Can activity series activities be scheduled for a time?

Greetings,

 

Our company has ACT! Pro 2012 version 14.1.108.0 and uses activity series extensively.  We have one activity series in particular with four linked activities that is scheduled monthly for each client, three of which always happen at the same time every time during the business day relative to the anchor date.  Currently, we are manually adjusting the times of those three activities every single month.

 

Is it possible to schedule those activities for a given time, or is this just a weakness of ACT! Pro 2012?

 

Thank you in advance,
Isaac

That is by design. Activity series are made timeless on purpose to keep from creating a schedule conflict.

If there's a schedule conflict - that's our problem, not ACT!'s.  Any suggestions on how we can override this behavior?

No. Any schedule conflict encountered would cause the activity series to abort without completing. That's why the activities have to be timeless.
