Photos in layout


We would like to add our clients' photo to their contact in ACT.  Is there a way to do this?

Kerri - You can certainly do this, here's how:


1. Go to Tools>Define Fields

2. Click Create New Field

3. Call is whatever you want, but the type will be Picture


Close that interface, and ACT! *should* prompt you to go into the Edit Layout "mode".  If not, then:


4. Go to Tools>Design Layouts>Contacts

5. Find a spot to put the image, and on the left click the Picture Field option

6. Drag a "box" or rectangle shape on the layout where you want the image

7. ACT! will prompt you for the field - choose your new field

8. Save the layout.


Now, back on the contact record layout, double-click the picture box area, and it will prompt you for a location and file/image to choose.


Good luck, hope this helps...
