YES YES YES!!!! Pay it! Er, ahem. I upgraded. I am glad that I did. The
SOM objects in 2.2 (the ones that Sundial insists on calling "buns") make
Relish extremely configurable. I'm a to-do list oriented guy, so I work from
the to-do bun--I keep it minimized on the desktop at all times. I keep
the phone book bun on the desktop so that it's just a double-click
away. If you preferred to work with daily, weekly or monthly views
of your appointments you could do that too. 2.2 adds an icon bar and
some other stuff. I adore it. (Oops, I am getting immoderate again.)

Aside from being more accessible (thru the phone book bun) 2.2 doesn't
really add a lot more detail to the basic phone book entry. This is to my
taste, BUT you do have the option of adding a Memo to your entries
containing whatever info you want. You might also play around with
group names, and you could fit some stuff in the "Remarks" field,e.g.
email address. But it defintely does not have the same range of
structured entry fields as the IBMWorks PIM.
Hope this helps,
sig 95 coming August 24th! Well, kinda.
