I have act 2011 pro
when syncing from act to outlook the end result that is shown in the appointment field of outlook is information that was pulled from the "regarding" field of schedule activity popup menu of act.
I know I can ADD addtional info to the "regarding info field" BUT ACT should pull in the contact name PLUS the " regarding to" information.
I do not want to ADD a contact name to the "regarding field" just so it will show up in outlook.
THIS IS A BIG FLAW IN DESIGN OF ACT SYNC -- it makes no sense NOT to show a contact name!
It'd be nice to have the ability to MAP what your want to show up in outlook appointment fields.

I use companionlink for this and it functions as you might expect. worth testing I think as it I have been using it for a number of years now and much better than the inbuilt Outlook synchronisation.

I agree having the contact name at the front of the activity description would be helpful, but the ACT! activity sync is functioning within the normal Outlook method. When scheduling an activity directly in Outlook, unless you enter the contact name in the Subject line - it will only show up in the Scheduling Assistant section of the Outlook activity.
This would be a good candidate to submit through the Share Your Ideas board.
