Is there another ACT!2011-12-13 addon that can replace Autonumbers product ? Thank you

[ Edited ]

Sage ACT! Pro 2011 Version 13.1.111.0, Hot Fix 6

 

Is there another ACT!2011-12-13 addon that can replace Autonumbers product ?

I am looking to replace Autonumbers by Exponenciel. Can someone tell me if there is another option please?

 

I need to generate a new record id for each new Contact  in my Contact Layout

 and generate a new Job# in my Opportunity / Job Orders Layout.

 

Or do I need to hire a ACC to build me a Auto Numbering Button add-on?

 

Thank you in advance.Smiley HappyFSB

Still trying to be kind, Gilles is very smart coder but he and I are not currently on speaking terms in a major way. I will share a recent experience though siince you asked. . An ACC sent a ACT!2011 Premium 17 user customer to me. I sold them my wares, then refer customer back to 1st ACC for DB Hosting Services. Customer wanted Autonumbers which I used to include in  my db product layouts. Myself and the other ACC and including the Customer, has wasted over 5 days trying to get one copy of Autonumbers to work. And I have used it for 2 years? untiil now. Waiting and waiting( approx two days each attempt) for Exponenciel to get in touch with them, they served as middle man for Exponenciel Support. They got to experience a day(5) in my shoes of dealing with Exponenciel.

 

That was the kindest way for me describe just one of those experiences....Since you asked. .If you knew about the other experiences, you would for sure understand where I am coming from if this story doesn't paint a clear enough picture.

 

So I found Geoff Bloods - The New Hampton Group products still on market thru Cornerstone. It worked the 1st time on my pc yesterday and easy to setup, cost less, works better. Support was much quicker in response time. This morning this Customer( and all future customers) will be using Account Number Generator from Geoff Blood - TNHG - Cornerstone. The Best Product that = No or Weak Support = No $ale for me. I wish Exponenciel the best and hope I have found the new solution.

Like a famous guy once said; Can't we all just get along? I hope so, some day. God bless all. FSBill

Hello Mike,

There is something lacking, that I am looking for.

I Plan on trying Account Number Generator by Platinum CRM ( The New Hampton Group Product )

http://www.actplatinum.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=ACTCOOL 

 

Do you recommend Acct Nbr Generator ? or know of any other option?

Do you sell or promote a similar add-on?

Thank you. Smiley HappyFSBill

I don't to many add-on vars that do better support than Gilles ... but, most ACCs would know and support his products and might provide a more individual support for you

I've never had a problem getting hold of Gilles ... but, I guess stuff happens - and Geoff was a great guy and Scott (at Cornerstone) as on-the-ball. It's a good this about ACT! that the community is vibrant and gives options.

BTW: I went to have a look at your product ... but no demo on the automation page:

You get the lady talking ... at the end, she says to click play on the video to see it - it's just a 9sec "Mascot Pictures"
