Can I duplicate an Activity in ACT9?

I have a standard activity which occurs 40 times on random (but known) dates over the next year (i.e. NOT a recurring activity). The contact is always the same and the times, details are always identical. Is there anyway to duplicate this activity on the dates I want it. Currently I am entering it from scratch on each date, which seems time wasting and tedious.

Hi Graham,

You can actually copy and paste an activity to a new time

In the calendar view, highlight the activity and press ctrl-c
Still in calendar view, move to the new date and press ctrl-v
That should provide the function you are looking for.

Thanks!! Of course! I should have known to try ctrl C/ctrl V in a database, I have used it before in other databases. We do get so attached to our rt click/copy function don't we?
