Act! Pro Version 188.8.131.52, Update 5
Windows 10 pro
When Scheduling an Activity/To-Do, I'm only able to schedule 1 call/to-do per timeslot ("start time").
I would like to be allowed to add more than 1 call/to-do into a time slop on schedule activity.
Currently, also, it only allows a call every 30 minutes, even though I have default duration to 5 minutes.

You will get an activity conflict warning but just ignore it and you can book more than 1 activity per time slot.
Alternatively in tools - preferences - Calendar , change slots to 5 minutes and pick a different 5 minutes for each activity.

Thanks for the reply.
However, this doesn't resolve my problem.
I want to be able to just hit a time under the "start time" tab.
I changed the duration to 5 minutes in preference, but as you can see from the screen shot, it only changes the "duration" tab. The "start time" slots are still 30 minutes and I would like to set up multiple calls for 8:00 AM without having to go through all of the manual steps of choosing another open slot time later in the day, then highlighting that time, deleting it and manually entering 8:00 AM.
I hope I'm sufficiently explaining this.

Thanks for the effort Copper, however, this doesn't really solve my problem.
Did you see how many steps you have to take in order to manually override the system. Doing it once is no big deal, but having to do it several times/day everyday adds up; thus, my original inquiry.
If I want to book more than 1 appt at 8 am everyday, it's a very tedious and inefficient process.
There should be a way to do this without all of these required steps.

I figured it out, by accident.
Under the start time box/slot, instead of trying to hit the time slots in yellow section that already have multiple activities scheduled, you simply hit the pre-set time on the left of that in grey.
Thus, if you have multiple activities scheduled at 8 AM in the yellow section and Act won't let you double schedule another activity by selecting the 8 AM slot again, you, click on the "8" number on the left column and it double books it for you without going through all the manual steps above.
