Auto vCard usage

Auto vCard usage has been climbing steadily since I released it in February. A graph of monthly usage since February is below.


Auto vCard allows you to add a custom link to both Leads and Contacts and automatically create a vCard file from the record. These files will open into Outlook and other PIMs. In short, you click a link in Salesforce to save that contact/lead to Outlook.

    scott, i’m disappointed that you’re using excel to chart your usage. you know this is crying to be a custom object with a dashboard built on top of it.

    pn: I appreciate your concern. I could easily log this information inside of salesforce. However, I only have Developer Edition accounts and could hit the 2MB limit sometime. When I developed this, I just didn’t want to have to think about that. People use this functionality everyday so I didn’t want to risk having any errors arise.

    But you’re right, it’d make more sense if I used Salesforce for this. I’ll work on that.
