ACT offers four main ways to view your schedule: the daily, weekly and monthly calendars, and the task list. You can filter the type of activities you want to see on the calendars and the task list. I use my calendars to view my meetings and my task list to view just my phone calls. I never use ACT’s to-dos because I feel that if it’s worth doing then I schedule a meeting to get it done. I often schedule meetings with myself to complete projects.
Durkin Computing offers a variety of ACT add-ons that makes ACT work better. I currently use Task List Plus, Contact List Plus and Home Page Plus. I have two monitors on my desk (side by side) and I love using Task List Plus on one screen and ACT on the other as I’m making my scheduled phone calls.
