It is, and I will do that if I can figure out a way to map the entities
I need to what the CRM provides.

In an essay about programming, Ellen Ullman tells a great anecdote about
a programmer who was so socially inept that they could only communicate
with him via email, even they all shared the same office. She also
writes: "Pretty graphical interfaces are commonly called user-friendly.
But they are not really your friends. Underlying every user-friendly
interface is terrific contempt for the humans who will use it. ...to
build a crash-proof system, the designer must be able to imagine--and
disallow--the dumbest action possible. He or she has to think of every
single stupid thing a human being could do. Gradually, over months and
years, the designer's mind creates a construct of the user as an
imbecile. This image is necessary. No crash-proof system can be built
unless it is made for an idiot."
