    easy to learn

    Karen Fredricks has amassed a bunch of handy shortcuts or recipes that can simplify the life of an ACT user. You can treat all this as a great boon if you are a marketing person or even just a manager who has to deal with other companies and the contacts within those.

    Perhaps the most general chapter deals with the Scratchpad. It really is just that. A simple and easy to use pad where you can jot down random items that initially do not fit neatly into any formal ACT database. The point here is purely to record unstructured thoughts or data. While Scratchpad is probably stored in a database, it is better to eschew that view, and just think of it as loose notes. The book starts with discussing it because this is an easy segue into ACT.

    Another chapter talks about the concept of Groups. It is meant to be quite general. A group can be people within a company, or across companies. It can also be people you deal with socially. Your relatives can be in a group too. This is more structured than the Scratchpad, but it also is an easy early use of ACT. The flexibility of what a Group means to you can be a way to gradually learn more about ACT.

    Also, the use of Groups is one of the ways that ACT transcends the limitations of a social networking website. All of the latter [as far as I know] require the contacts to be members, or at least bug them with messages about joining. There is no such constraint with ACT. An ACT Group is your own construct, and the contact information can be email addresses across the entire Internet. Granted, it means that the Group and ACT more generally do not have those snazzy update features of the social networks. You know, where you can see what your 'friends' have just done. But maybe you can live with that lack.

    Speaking of other websites or programs, the book is careful to devote 2 crucial chapters to explaining compatibility with Google and Microsoft Outlook. For example, ACT cannot initiate an email. It seems that the ACT authors took a careful step to avoid replicating this, when email is so readily available at many providers.
