really bugs me there is no EASY way to have a folder show in the documents tab.

I agree.


And while you are at it, I like the option of using shortcuts to a document, but we have got to be given the option of rename within ACT what the document is instead of the long URL which typically is too long to view without expanding the column (and taking extra steps).

Yes I would like to be able to attach a folder as well as a file, so that I can basically have a quick way to get to a clients working folder without having to use an add-on.

What about creating a url field like this:  file://name of contact folder

Click on the link and it will open the folder.

Brian Mowka showed me some code that integrates Drop Box with ACT so you can drag and drop files but needs some work as I could not drill down.  I think Jeremy is working on something for Perfecting ACT to show.  Be nice as then documents are also in the cloud for others to see.  Imagine the press of being able to say ACT integrates with Drop Box!

Please take a look at my new Act! AddOn product called FasterAct.


I believe that my product does what you are asking for.


I have a dedicated View Documents tab in my software, that accomplishes what you are asking for. Please check out my website, download the trial and try it out.


Let me know if this is what you had in mind.
