  1. Adding Additional Roles

    It would be WONDERFUL if we could create additional roles to be able to fully customize to our office needs since we have more than just the advisor, aa, and csa.

  2. Add roles to the main page for a contact

    Instead of having the redundant "Servicing and "Writing" advisor on the main page under contact details, put the Roles in these spots. Because the roles are associated with workflows, It is important to have them in an easy to see place instead of on a random page that is easily forgettable.

  3. Tracking maiden names and name changes.

    A long-time client gets married, you make the changes in Redtail, but you know them by their previous name. It would be helpful to have a way to pull them by their maiden names, without having to hyphenate it for the sake of being able to pull it. A way to link a maiden name, that is no longer a legal name, to the new married name.

  4. Trusted Contact

    Under the contact record, can we please add fields for "Trusted Contacts"? We need to record the name, address, phone, and email of Trusted Contacts in a way that is easy to find. We are currently adding it to the "Important Information", but having a specific field in the contact info would be more helpful. It would also be nice if there was a checkbox somewhere that you could click if Trusted Contact is "declined", as this is something required going forward.

    Give us a link we can send a new contact to input their OWN data into RT. Right now, we send aform to them to fill out contact info - they manually type it out and send it back to us. Then we manually input it into RT. Why not just do the inputs once and have them populate their own profile. It's 2023, this should be easy to do.

  6. Automatically fill the state and city based on zip code

    Our tax program (Pro Series) allows you to enter the street address then skips to the zip code and automatically fills the state and city based on the zip code you entered. Huge time saver! :)

  8. Add an option for name pronunciation

    We have several clients with unusual or difficult to pronounce names. Right now, we keep information on pronunciation in the Important Info section, but it would be really convenient to have this displayed more prominently or closer to the name on the top of the contact record.

  9. Enable user defined fields to have a customizable order

    I think it is key to enable user defined fields to have a customizable order, not just alphabetical. This would allow users to format and better fit UDF's to their specific needs. I know that we are evaluating other options for our CRM needs because of the lack in customization with UDF's, if there were more options on this front, it would allow us to stay with Redtail.

  10. Annual Review COMPLETED Section on Main Client Contact Page

    Please add a box that can be checked off or written in free form to detail when the annual review is completed.

    I know the "Know your client" section has a "Client Review" feature, but that just alerts me for the next review.

    It would be super beneficial to have a place on the main contact screen for a particular client that shows if we have completed the annual review or not. This will allow us to quickly glance and see during our other conversations if we have completed this documented annual review.

    Either a yearly check box or a…

  11. add a designated beneficiary area for beneficiary information.

    Memberships isn't good enough. Adding beneficiaries to individual accounts is too time consuming. What I'm surprised Redtail doesn't offer is a designated area for beneficiary information (like a tab under Know Your Client). For our office, beneficiaries usually are the same across all accounts, minus a couple here and there. It would be nice if we had a specific region that would have the following:

    Beneficiary Name
    Beneficiary Type (Primary, Contingent, etc)
    Relationship
    Date of Birth
    Social Security Number
    Percentage

    As well as, a place to add accounts manually AND link accounts, not one or the other. It would be…

  12. Contact Permission Checkbox

    When adding Contact Permissions, it would be much easier to select what users/teams need to have permission with a checkbox list than to click "Add", select one, click "Add Permission," then go do it all over again for as many need to be assigned.

  13. Update clients contact photo based off of their linked social media website

    I think it would be great to have the ability for our client's contact record photo be updated to whatever the image they have on their connected social media website. For those who have multiple social media websites, I feel it would be easy to give the advisor a choice on which photo to have system default to use.

  15. Allow customization of "Servicing Advisor" and "Writing Advisor" terms

    We are a wealth management firm that is not an RIA. We do not have sub-advisors, nor do we use the terminology "writing advisor" (this confuses everyone).

    It would be great to customize how we refer to the team members who are bringing in business and managing each client relationship. We might decide to call them "Relationship Manager" and "Sales Manager" for example.

  16. RMD Ages in Contact Information

    Someone just emailed me asking about putting the client age in years and months (78.8 years) so they can see the client's exact age for, example, taking a withdrawal without penalty. They suggested it would be in the Contact Details under the DOB. Thanks!

  17. Show Contact Details on all pages

    Right now, the "Contact Details" section only shows on the client overview page. Having access to this information on other pages (like the "Contact Card") is extremely important. It is a hassle to have to return to the overview page just to retrieve a Date of Birth or Tax ID. It would be so much easier to display this on every page, including the pages for each individual account. When talking with an insurance company while viewing the clients policy details, we need access to this information. It should be displayed under the contact card, just like it is on…

  19. Servicing Advisor = Advisor Role

    Workflows are best used when tasks are assigned to different "roles" within each firm. If we went to the trouble to assign a Servicing Advisor to every contact, why now do we also need to assign an Advisor Role to every contact? Seems redundant.

    Sure, you can do a bulk change to assign all servicing advisors the advisor role. But why? If contacts are always getting added, how frequently should you need to run these bulk actions before running a workflow. Recipe for mistakes...

  20. Link a contact to Multiple Folders in Imaging

    Currently we can only link a contact to one folder in imaging. It would be helpful to allow 2 or more folders for clients who have both personal and group retirement plan accounts.

    Example of my Imaging Library:

    -Client 1
    -Client 2
    -Client 3
    -ABC Corp 401(k)
    *Participant A
    *Participant B
    *Client 2

    Because Client 2 is already linked to their "personal folder" I can't link them to their own sub-folder within the 401(k) plan. When viewing in the CRM, I won't see these documents unless I remember to manually search for them.
