that the ACT dialer can perform.
When there are too many dial contacts, they obviously flood the ACT screens with
the details of incoming and outgoing calls. If you have an ACT dialer and there
is an incoming call coming in, you can immediately identify the caller, because
the contact’s record is displayed on a pop-up window. After each call
you can clear the activities by using the ACT dialer’s Scheduled Call Lists.
In this way it is extremely easy to maintain your database for both Scheduled Calls
With the help of the ACT dialer in combination with your computer, you can
use Skype for both incoming and outgoing calls. If you have wireless synchronization
with any handheld device, the ACT dialer creates activities for unanswered incoming
calls and sends them directly to your PDA.
If you want to Schedule Activities in the future, just do it with a click.
In this way ACT dialer can reschedule your activities for the next business day.
The ACT dialer also enables you to use your PBX or switchboard to identify and record
external and internal calls. Also, if you require a secondary contact’s
information, the ACT dialer can help you to display it as part of the Call Contact
pop-window, if it is associated with the primary contact.
Functioning of incoming
If you are using the phone without a headset and a call comes in, the ACT dialer
confirms the contact with a mouse click, and it starts the timer, displays the contact
and creates a history. If you are using a headset, you have to click on the
contact to accept the call, and the ACT dialer activates starting of the timer and
making of a history entry. If you do not accept the call, the ACT dialer logs
in the history and an activity, like a telephone call, is created.
The operating systems with the ACT dialer are with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows
Server 2003 and XP Tablet PC. The languages used are English and German.
The general requirements in combination with the ACT dialer are the ACT series with
a telephone system, USB or network connection or Skype.
A scheduled outgoing call is made from the to-do list in the ACT dialer.
If you click on the call, the contact is immediately opened. In this way the
ACT dialer displays the activity and creates a log. If you cannot reach the
contact, the activity is postponed. On the other hand, if you make an unplanned
call from the contact, a web site or an email, the ACT dialer automatically creates
a log. Again, if you cannot reach the contact, a new activity is created.
