Act! Licensing Changes - FAQ

Beginning with Act! v19.1, entitlement for Act! Premium will be enforced at the .x version level (e.g. 19.0, 19.1, 19.2, etc.)

Q.  Why the change for Act! Premium?
A.    With the move to subscription, customers are entitled to the most current software only if they are actively subscribed. The nature of the .x releases is different under this more frequent release cadence, in that each release may contain a combination of subscriber exclusive new features, services, and product enhancements.

February Product Deep Dive

As part of our continuing monthly Deep Dive series, this month we'll be focusing on Act4outlook, the Primary Contact Tool, and Act4CASL. The webinar will be hosted by Michael Kadlub and James Young, and is scheduled for Wednesday, February 22nd at 3PM EST. 

This webinar is obviously free to attend, and we'll be having a draw for five Act4outlook licenses, and everyone that registers and attends the Deep Dive will be eligible to win.

Register here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/9080451298946829315


The agenda will include:

  • Act4outlook: Dramatically enhance your Act! - Outlook integration with Act4outlook - the powerful Actcessory that allows you to easily share contact and calendar items between the two programs, and empowers your inbox to perform Act! lookups. 
    Act4Outlook is the robust integration you've been looking for without the system overhead.

  • Primary Contact Tool: Ever want to assign a primary contact for a company, and then update the dynamically linked company with the primary contact details? The Primary Contact Tool can help. After installation you'll be able to select any primary contact within a company, and push the contact fields up to the linked fields of the Company, rather than the other way around. And the Primary Contact Tool will deselect the old Primary if you select a new one.
  • Act4CASL: This product is an "Opt-in Manager" to help ensure your marketing emails only go to those who have given you permission to send them. 
    It is a software application & online service that sends pre-written opt-in request emails to all your contacts, and then syncs their responses (accepted or denied) back to your database - and it does it quickly and easily with no merge mail, HTML, or Outlook experience required!

Free Actcessories help you Act! better

Free is good.

This is why Keystroke has developed a number of useful free "Actcessories" to make using Act! just a little easier. Unlike a lot of freeware, these applications are not time-bombed or throttled in anyway, and offer genuine value to most Act! users.
The full list of free Actcessories can be found HERE, but the following represent a brief breakdown of some of our favourites:

  • Contact GUID2Field: GUID2Field is an Actcessory for copying the unique ID of contact records to another contact table field. The contact GUID is not normally visible in the Act! database, but it is an essential field for exporting data from your database and then importing it again.
  • Keystroke Koncatenator, as the name implies, take the values from two fields and concatenate them into a third field, with the addition of an optional separator. Great for cleaning up address fields or any types of data fields that need to be combined into one without the headache of exporting the data from Act!, then using Excel to concatenate them, only to have to import them back into Act! again.
    Do it all in one step with the Keystroke Koncatenator
  • Open quote monitor (Navlet): Inspired by real life need,the open quote monitor puts a field on the home screen that alerts you to whether there is an open opportunity for that contact. This is intended to help with sales teams where reps could accidentally quote a customer that is already working with another rep.
  • The Opplet: Fuel your pipeline quickly with the Opplet by creating new opportunities with a few mouse clicks. Perfect for people that quickly need to add placeholder opps and get back to work.
  • Postpone Reboot: If you have to install an application like Act!, and your computer asks you to restart first, "Postpone Reboot" can help. It makes a small edit to the registry to remove that prompt and allow you to safely install your application, and then it removes the registry change with a single mouse click.
  • Fix for modem message when launching Act!: Many users are frustrated by the "configure modem" display window that pops up every time they launch Act!, and countless little tricks fail to cure this irritating delay.
    This regdump was designed to modify the registry to solve this problem. It is not an installer, but rather a registry dump that requires the user to have local admin privileges on the computer they run it on.
  • Copy from Character to Memo Field: If you find that you need to convert an existing character field to a memo field to support more text, you'll quickly discover Act! doesn't support this. Nor does it support copying the character field data to a new memo field, which could be a problem if you've been entering data into the old field for a while. Copy from Character to Memo Field solves that problem, as it does precisely what it's name suggest
