Auto refresh addon for ACT!                
 
This FREE add-on was developed to fix speed issues when databases have hundreds or thousands of non-cleared activities. This could arise from a data conversion or import but also could occur if the users where not clearing activities from the calendar. Native ACT does not heavily penalize performance for non-cleared activities until third party products like Calendar View Plus or Task List Plus are installed. These add-on use the ACT OLEDB reader to list activities in the ACT interface. The OLEDB reader has large performance penalties for non-cleared activities. Using this tool will dramatically increase performance of these add-ons.
To install the "Manage Bulk Activities" add-on click on the [Download Now] button, close ACT!, run the installer and restart ACT!.

 
Auto refresh addon for ACT!                
 
This FREE addon was developed to fix the text box alignment in ACT!. It forces the text boxes to display the first part of the character rather than the last part when the text string is longer than the width of the text box. I created this screen shot of the before and after. The text boxes whose data is longer than the text box width do not display the left most characters of the Company or Contact fields. With Left Align for ACT! by Durkin installed you can read any field from the left most position if the text string is longer than the text box without increasing the size of the field.

This FREE add-on for ACT which disables ACT!’s ability to get the updates from the ACT.com web site without re-configure your firewall. This add on for ACT! will disable the auto update feature by changing the internal ACT! URL so that it is not able to connect to the FTP site.

ACT! tries to get the update by one of two mechanisms. Both are disabled:
1) When the users go to the HELP menu and select "ACT! Update..."
2) On ACT startup after a predetermines period of time such as "every 90 days"

If the users go to the "ACT! Update..." menu they will see the yellow popup which reads. "Connect error" "Please try again later" .
