Note that in the following example, the column heading "Contact" was set with the Slang Extension column properties "Caption" setting,  and the actual folder name is "EMLinK".    By useing "EMLinK" as a Linked item column,  this feature is activated.

Multiple contacts (or other links) can be added to a single item as multiple sub items,  each with a column link.   (Multiple column links can be jumped to at the same time,  just select them together.)

Also, you can instantly jump to all items which link to any PhoneBook item (or other linked to item).

Here is a demo of the Slang column magic Link in action:

<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" WIDTH="822" HEIGHT="684" CODEBASE=",0,0,0">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="EMLinksSlanged.swf">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="/forum/Attachments/EMLinksSlanged.swf">
<PARAM NAME=play VALUE=false>
<PARAM NAME=loop VALUE=false>
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<EMBED SRC="/forum/Attachments/EMLinksSlanged.swf" WIDTH=822 HEIGHT=684 quality=high loop=false TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="">

Here is a PDF version of same:

(Note: an alternative, more complex approach of assigning tasks to phone contacts is illustrated here (  May be helpful in different work flow situations,  illustrating on-the-fly  link list creation instead of phonebook based links.)

By right clicking any viewpad tab from phonebook view,  that view can be added to the phonebook view.

Contact references thus can be instantly accessed within a working view.

for example:
