On the old version of ACT I was able to Sync different databases on the same computer.
This option is gone now that I updated to the 2011.
I used it to make a copy to sync with my Black Berry because I found that using the companion link sync many times erased/changed contacts from both platforms.
This feature is must. I was told I can only sync a database sitting on a different computer
What difference does it make where the database is located?
thanks for listening
I love the fact you have incorporated syncing with outlook into Act 2011. I have a suggestion that would help my situation and possibly other users. I previously used Double Look and with their system the lasted edit to either data base was updated in the other. I travel and am out of the office quite a bit and update on my phone, I in turn sync blackberry to outlook the to Act, as well as in Act when in office. With your new operation the sync only allows to select to keep Act data of Outlook data not whatever is latest. I discovered this when I had been working with Stanley Moras in your customer service. We discovered several duplicates in Outlook I in turn deleted those items from outlook performed a sync and they were not deleted fro Act as the setting was to keep act contact. My suggestion would be not to keep either Act or Outlook rather keep the most recently modified.
I may be reached for further comment at firstname.lastname@example.org or 425-418-5018.
Recently I have been using the share with feature in either activities or opportunities. I've noticed that the interaciton with the lookup feature is not consistent with other lookup features. For example, in other lookups, once the target is identified, one can hit the CR and it will move the selected item to the right side of the box.
When using lookup with the Share With option, the type ahead feature just highlights either the first in the series or the actual one, but then when the CR is hit, the box closes without moving over the item.
In the Contact List you have a count on the toolbar so you can easily see how many contacts are included in the lookup.
I find this really useful but am starting a New Database and will be working with Companies as the main view - it would be really useful if a similar count feature could be included in the Company List view.
I have been using ACT since the mid 1990's and I am currently using Act 6.0.3. I am currently using Outlook 2002 SP3 for my e-mail only. My version of act has a button that I installed as an add on (Many years ago) in Outlook to link to my e-mails to my ACT database
I just bought a laptop with Windows 7 ... so I am now forced to go with a new version of ACT. I am asuming that I must go with 2011. From reading on the web, it apppears that the only version of outlook that works in conjuction with ACT is Outlook 2007. Is this correct? Where do I get the add on button, so that i can attach my e-mails to my contacts?
Appointment: to be able to have a place to add: things to bring. Ex: projector etc...
When we mouseover activities date in tasklist, to show a calendar. And also tell in how many open day't it will happen.
Activity series: should have details for activities. And be able to sort better.
Actualy when on the tasklist, you clear a activity, the cursor return to the first on the top.
I want it to reapear on the next activity under the one I just closed. Anoying.
It's passed 5pm, I create new activity. The company is closed, The new activity created are created for the next open day, according to setting - time the compagny close.
