- To share a customer/opportunity/sale, open the corresponding contextual menu and choose "Share ...".
- All data associated with the customer/opportunity/sale are rebuilt in the database of the team member. For example, if you send a customer, you will send simultaneously also all its opportunities, its sales, its activities, its engagements on the diary, the relationships in which it is involved, etc.
- The team member who, therefore, receives the customer/opportunity/sales, has all the elements to continue the work done so far on that client/opportunity/sale by the sender.
- You have two ways of sending data: via email and via Dropbox.
- When data is sent via email, the team member will receive an email with an attached file. The team member will have to open that file using the menu "Open in ..." made available by the iOS.
- When the data is sent via Dropbox, these will be stored into a transit folder which must be shared with the recipient's Dropbox account through the Dropbox folder sharing feature.  A different folder will be created in the Dropbox space for each team member.
- The team member, by connecting myCRM to its Dropbox account, will be able to read the content of its transit folder and, if some file is available, decide whether or not to import them into its database, through the menu Insert => Shared Data
- Once imported, the data file will be automatically deleted from the transit folder.
2) Ability to insert money values in any currency
- You can now insert money values both in the base currency of the app and in any other currency, by opening the currency chooser panel.
- When you choose a currency different from the base one, you must always insert the exchange rate. This rate can be inserted either manually or automatically retrieved from Internet.
- You can also choose either to set forever the inserted rate or make it be always automatically updated.
- In the Settings you can choose the base currency of the app and the time interval used to update automatically the exchange rates.
- The base currency of the app can be changed in any moment and it can be different from the currency set on the device. When you change the base currency, all the money values already inserted in the database mantain their identity and the database is automatically converted to the new base currency by recalculating all the exchange rates between the new base currency and all the other used currencies.
- All the exchange rates retrieved from Internet are stored into the app and reused when there is no possibility to retrieve its updated value. This allows to use the app when there is no active Internet connection.
- All calculations on money values (for example, the statistics) are perfermed using the base currency of the app. All the necessary conversions are made on the fly using the best available value for each used echange rate.
