Status: Available in Act! v16

Isn't it about time that ACT! supported field calculations?


In contacts, Companies, Groups and  Sales Opportunities

Would conditional drop-down lists be a step too far?


i.e. the drop-down list that appears in Field A depends on a value in Field B

I like both of these ideas but I think they are 2 separate items here:


1.  Allow a field type or control of calculated field - this should support  numeric calculations as well as string concatenation.


2.  Cascading drop down lists - selection of item B from list 1 resets available values for seleciton in list 2 


Is this what you had in mind?

As a financial advisor I joined this community to post a similar suggestion. I am so used to Excel and all its capabilities for formulas. What a logical move for Sage to build in the ability to add calculation options to fields without an added cost add-in. Version 11+ ?

Both great ideas.  These would get my vote.

The reports do support calculations, I do it all the time.

In ACT 2.0 you can insert time use for each task, and have reports to know how many time you spend in a contact or a group of contact.

it can be automatic using timer or you can insert by hand.


This can be include in the idea. 


You have my vote.

We are looking to calculate gross margin % on a report for the closed-won opportunities.
