Could we have a product table?
Would make it possible to work out how many Widgits, PN12345 did we sell last month.
For those that use Sage Simply Accounting, Sage Peachtree etc. - how about allowing the Product table to import/synchronize from the table in the accounting system?
That way, we would build the Products list in the accounting system, and then just IMPORT it into Act!, thus reducing the need for duplicate data entry.
I agree. Part of the reason we bought ACT was because it is suppose to be integrated with SA. We assumed that an inventory "Item" in SA would be useable in ACT. We are rather dismayed that we now have to enter our entire inventory as "Products" in ACT.
Come on SAGE.
Thanks for the suggestion. Is it accurate to say that you're requesting for import/sync from accounting system product list to ACT! without installing an accounting link?
With regards to adding a few more fields in the Product Table - What fields would you add to the Product Table? Are you referring to the Master Product List to add fields to, or adding fields to the Opportunity form?
I'm seeing new clients every week who would get huge benefit from a Product Table in ACT!
It doesn't even have to be anything momentous. Just think Opportunity List View with a check-box for "Show All Products".
Check it, and the list is expanded so there's now a line for every product in each opportunity. The common fields would be duplicated i.e. if there was one opportunity for John Smith which was made up of two products, when the box is checked there are now two lines in the list. Thus..
Opportunity Contact Product Name
Q 10001 John Smith Product A
Q 10001 John Smith Product B
It would then be a doddle to sort by product and export the whole thing to Excel for further analysis.
Come on...you know it makes sense!
(And no, I don't want a dashboard to do this)
Good idea Jeff. I would be very happy if I would have that checkbox for "show all products"
If you click te Kudos box folks it's more likely to happen ;-)
Improvements in way ACT! Handle products are welcome.
Having a table for products (I believe) will make product maintenance a lot easier.
