Hi all, hoping for some tips around macros in ACT (if they even exist!)
I perform a number of repetitive processes in ACT Premium and wondered whether there was a way in which they could be sped up using macros (like Excel).
i.e. I'm on a particular record and I want to a) add a blank 'call attempt' and then b) schedule a call for 4 weeks' time. Or a) add a blank "call attempt" and re-schedule an existing task for 4 weeks into the future.
Ideally a hotkey would be used for this i.e. 'Ctrl+M' etc
Appreciate any guidance given

I use a Logitech 'gaming' mouse (I don't game) and their 'Logitech Gaming Software' (free download from their website) with an old version of Act!
I don't see any reason why your newer version of Act! will work also.
Works great! Keyboard strokes only when setting up Macro (no mouse movements) which is more stable anyway.
If you are interested (or anyone else) in more details please feel free to ask.

Up to ACT 6 you could run macros, after that it will take field triggers for things like starting an activity series or app.
You might want to investigate the ACT Connect Link for 3rd party apps here -
