Making Contact

Act! 3.0 for Windows 95

The top half of Act!'s contact screen displays a contact's name and address. The bottom half has tabs that let you enter different types of information, such as notes, activities, phone number, address and status. With the Lookup function, you can search records by company, contact name, phone number and so on.

Act! lets you plan a call, a meeting or a to-do item. You can review your calendar on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Along with standard reports, such as contacts, you can also create customized lists.

Act! has its own word processor and e-mail modules. Using templates, you can prepare letters, memos or faxes with the contact information filled in. You can feed data to address books, envelopes or mailing labels, and even export information to co-workers who use Act! to synchronize records.

Act! also lets you organize contacts into various groups, create macros to automate routines and redesign the input screens.
