CRM -- contact available to everybody -- access permissions, Is there a way to really make a contact available to everybody?
Hi Yana thanks for the response. So :

Dept. A will have Read personal & department...


Dept. B will have Read personal, & department...

And so on keeping the contacts to each department.  But trying to find a way to have some contacts be available to the entire company , viewed by anyone regardless of the department.

I thought of creating a fake employees and putting him in every department and then assigning the contact to this fake account and thought it might be an idea to make it available everywhere? But of course it means these contacts are no longer assigned to a proper person.  

Any ideas? Thanks again
CRM -- contact available to everybody -- access permissions, Is there a way to really make a contact available to everybody?
After watching the videos, forum scouring, and experimenting I think I am starting to get a handle on the the CRM with regards to access permissions. I see that when checking the "available to everyone" ( this contact can be viewed by anybody) what it really means is that the contact is no longer tagged as a "personal" contact and it is now available to everyone else in the department that the employee is a part of ( the employee that the contact is tagged as "responsible to".  

My question is , Is there a way to tag a contact as truly available to everyone in the company? Regardless of what department the contact belongs to?

I had the idea of creating a fake employee and assigning him to be a part of every department and then assigning public contacts such as vendors to this fake person so that everyone in the company can see the contact. Only problem is that then it changes the "responsible" role. Any other ways around this so I can have general contacts truly available to everyone without losing the department privileges we have set up?

My second question is that after someone leaves the company and they are set to that status what happens to all the contacts that were assigned responsible to that employee?

Thanks so much!
