February 28th - Handheld Contact for Android 3.0.3

Features
  • Caller ID: Automatically see the name of Act! Contacts when they call you on your iPhone. Handheld Contact no longer requires contact export to enjoy caller ID.
  • HHC Secure+: A misplaced device or unauthorised user is a serious risk to your organisation. HHC Secure+ utilises HIPAA-compliant security features to protect your organisation’s Act! data falling into the wrong hands. Available with new subscriptions or as an upgrade for your existing subscription.
  • Monthly Task List Filter: You can now filter your Handheld Contact Task List to only show activities from the current month. Selective Contact Export
  • Default launch screen: Choose your favourite landing page in Handheld Contact, and this new build will load with it by default whenever you launch the app
  • One-press E-mail invitations: Schedule an Activity in Handheld Contact and with a single press—just like Act!—create an e-mail invitation to associated contacts. Recipients will seamlessly see events in their calendar if they accept.
  • Double the detail in Notes, History, and Activities: ​ The Regarding field in Activities and Notes as well as the Details field in Histories now support double the content — up to 2000 characters.
  • Business card scanning integration: ​Seamlessly scan business cards and add contacts to Handheld Contact with CamCard or other similar card scanning apps (The card scanning app must have the ability to interact with accounts added to your device).
  • New Activity Defaults: ​Configure defaults for Activity Type, Priority, Alarm, Duration, and Timeless fields and Handheld Contact will pre-set these for you when scheduling a new Activity.
Other Improvements
  • Fixed issue that may have prevented a user from scrolling through text in the Home address field.
