10 data columns is not enough!

Each year I'm tasked with updating our member directory and I would like to send members their current details via CM to their preferred email add but I am limited to only being able to import 10 columns of data for merging purposes. Is there a way of increasing this number for tasks like this?

10 is the maximum number available I'm afraid, although we will record your vote for more.

Using Campaign Monitor to store entire customer records is a bit outside the typical use at this point.

In a situation where there is a lot of customization for the e-mail OR the client would like more information on export, 10 is simply not enough.

That would be a good suggestion at all for my future benefits since I am new to this site. Hopefully I can use it while I'm still on the track.

Add my vote for 20 columns !

Another vote for additional columns.  As CM continues to refine its approach to automated / triggered emails and potentially the per-campaign pricing structure to encourage smaller, more targeted campaigns, custom fields will become much more important.

Ooh, we've just hit this limitation too.  More custom fields please! =)

+1 to 15 columns, but 20 would be better!

+1 vote for 20 custom fields.

At the moment I'm working with a client whos customers should select different sizes for 8 categories of clothes, preferred store, interessest etc... I need at least 16 custom fields... :-/

Another client is a chain of 36 pet shops who needs 12 custom fields...

For me, this is a very sad limitation in an otherwise great system...

As much as we prefer keeping profiles simple for subscribers, client demands more than that. And because I love CM to not want to use any other solution as much as I can, I've to vote for this too. :)
