Automating activity entry

Status: Available in ACT! 2011

For most of my Act! work, I enter an activity, usually a to-do, then clear it and add a follow-up.  There is so much repetition that macros would be a great help--we use Act! 2009, v. 11.  Also, a macro would help when entering a new contact 'cause the cursor always goes to the address field, and I typically like to start at Contact--small detail, but that's the way things are arranged & a macro correcting cursor placement would help (unless there's an easier way).  Thanks!

To Sage: BRING BACK MACROS PLEEEEAAAASE?!  That was such an useful feature of previous versions. 

 

To other users: Is there any Addons that automate tasks? Yes it should be a native feature as before, but I still need it working regardless of Sage's priorities.

With reference to cursor placement, you can set the tab order in the layout designer. (Tools > Design Layouts > Contact) then View > Tab Stops > Show Tab Stops.
