ACT! 2010-Can Fields Be Added to New Contact Box When Creating NewcContact From Outlook E-mail Messages

Hi -

 

I am adding many new contacts from my Outlook e-mail into a database using ACT! 2010.  When I click on Create ACT!  Contact from Outlook, a New Contact box appears with the fields for entering information that will be dropped into the database.

 

My question is:  can fields be added to the New Contact box so that I can enter additional information?  I've been researching this and haven't been able to find any answer, yes or no, or how-tos. 

 

Thanks -

As mentioned before, please add this request for features requested at http://www.act.com/community/feature/

 

I requested a similar feature.  If I have a field coded mandatory to fill in, like ID/Status, you can add a contact from Outlook without having to fill in tht field.
