Having both 'active' and 'inactive' contacts
A nice feature to have would be able to identify contacts as 'active' or 'inactive' - when they leave the company. The 'inactive' status should apply certain conditions to the contact, such as never including them in mailers, perhaps having a special format to the contact panel and crucially removing them from the 'link' view in organisations.
A tag structure would normally be fine, however we work in retail, where contacts shift frequently but remain within the industry at a senior level so are good to keep, and at a store level just change continuously - so the 'Former Employee' tag just doesn't cut it as it would seriously clutter the org view.
Please consider implementing a 'deactivate contact' feature in the actions dropdown, would make me and my team incredibly happy!
