Revolutionize the way you manage your day with Sage ACT! Scratchpad #SageACT

by on ‎08-30-2011 12:23 PM (5,723 Views)

Forget about conventional paper-and-pen lists that fail to keep you on task. Revolutionize the way you manage your day (business or personal) with Sage ACT! Scratchpad, a convenient, virtual notepad where you can quickly capture impromptu notes, phone numbers, and personal reminders, with or without opening Sage ACT!.


But that’s not the best part. Prioritize and check off items once completed, print the list to take it with you, or push updates into Sage ACT! with just a few clicks. Send them to Sage ACT! as activities, notes, and history, even assign them to contacts. Let’s say you’re working on a proposal for Chris Huffman, but the phone rings, so you get distracted. You quickly jot down a reminder in Sage ACT! Scratchpad. When you have time at the end of your day, you push that activity into Sage ACT! on Chris Huffman’s contact and set an alarm to go off first thing the next morning.


Finally, you can rid yourself of the sticky notes and legal pads that have been cluttering your desk for years and actually get through your to-dos!

Is it possible to bring back items on the scratch pad that I accidentally deleted?  Please help! Thank you!

Unfortunately there is no backup for this utility.

That is not very effective!

I am receiving the message " The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched. To create the source, you need permission to read all event logs to make sure that, the  new source name is unique. Inaccessible logs: Security,"  All I am trying to do is print the scratch pad for boss to take with him.
