One of the nicest things about the new GoldMine is the list of Recently Used Contacts along the upper left hand side.
By default only five are shown, to increase the number of records in this list;
1. Select Tools | Options | System tab
2. Change the number in the "Recent Items Shown" box (the max is 99)
3. Restart GoldMine
I find this invaluable when I need a sense of who I've been working for recently for followups.
