SQL Server Edition Recommendations
Express is free, but limits processor use to the lesser of a single CPU socket or 4 cores. Memory is also limited to 1 GB, and the size of your data file cannot exceed 10 GB. For this reason, we recommend SQL Standard for any deployment over 20 users or 5 GB in size, allowing for growth. Individual performance may vary based on actual database size, hardware variations, and product usage.

Custom Tables FAQs

Custom Tables make it possible to bring complex data sets, unique businesses processes, and specialised industry practices together in Act! to manage your business. Custom Tables Manager in Act! enables you to embed tables with spreadsheet-like functionality into Act!, so you can track rich, specialised data. But unlike spreadsheets, you can associate individual table entries to Act! contacts, companies, groups, and opportunities for easy reference.

Do you sell multiple products? Do you offer services or sell service contracts? Have you ever missed a renewal date? If you answered yes to any of these questions, your business will benefit from using Custom Tables.

The possibilities are limitless! For example, you can track insurance policy details, product catalogs, mortgage information, or project management dates. You can even keep photos of inventory within Custom Tables.

In Act! list views, Custom Tables look like a spreadsheet within one tab of your database where you can store an infinite amount of data. This makes it easy for managers to view roll-up metrics for things like all product sales for a particular company. You can also view individual details at the contact level like the details of an individual product sold to a particular contact.

Not only are you able to associate individual table entries to Act! entities, you get the benefits of CRM to action on the data—create activities and to-dos, send follow-up emails, engage in informed sales conversations, and more. Action on communications tied to policy end dates, contract renewal dates, upcoming warranty expirations, or even birthdays tracked in Custom Tables.

Yes the Industry Template Library includes templates for Consulting, Event Planning, Insurance, Loans, Mortgage, Product Inventory, Projects, Real Estate, Service, Software, and Support.

Custom Tables Manager is available at extra cost of £96 + vat per user – annual susbcription
