After completing a successful beta in conjunction with many Act! Certified Consultants, Swiftpage is pleased to announce the release of Act! v22.1 Update 4 on Friday, August 21 to all environments.
New updates & enhancements to Outlook integration with Act! included with 22.1U4:
New workflows with Outlook integration in Act! 22.1U4
We pull the first 100 results alphabetically and then paginate the other results to increase performance. The user also has the ability to search by name,email,company, and group and after they type their search value we pull all contacts related to their search dynamically
New Create Activity Window from the Act! Addin in Outlook.
New Popups or Toasts appear at the bottom right corner of the screen and do not need the user interaction to ‘OK’ which, would stop workflow.
For all the improved addin features to function correctly, the API needs to updated. When Update 4 is applied, the API will be updated to v18.104.22.168. You can check this at: http://localhost/act.web.api/api/system or https://<Cloud URL>/act.web.api/api/system. The Updates and API web pages at Act.com will be updated after release.
To apply Update 4 on Desktop - Run Help > Act! Notifications. Please install the update and familiarize yourself with the new Act! addin windows and Address book. Existing Cloud customers will have to uninstall and re-install Office Integration to benefit from the Update 4 improvements.
