    Hi,

    Thank you for voting and submitting this issue.

    At the current moment, we allow for importing to custom fields and exporting of your existing custom fields in Nimble.

    At this time, we do not plan on updating custom field options in 2013, but we will review this feature request based on votes and will update it according to our available bandwidth to work on this feature.

    Thank you for your feedback and support!

    Best regards,

    Joseph

    @Lon - Nimble should have custom Deal fields in their core product and there should be a full range of field types available, however there has been no progress on either in the 2 years since they were first requested.

    I implemented the Tai.st addon for custom fields in Deals 2 days ago and encountered a couple of minor issues, which I reported and they have been fixed - a very impressive response from Anton and his team. From my conversations with them, it is clear that this is just Version 1 of the add on and that it will be further refined based on user feedback. I strongly recommend that you and other Nimble users who are waiting for these features engage with the Tai.st team and let them know what features you need.

    To evolve, Nimble needs to be able to offer customised versions of the product to different verticals, Real Estate, Financial Services, etc., etc. It is impossible to do this as things stand due to the lack of a full set of custom fields. The sooner custom fields are available the quicker Nimble can be seen as a proper CRM rather than a nice way to track social network contacts and email. This is core functionality, the field types must be available in the underlying database, surely it is not a major task to make them available in the application itself?

    I am very disappointed to hear this and think it is a bad decision. The lack of a full set of custom field types means that Nimble cannot be customised to the extent that it needs to be if it is to be a true CRM system and not just a nice way to manage your social media and email.

    Almost by definition the most important fields in a database to the user (beyond the basic contact information) are the custom fields - because these are the fields that the user has selected to add themselves and these are the fields which contain the unique, business specific information which makes a CRM system really useful to its users.

    I have no idea what your development resource availability is like, but if I was making a decision based on commercial factors I would be fast tracking this feature rather than putting it on the long finger. Bad decision!!

    Hi,

    At the current moment, we do not have any specific plans for an integration with Evernote.

    Instead, we have added the feature to log notes on contact records in Nimble.

    All you will have to do is go to a current contact and select “Log Note” to save a note to a contact record.

    For more information, see our announcement here: http://support.nimble.com/customer/portal/articles/666079

    Thank you for your continued feedback and support!

    Sincerely,

    -The Nimble Team

    Any further update on this long anticipated (and long overdue) integration?

    I would also agree with this. Evernote does what it does better than anything else and certainly better than the Notes feature in Nimble (but it is essential to have a native Notes feature in Nimble). Integration with this hugely popular app would be a great addition to Nimble - and I mean a native integration, rather than an integration through Zapier or other third party cloud connectors. This is something I would really like to see.

    Hi,

    At this time, we are not building anymore integrations internally because we are focused on releasing our developer API.

    Once our developer API is released, more third party applications will be available for Nimble, which increases the likelihood of an integration with an invoicing tool like Freshbooks.

    We appreciate your support and look forward to having more third party integrations in the near future!

    Regards,

    The Nimble Team

    Hi,

    Thank you for taking the time to submit this feature request.

    We do not currently have plans to develop a Xero integration internally, so we are declining this feature request for now. We would love it if you could continue to vote for this feature.

    If this feature receives enough votes, we will reconsider developing a Xero integration for Nimble.

    Thank you for your feedback and support!

    Joseph

    I would love to see RSS feeds for both people and companies. I would also like to see a consolidated RSS feed on the new Today page so that I can get latest updates on that Page when I log in or if I refresh the page at any time during the day. RSS is not dead, despite the demise of Google Reader.
