Format Fields in Edit History (add colour coding)

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

 

I'm quite unfamiliar to Act! and have been using it at a new workplace - we are trying to migrate the existing users from using Notes to using History instead - however they prefer to use the colour coding that is available in Notes.

 

Is it possible to edit colour format options in the Regarding section - not the description but the actual fields for Regarding/Result under History?

 

Using Act! Premium Version 18.2.53.0, Update 2 version Thank you!

If it is do-able, go to ACT!/ Tools / Preferences/ select the Tab= Colors/Fonts and within that list of items on the left, there are at least three History items you can changes the fonts/colors on..  Smiley Happy

Hi Fillstaff,

 

Thank you for your reply - I think you've misunderstood a bit

 

I want to colour code each Regarding type not the entire section, on attached image I want to customise the colour of just the word "Call attempted" not all text in the section?

I suspected that is what you meant so unless there is an add-on, then my suggestion is the most ACT! can do in that area.

You may check with www.exponenciel.com for an add-on?

 

Ok I think I found your solution with exponenciel ?

Only Ask the owner ( Gilles ) to get you an add-on to do same for History..

Good luck...  Smiley Happy 

 

PS; I just sent an email to the owner at exponenciel of your need. I included this thread post link.
