A very common question is how to structure ecco to 'track' information based on two different sets of criteria.
 
(see http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/ecco_pro/message/6130  for example).
 
 
 
 
The attached .eco provides one example.
 
 
 
 
special notes:
 
Auto assign rules for some folders.  From "Folder" pane, right click on folder *or* highlight (select) folder and press the "Folder" button at top right of list of folders.
 
Sub-folder view for some columns: right click on column name header (or with selection box in that column use the "Column" function) , then "properties" and "sub folders".
