Office 2010 & ACT!

Aug 28, 2010 | General

Previously on this blog we discussed that Act! 2010 is  not compatible with Office 2010.  While still not fully supported with Act! 2010, Office 2010 users do have some options (see next paragraph).  This is good news for Act! 2010 users but even better news is that Sage Act! 2011 fully supports MS Office 2010 32-bit edition.  For more information on Sage Act! 2011, check out http://www.aspen-tech.com/SageACT2011.html.

This new Act! Knowledge Base Article (Act! by Sage Compatibility With MS Office 2010) details the options available to Act! 2010 users and how to set it up.  Basically, here’s what you can and can’t do when you have Act! 2010 and Office 2010:

Can…

  • Send email from Act! using Outlook 2010
  • Record email history to Act!
  • “Quick Attach” messages to Act!
  • “Attach to Act! Contacts”

Can’t…

  • Integrate the Act! Calendar with Outlook 2010
  • Export to Excel 2010
  • Use Word 2010 as your Word Processor
