Customize scheduling alarm times

Current alarm times in advance of an event go from 5 days to 1 day to 1 hour.  Is there a way to add other intervals in between those?  (Act! Pro Version 16.2.14.0)

YES - Go into the alarm field and type:

 

3.5h = 3hours 30minutes

2.5d = 2days 12hours

54m = 54minutes

etc.....

Try and let us know!

Re: Customize scheduling alarm times

Thanks! It works.  Now to be really difficult, does it have to be done manually for each alarm or can choices be added to the drop down menu?  I have looked in the Help section but do not see where to get into that menu.

Manually for each alarm as far as I know :-(

Re: Customize scheduling alarm times

I'd like to add times to the various time related drop down lists. As I can times manually and the system accepts the values then allowing those tables to be modified should be available. Id there an ACT employee that can answer this question? Thanks.

I remember that some US ACT!-Addon supplier has something to add custom intervals to the DD lists. Forgotten who it was, probably Exponenciel. Might even be a free-on...

Thanks for your reply.

 

It does not sound like ACT corporate has coded any user configurable options for this issue. Too bad, it would be a nice feature rather than hard code values into a table. Makes no sense to me.
