Contact GUID2Field

GUID2Field is a freebie for copying the unique ID of contact records to another contact table field. The contact GUID is not normally visible in the Act! database, but it is an essential field for exporting data from your database and then importing it again. The Contact GUID field will ensure everything maps to the appropriate contact during import. Conventional methods of using contact names or email fields are not nearly as accurate and can cause duplicate data to be imported.

OppHistory4Act!

Something that annoys Act! users is that if you create a History record for an Opportunity, it doesn't automatically link that History to the Contact record. We've created a simple plugin for Act! that fixes this. Simply install the plugin, and then when you create a History record for an Opportunity, it will automatically link that History to the Contact (or Contacts, if more than one) that are attached to that Opportunity. Simple!

Copy from Character to Memo Field

If you find that you need to convert an existing character field to a memo field to support more text, you'll quickly discover Act! doesn't support this. Nor does it support copying the character field data to a new memo field, which could be a problem if you've been entering data into the old field for a while. Copy from Character to Memo Field solves that problem, as it does precisely what it's name suggest.
