I am developing a business directory website with an promotional advertising campaign functionality:
Basic complete business directory questions:
–Can you add custom entry fields, and search by them as well
–Can multiple images be added to a company listing
–Can these images be added to a slider widget
–Are there email notifications for new listings, expired featured listings, orders created, payment received etc. to both the user and the admin
–Can shortcodes be sorted by VIEWS e.g. homepage to list companies with the most views
–Is there a reCAPTCHA functionality on submissions
–Does admin backend dashboard have FULL control to manage everything that a user lists? Does this include viewing payment history of users
— I know there is a Links extension which creates a portal for the user to add, edit and del their own listings. But can this user portal be modified with more functionality and tabs with e.g. custom links to other pages which manage other plugins like newletters etc, news updates, text pages or to add shortcodes from other plugins etc.
–Can you send more information on monetising options like featured listings. Are featured listings paid? Is there a Payment gateway plugin to complete payment? Does featured listings have a start and end date to it?
–Can specific entry fields be monetised? e.g. for a fee certain entry fields become available
With promotional advertising campaign section, I want users/companies to be able to add separate promotions that they are having. These additional listings should be simple images with a description and start and end dates etc. This needs to be monetised.
–Is there functionality for users to add separate paid listings (same functionality as normal listings)
–Can specific pricing plans be created e.g. pricing plans only associated to a ‘Promotion’ category and start and end dates. So if a company wants to run a campaign, then they would pay to add a listing in the ‘Promotions’ category? Fee is also based on start and end date. Naturally these can be featured on the homepage with shortcodes to this category.

I know this reply does not address all your very specific questions, but after reviewing them I can say that, sorry, but, Connections is not going to be a good fit to meet your stated requirements.
