ACT! 2010 Service Pack 1 is available!

by on ‎03-05-2010 07:46 AM (10,898 Views)

We’ve heard a lot of great feedback about ACT! 2010 since it was released last fall.  Many of you have commented on some of the features you love in the release and the improvements you’d like to see in the next release.  We’ve been closely monitoring all of this feedback and, thanks to your participation in the ACT! online community, we are proud to announce the release of Service Pack 1 for ACT! 2010, available today.


Some of the improvements we’ve made in this release are:
• Adding a count for the number of contacts in the group and company detail views
• Changing the big easy search button to access keyword search
• Adding some wording at the end of the mail merge wizard to let you know what will happen when you click ‘finish’
• Adding the “location” field to the default task list view


These are just a few of the great ideas we’ve incorporated into ACT! 2010 SP1.  To see all of them, check out the Ideas Forum and look for items tagged with “Available in ACT! 2010 SP1”.


There is no additional cost for ACT! 2010 Service Pack 1.  If you have your ACT! database set to receive automatic updates, you will receive a notification soon to update to this service pack.  If you do not, you can download the update manually by following these steps:

• Launch ACT!
• Go to Help
• Click on ACT! Update
• Dialog boxes will take you through the process step-by-step


Thanks for helping make ACT! better!

This is good news. Just one small point - the auto or manual update doesn't seem to have ever worked in the UK. Why?

With some updates, I assume that it is disabled to prevent users updating their system and then updating the database schema before the admin was ready to update all users.


Might be better if this was off by default and the setup Wizard allowed users to turn it on providing they were aware that some updates must be applied to all systems and sync server (if using one)... or an option to notify users if they are the Database Admin when an update is available


Not sure if that's the reason here as I downloaded the update before it was on the update server used for updating this way
