Albert Einstein famously said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” But what if you do the same thing over and over again and want the same results? I’d call that a solid process. How about automating it? I’d call that smart. A Smart Task, to be exact. Act! Smart Tasks allow you to create a series of common and connected automated steps, such as scheduling an activity, sending an email, or sending an Act! emarketing campaign. Each Smart Task also defines when a step should be performed and who the Smart Task can be scheduled for, and can be run manually, automatically based on a trigger, or scheduled to run in regular intervals.
Let Act! help you save some time (and your sanity!) with Smart Tasks. Check out this video tutorial that details the basic steps to creating and running a Smart Task. Looking to dive deeper? Download the Act! Smart Tasks white paper.
