2013 Premium - Scheduling Events - Date reverts to current day

I just upgraded from 2012 to 2013 SP1 (Premium).  Now, when I manually type in a future date into the “Schedule Activity” dialog box, the date reverts back to the original date (ie today's date).  Need a fix - quickly since it's quite annoying.

Spsearch,

It looks like you're not the only one.  I'm an ACT! CC and have the same problem on my system.  I'm sure this is very frustrating for anyone on the latest ACT! build.  Hopefully Sage can get a fix out to us soon!

What we've found is that you will need to either click to another field or tab to a different field, the change will then apply.

Greg, 

I'm not sure that's correct.  Here's what I've found when you overtype the Start Date and tab out of the field:

 

- It works for Appointments

- It works for Calls

- It works for Meetings

- It allows you to type for To-Do's but does not save the change you make when you tab out

- It does not allow you to type for Personal Activity, Vacation, or custom activity types unless you click in that field again (even though the text is highlighted there by default when the window opens)

Note: Behavior above is consistent in not only our production database but also the ACT2013Demo.
