Mimicing the properties of the NOTES tab into a new tab

I have ACT 2013 Pro.  Just got it.

 

I would like to add a new TAB with 8 fields. They would be laid out in one horizontal row, much like that of NOTES or ACTIVITIES.

Entering data into these fields would be a considered a record in the new tab.

Then, as needed, I would like to be able to add a new record, again, like the NOTES tab operates.

It seems that out-of-the-box this cannot be done.

 

Can thus be done either within ACT or via an ADD-ON?

 

Many thanks!

Actually it can be done out of the box provided you want to do the SDK programming to create a user interface. There are a couple of plugins that will provide the user interface. One is Topline Designer and the other is the Durkin product.
