Version 18...........What idiot decided to change all the activities in task list blue?

Hi All,

 

Why is updating Act always a stupid thing to do? Swift-page has decided to make all the text in Act for Web blue. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

 

OK rant over and karma dictates that its probably user error.

 

So does anyone know how to make Act for Web18 show different colours in the task list?

 

Many thanks,

Thank you and best regards

It would be very helpful if features are not removed in new versions as that is not what customers expect. Please can we have this and the icons in the Documents Tab returned asap.

I think it is reasonable to ask that when a new release is issued with "What's New" it also discloses any features removed but better still PLEASE do assume people do not use features and leave them in!

Yes that would work for the Act app but we are currently slagging off the Act for Web BETA that I paid nearly £3000 for the privilege of being a guinea pig.

Honk honk.....

 

Shame Act developers shame on YOU!!!!!!

Hi All,

We are currently in the process of addressing a defect with the activities colours in task list and detail pages using the web interface, where the colours are not displayed. This has been logged as Defect D-04184.
I don't have a specific time frame for the release of the fix to share, but it is being worked on with high priority.

A current workaround is to use the calendar view where the colours are still displayed.
