Back in the day new software used to come in a box along with a CD and instruction manual. Although that ship has sailed a long time ago, that doesn’t mean that you no longer have a source for learning about your new purchase. In fact, there are more sources for learning about Act! than there were back in the days of the “boxed” purchase.
Act!’s help menu is, pardon the pun, extremely helpful. Here are a few of my favorite items that you can access directly from the Act! product. Several of the solutions will take you out to the Internet; for your convenience I’ve included the links to the URL’s as well.
Finally, if you looking for an answer to an Act! question, or would just like to “bounce” an idea off of another Act! user, you might want to check out the Act! Community Forums.
The Act! community forums are monitored by SwiftPage staff, Act! users and Act! Certified Consultants and are designed as a place where you can post questions, share your thoughts about the Act! product (both good and bad) and generally garner great insight into Act! usage.
A great example of the power of the Act! Community Forums can be found in Roy Laudenslager, one of the Tech Bender’s Act! Certified Consultants. Roy was recently honored for the third time in 2 years for his contributions to the Act! Forums. Roy’s unique experience with the Act! report writer allows him to offer solutions to report questions that literally no one else can answer.
You’ll often find that with Act! there is more than one way to solve a problem, and more than one place to find a solution. I know the above solutions will provide you with just the solution you are looking for!
