In the meantime, I suppose you could set up a Group named "Philadelphia area", associate activities to this Group, and then later filter by it. But haven't tried that myself. 

 

I like the concept of keeping location separate from Groups, and have an editable drop-down menu.  This will make it easier to use Act! with methodologies such as David Allen's GTD that utilize contexts for actions (@home, @office, @phone, @Wal-MArt, @restroom, etc.)

Absolutely Barry. I've been wondering why not for years! Glad you brought it up.

And while we're at it, lets have the ability to rename "Location" to something else.

Why rename it?

 

The Location field was really added for the Outlook integration as Outlook asks for it

Why rename it?.... 'cos it's about the only field in the Task dialogue that can potentially be used for something else... ... such as Mileage, Phone Number, Address, or Industry Sector which you might want in order to sort your task list, or you might even want it to appear in your Outlook calendar.

but Jeff, Outlook needs the Location field....

 

The answer for you would be to add an addiotnal field

Location is great as location! I could never understand why it didn't qualify for a Drop-down (with an auto-fill/type-ahead). I have a selection of coffee shops at central locations I often use for meetings and some regular corporate locations that I find myself typing over and over. Even just "Their board room", "My Office" etc helps, then I can tell at a glance where I am supposed to be. Bring it on!

BTW, why doesn't the Company field in the Secondary Contact get a Company drop-down???

I vote for making Activities a top-level entity in it's own right, just like Opportunities. We could then customise the layouts and have as many new fields as we wish.

And skip sync to Outlook and mobile phones?

 

Oh, I can see that happening :-)
