I would like to extend "Products" in ACT (10.3) by SDK interfaces - e.g. add some extra information. It is possible to add some extra fields to Company, Contact, etc and also I read about cutom entities - but also it can be connected with ParentEntity - Contacts, Companies, Groups, but not Products.
I need advice how I should do this. Generally - is it possible to add some extra information to data base? Any extra tables which are not connected directly with Contacts, Companies, Groups?

ACT! Custom Entities can be related to one or more of the following: Contacts, Companies, Groups. Tthey canNOT be related to Opportunities, Activities, History, Notes, Products or any other entity or sub-entity within ACT!. And, they must be related, at the time of creation, with all the entities that you want them related to - you canNOT go back later and add or remove a relationship.
Perhaps Sage will add some of these abilities in later releases(s), but as of ACT!2009/v11, these restrictions are the reality of Custom Entities.
Hope that helps,
