There is a menu/filter bar hidden in the code that should be activated. This will not answer all of the points here but will help organize the infolog record views in general.

There is talk about modifying the notes and todos apps to support features currently in Infolog for those types and then either drop the infolog view entirely or provide a way for infolog to access data from those other apps (ie each app would store it's own data and infolog would just become a linking and display system .. currently it stores all of the notes, todos, and phone entries in it's own tables)

an update to this would be to include the Contact and Subject of the info
log notes in the summary of all items attached to another application


InfoLogEventType (open/total)
Contact1: Description1
etc.. .

After using the AddressBook in .16 it dawned on me that InfoLog
could benefit from a similar level of depth.

I've had great success in InfoLog creating custom entry types. In
addition to the standard entries i've made a few others.. adn
would like to make more... However InfoLog is limited to 3 events
attached to any one Application's object. This is cool, as things
can get cluttered and lengthy if > 3.

As a solution to this problem, I thought that a list of all possible
InfoLog Items would be good to replace the standard growing
table that accompanies applications that support InfoLog.. Buttons
or text links that list all the possible InfoLog entry types (including
any custom entry types that could be made) and a report of the
number of InfoLog entries that exist for that particular record. Say
an AddressBook entry, may have a number of Notes, and some
PhoneCall entries. A Project entry may have more, say every major
PhoneCall during the course of working with a client..

AddressBook's Organization, People and their various information
fields, broken down by category is very similar to what it would
look like, except perhaps InfoLog entries would have the number
of records of that type and (if taking things to their farthest point)
status level.

InfoLogEvent (Number of Entries, StatusNotices)

ASCII art rendering:

[Notes (3)] [PhoneCalls (1)] [ToDo (2, 1 open)]
[CustomEvent1 (5, 3 open)] [CustomEvent2 (0)]

InfoLog already has great strength in X-Linking objects, making
the interrelations that make groupware come alive, It'd be nice to
see InfoLog grow as 'the' way to make any sort of amendment or
reference or note or relation to the objects it already supports.


--hope this helps
