Linking contacts to calendar.

I'm a wedding photographer so my work days are on weekends. I have a field called 'Status' on my layout. It has a pulldown that has 'INQUIRY' 'BOOKED' 'CANCELLED'. When a customer first calls they are an inquiry, then booked, then maybe cancelled. As I fill in the contact sheet, is there a way that Act! can somehow link to it's own calendarand mark the wedding date as an 'ALL DAY EVENT' with the bride and groom's names and also if they are 'Inquiries' 'Booked' or 'Cancelled'? Maybe some other notes from the contact layout form? I want to do this so I can then link Act! to outlook and outlook to my PDA and have the booking/inquiry/cancellation details with me when mobile. -Frankie

You need to create an activity when they book. You can use the Banner check box so it highlights the day
 
What PDA?

When you get it, you might try the trial of Handheld Contact to put your ACT! data on the device. It's definately the best ACT!-like experiance
