Pre-Populate Text For Completed Activity?

Is it possible to have pre-assigned text populate in the details box when completing an activity such as a phone call?  For example, often times there are repeatable tasks with the same type of notes where we manually have to type them each time, it would be nice to have it such that when you select a certain activity, it either pre-populates or you have the option to click a button to pre-populate the details box.

 

We had something similar to this in the desktop version but have since moved over to the web-based version.  Any ideas/suggestions?

 

Thanks

Nothing that I know of in the ACT! program. For tasks like you describe I use a third party application called Typeitin. http://www.wavget.com/typeitin/

 

Typically I use it for local inserts but I just tested it on APFW and it works there also. I've even used Typeitin for keystroke macros. Really a neat application.
