Activity Type - Text Description rather than Icon

[ Edited ]

Hello

Is there any way/means or ability to display Activities with a Text Description rather than an Icon.

 

Regards

Unfortunately, there is no way to do this.

We have an addon named Impact for Act! Which allows the users to turn off the icons in the calendar view.

Jim

Thanks...

 

I actually became an 'Impact Suite' owner a few days ago.

 

My query related more to using Act for Web (where Impact suite does not work)

 

Here we have numerous multi stage activities - with names such as

Stage 1

Step 2

Phase 3

etc

etc

 

When viewing the Task list (the main view for our users) - there was no way to show what the task was:

 

Hovering over the Icons in ACt for Web, does pop up the actual task name.

 

But it would have been handy to have text rather than Icons for the users to see easily.

 

We have partially solved the issue by creating a Range of 32x 32 Icons and giving them some abbreviated letterings such as

S1 for Stage 1

S2 for Step 2

P3 for Phase 3

and colouring the Icons

 

Not ideal - but at least the Act for Web users can quickly obtain a visual indication of the Activities/Tasks
