Cool links the web info tab

Since the launch of ACT! 2010, we have been looking at links that can be added to the Web Info tab to produce useful results and we would love to hear about some links that you have created!  The one below is my current favorite because I talk to customers and coworkers across the globe and I'm always trying to figure out what time it is where they are.  This link helps me see exactly what time it is when I am talking to someone.  To use this this link, just copy and paste it into your Edit dialog on the Web Info tab.  It uses the Contact's city to calculate their local time:

 What links have you added to your Web Info tab in ACT! 2010?

Cool! I like to use Hoovers free company summary with the link here:

One other link I like is the White pages reverse telephone lookup - tells you whether the number is cell or landline and some additional info on the owner of the line, where published.

Has anyone managed to ad a Location filter to the LinkedIN webinfo URL so you onle see contacts from your own country/location?

Re: Cool links the web info tab

When you use their advanced search you can see the URL produced for searches limited to the UK as the value gb ala:

 

http://www.linkedin.com/search/fpsearch?fname={Contact.First Name}&lname={Contact.Last Name}&searchL...

 

 

So unless you keep your country values in your DB as gb and us (for USA) then you'll either need to keep the country location static (maybe create a Linked IN search UK link, and one for each country), or if you're handy with javascript write a local html file that takes your ACT! country field and alters it to what LinkedIN accepts as a country criteria.

Thanks Alan

 

 

And here's a link for Google Finance - Share Prices.

You need to fill out the Company Ticker field, so for "The Sage Group" plc it's SGE

then use http://www.google.com/finance?q={Company.Ticker Symbol}
