Some of our clients use multi-select dropdowns very much. A common solution to store many selected items is by assigning numbers to the values, and setting the 'real, textual values' in the description. This way we can store many more items without having to create a field with a ridiculous long length.
Only one problem: the Act! search function only search in the values, and people don't remember numbers very well. The question is: can you guys make the search option to also search in the descriptions? That would be really helpful to a lot of customers!

I have clients that do the same as the descriptions are long so they use a brief code as the item for the dropdown.
The solution is to use dynamic groups that search the filed for the dropdown but you name the group the same as the description.
Now easy to find in groups and just click on create lookup and you have your list of contacts.
