Running Smart Tasks on a server (Act for Web)

Hi

Since most of my users access using the Web, how can I setup the server to run Smart Tasks so that they don't have to be logged in?

This would be the smart tasks feature running as a service. Unfortunately Act doesn't currently perform this way. It is a common feature request and I'd say we are all hopeful that this will be added into a fuuture release. but. For now this i is only possible with add on software

Look at Northwoods Sales Automation Manager. (runs on a scheduled task). I believe there are a few more. Also look at InfoOptics Ccampaign Manager and the Swiftpage Drip marketing tool

You might post a request for this feature to be considered for a future version here -

Input from this web page goes directly into a database that management has direct access to read, and which they also track and gather statistics on. It also allows other users to vote on these so Sage can get an idea of the demand

This article might help word the request to make it easier for management to look at it:
