Here's aquestion probably for Exact, but if anyone else knows the anwer/solution, please dive in.

When using the e-Synergy add-in to Office, Word suggests a subject, Outlook handles things its own way and Powerpoint doesn't enter a subject but leaves the subject blank so that e-Synergy requires you to enter one. Uniquely, Excel saves prefill the subject field with (empty subject). I'd like to know why, and how to prevent it--we want our users to have to enter a subject. Is this e-Synergy coding that could be easily changed, or is it some system switch that we can change, or what?

Though we try to keep things consistent across the applications, they are developed and maintained by several different people, and unfortunately functionality differs occasionally. As for changing/customizing this functionality, it is not something that can be done easily due to how the Office add-ins are compiled.

Thanks for the honest answer. Perhaps the consistency issue can be fixed in a later release. Either a suggested subject or a totally blank field (forcing the user to enter a subject) would be acceptable.
