I apologize in advance if some of my suggestions are redundant, or if there are alrewady work-arounds or ways of implementing my suggestions on an individual, custom basis at present -- I have not had time to go through all of the suggested changes & improvements here yet.
I currently use Outlook 2003 simultaneously with ACT! For Real Estate v12. I would like to eventually be able to discontinue needing to use Outlook entirely and rely completely on ACT! For Real Estate, but the full Outlook functionality is not there yet.
I would like to see the following changes / additions / improvements made within ACT! For Real Estate (and possibly, in ACT! in general, if others think they're useful).
CONTACTS panel - 'DETAIL' View (SUGGESTION #1):
ACT! allows me to enter data for the Contact's CONTACT NAME and COMPANY.
Outlook does as well, however Outlook also provides a field for entering the Contact's JOB TITLE.
I would like to see this added in ACT! as well. Knowing what the person actually 'DOES' is as useful for me as knowing 'WHO' they work for.
