Act for Web v20 Customize the group detail page

Is there anyway to customize the group detail page HTML file so that I can set the default sort order and column width?

Re: Act for Web v20 Customize the group detail page

There's no tools within the Act software that would enable customisation of the actual web pages themselves, but I have seen some custom solutions created by Act! Certified Consultants that had modified the pages themselves.

If you're looking for a customised solution, then our business partner network usually have the skills and tools to deliver this - might be worth reaching out to one in your area.

Mike,

 

Since SP has "improved" the looks for Act for Web which unimproved the functionality of the platform, I need to edit the Groups-Detail View shown below to restore some of what we did have in older versions.  First of all, when I sort the columns, click on a contact to view the details of that specific contact, and then return to the Groups -Detail View, I have to resort the columns.  Previous versions would retain the sort.  Second,  The column widths could be reduced to fit more columns on a single page without the need to scroll right.  The new version has a hardcoded minimum.  The line spacing (height) coded into this view is also ridiculous.  Too hard to review left to right without loosing my place.

 

As a bonus, something that quit working many versions ago is being able to set up the view below to always retain the sort order last set.  In other words, if I log out and then login later, pull up the Groups-Detail View page, the information would still be sorted per my last input.  For example below, all information would be sorted by Job Number in descending order.

I am not sure how much input GL Computing has with SP these days, but I hope folks like you can turn SP around.

 

Thanks,

Robert
