Act 11 Premium - Preference possible for group list?

We're working with Act 11.0.0.367.

When scheduling activities, you get the option to also 'associate with' a group. When clicking on the associate with button a seperate window pops up.

 

This window always starts with GROUPS  (Which is basicly the 'tree' representation of the groups available)

Since we have about 3000 groups (all our groups represent certain projects) we are trained/used to always find the right group by the group number or name in the GROUPS LIST view.

 

Is there a way anyone knows to make Act use the GROUP LIST view the preferred first view when clicking on the associate with button in stead of the GROUPS tree view?

 

Any help or hint appreciated!

 

 

Kind regards,

Unfortunately, there isn't a preference to change this setting.

 

Please submit a feature request to be considered in a future version - http://www.act.com/community/feature/

Why don't you create a group @Open and this way it would move to the top of the tree and then you could have open projects at the top of the tree view, easier to find

 

Or you could create a Completed Projects and then move all completed projects to this tree and thus have many fewer groups to search

Thanks. That idea was already there and some of us work that way. Others are always dragging the GROUP LIST (and therefore make about 2 extra clicks for each activity).

 

I hope that Sage sees that introducing the new GROUP TREE view is a nice feature, but that changing a graphic look/GUI in a program is only done properly if the 'old' look is still reachable through a preference or so.
