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 #7):
Outlook allows you to enter and save a WEB PAGE ADDRESS for each Contact.
This is very useful, for several reasons.
First, it allows me to save MY OWN web page address and embed it into my Contact-Information; if I send someone a VCard from Outlook containing my contact-information, my personal work-website link will be embedded in that VCard.
Secondly, a great many of my Contacts are, like me, self-employed and have their own business web-pages. Keeping the address of their business website allows me to stay in closer touch with the, as well as to routinely check their website and note what changes have been made recently and comment on them; it’s another reminder to them that I am staying in contact with them and paying attention to what is going on with them.
I would like to see the following changes / additions made:
Add the capability to the CONTACT panel – ‘DETAIL’ View to input and display multiple website links / URLs for each Contact, e.g match and surpass Outlook’s functionality.
