The icons where base64 encoded so speed was not of major issue, it was more simplicity to the user with ability to just use it out of the box. Create account, Login and Enjoy this is really it, no books, no training, no tutorials needed. Just something around K.I.S.S.

I see, well for now I will stick with generic fields and options, because this is simply for keeping track of clients, organizations and tasks, I do allow for as most fields for each as I can possibly have for most used and needed options. But in regards to custom fields I think I will wait first and see where I and few other friends of mine go with this. And thanks for advice

Say what in you're view is the most logical way to allow for custom inputs in different features, the problem does not lie in the inputs it actually is in the database structure. The CRM that I am doing is for generally a small business or a freelancer with low pricing starting as low as $5 enough for me to cover server cost + set aside something for hardware updates. I also will be providing dedicated databases to thous who have no interest in using shared. See this is my problem its the database scheme that is killing me in regards to custom fields.

This is a great piece of advice. I agree with you in regards to icons it is a nightmare just to find a reasonably good one for whatever you are doing, unless you have 100,000 custom made icons for all picks but its not so. I will probably go with my alternative text simplified with use of drop down menus grouping relative options under one generic term like Contacts houses: Clients + Organizations or Tracker houses: Calendar + Tasks. Here is the idea I will probably use: cl.ly/MZdt also this is a hosted CRM by me and custom fields are not in development plan's yet

They still included a drop down, sorry did not make that clear from the start, there is a drop down for icons. But based on the feedback I will go with Text Simplified: cl.ly/MZdt

Calendar icon = Calendar + Tasks, Contact icon = Clients + Organizations, they where grouped so if you group this two you will get the 6 icons or 8 links its all correct, my only possible alternative would be to create two drop downs. Contacts = Clients + Organizations and Tracker = Calendar + Tasks, this would decrease navigation size because its "Organizations" that's eating a fairly large chunk of navigation

I added another file this time with how it looks with text, see it uses more space. My only option is to chunk things together into a drop down so say Contacts would be Clients + Companies in dropdown

For mobile there will be a separate UI based on jQuery Mobile UI. Also doing both Icons + Text seems a bit of a space waste because text will eat-up most of the space, which causes problems down the road for smaller screens like tablets.

Actually you did get it almost correct :) Statistics = Sales and Archives = Cases and New = Add (Contact, Client, Case, ect I was planning a drop down for this one). The only problem with text based navigation is that it takes more space then its icon counterpart, but I may be forced to use text instead of icons
