Customising the History Types and Duration

Afternoon all. I am using Act! Premium Version 18 and am looking to find out if I can customise the duration times for specific Types. It seems to only give me a list of pre-determined times (ie 5/10/15/30 minutes etc) and I would like to customise this to specific pre-determined times for each different Type. I know I can manually overwrite the Duration when creating the History, but I need this to all be on a drop down list to pick from.

 

Also, is there anyway to customise the layout and the fields within the New History box?

 

Many thanks

Re: Customising the History Types and Duration

Unfortunately these aren't options you can customise with Act!

It's possible that there may be addons that allow you do to this though - you could check out http://actaddons.com to see if there's anything that might help?

Re: Customising the History Types and Duration

Tools | Preferences | Calendar and Activities Tab > Activity Preferences.
You can set the Duration for each Activity Type ... The new History dialogue uses this, also.

What sort of customisation do you want for the History box?

Mike's right that you can customise the default Duration value, but unfortunately you aren't able to create new 'intervals' for the dropdown.
