Setting up contacts and related fields.

Can anyone please share with me a good system to set up contacts with Toodledo. My initial thinking is to set up a folder called Contacts and have the initial line be the whole name, and everything else be notes. However, it would be nicer to have fields for firm name, address1, address2, city, state, zip, tel, fax, cell, email, etc.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I already have my tasks and events synchronizing with Toodledo and I have signed up for a pro account, and it would be nice to have the whole kitten caboodle under one roof.

You might look into using an Outline for this, since Contacts aren't tasks, I would recommend keeping them out of the Tasks section.

Thank you for the suggestion. I just checked Toodledo's iPhone app, and they don't yet have synchronization for outlines. On the Mac, I'm using Emacs to synchronize tasks with Toodledo and it doesn't handle notes or outlines.

I've set up a couple of tasks already with a folder "CONTACT" and that permits synchronizing with all mobile devices and the Mac, but the notes field will vary depending upon the contact information. My concern will be whether a few hundred contacts plus a couple of hundred tasks will bog things down -- I haven't yet tested the upper limits of synchronization. There are a few apps for mobile devices and desktop applications that filter by folder, so this system is doable, but not custom tailored to contacts.

Google Contacts?

I don't understand why you'd want to use TD to manage this data.
