How can we improve OpenCATS?

Ability to have one record be a candidate or contact or both

Most of my contacts enter the job market sooner or later. Sometimes they are clients. Sometimes they are candidates. I would like to keep one record on that person, and have them show up in both (or either) places.

        Many times though as a contact they will have a corporate email address, and as a candidate they will have a personal address.

        I see value in having a decoupled or loosely coupled but separate list of both - but an option to link the two records would be helpful to me. This type of potential duplication is not exactly a problem as the functional usage is different.

        Well, cats-0.9.1 was very well known for the duplication problems. If you can unify the candidate/contact via their email address, it would solve this minor problem

        Yes. I end up creating two records for that person... Its not ideal, but it gets the job done - and keeps them in my searches.
