Add Mobile Phone to Lookup dropdown on the Toolbar - Act2012 pro.

Add Mobile Phone to Lookup dropdown on the Toolbar - Act2012 pro.

As I don't have my Act database on my Android phone (don't want to go there yet!!), some caller numbers show without a name (some are in my phone book already), so I want to do a quick lookup of the Mobile number.

Looking up on Mobile Phone is actually quite slow (Click on lookup / Contact / Scroll down to Mobile Phone which is slow as it is over half down / click / enter number.

I have set a keyboard shortcut for Contact, so I just key the shortcut and type the name.

I want to do the same for Mobile number.

I can't see any option to add a field in Customise Menus and Toolbars / Commands tab - Lookup.

Is there any way I can add the Mobile Phone to the Lookup menu list?

Neat trick Roy! That definitely eliminates scrolling through the field list. I've never had the urge to right click a contact field before! You live and learn.

That will work quite well as I would generally be in a contact record when I need this.

However I would still like to be able to give that particular lookup a keyboard shortcut too - if at all possible.

 

Thanks very much.
