Calculations in ACT! are Made Easy - Abacus Calculated Fields for ACT! 10.1 Released
Calculations in ACT! Are Made Easy
Calculations have been the missing link in ACT! for years. However a small add-on from ActPresentation promises to solve this problem elegantly once and for all!
ActPresentation today announces Abacus Calculated Fields for ACT! 10, the latest version of the add-on for ACT! by Sage CRM software. The new version supports ACT! 2008, as well as ACT! 2005, ACT! 2006 and ACT! 2007.
Abacus Calculated Fields lets users make any calculation using ACT! database fields. All you need to do is select a field on the layout using the context menu and write a calculation formula. Calculated fields will be always up-to-date because calculations are re-run automatically every time when you modify the value of one of the fields that's part of formula.
The program is able to copy fields, manipulate data and produce the results based on the data within other fields - all this is possible from a friendly interface. You can easily calculate the value of any ACT field from the values in other fields, constants, functions and statements.
There is a choice of over 80 functions: mathematical, string, datetime, financial, etc. Using these functions, you can make calculations in Contact, Group or Company fields and perform mortgage/loan calculations. Calculations can be done either manually or automatically. Along with simple calculations, you can build complex conditional ones using "IF" and "CASE" statements. It's possible to assign formula to a field to get a field calculated automatically.
Another nice touch in the add-on is automatic data entry. It'll help you to fill in up to 100 fields in one operation, rather than enter the same data over and over again.
Once installed, the ACT! add-on starts to work right out of the box.
