New Features - Build 3
 1. Completely redesigned Act! for Web integration. It no longer requires that you are self-hosted or the additional installation on your IIS server. QuoteWerks can now integrate directly with all versions of Act! that can be accessed through a browser. The integration with Act! for Web includes the ability to search for contacts, create/update Opportunities, create/update activities, and upload quote attachments to Act! for Web. DataLink is supported for Contacts, Companies, Opportunities and Opportunity Products. In the setup window for Act! for Web, the activities priority, ring alarm, duration, and details can have default settings. Attachments and activities can either be saved under the contact or opportunity. If a contact does not have an address, the company address location can be used. Additionally you can attach files to Act! for Web from the PDF Preview window, the Links tab, and the Print window. There is a button on the SoldTo/ShipTo tab to display the contact in Act! for Web, and also links on the links tab that you can click to view the SoldToContact, ShipToContact, BillToContact, and Opportunity in Act! for Web. Additionally, emails sent from QuoteWerks are logged in Act! for Web notes tab. Act! versions 21 and higher are supported with this new integration. The Corporate Edition of QuoteWerks is required to integrate with Act! for Web. [Service Release: 3.16]

 6. On the Print Preview window when choosing to Save as PDF, it used to display a simple file selection dialog, now the SaveFile dialog is displayed giving you more save options. [Service Release: 3.16]

 7. The SaveFile Dialog has a new "[] Append subfolder" option. You can configure this subfolder on the Misc tab of Tools->Options, under "Save File Dialog Append SubFolder". When saving a file on the FileSave dialog, the Append Subfolder option will be generated using this macro. Macros support enables this file name to be different based on information in the document like &DH_SoldToCompany or &SoldToCompany\&DH_DocType. Since the full path is concatenated with these options there is now a preview of the full path on this dialog. Also this dialog will now auto-create any specified folder path if it does not exist. There is also a new option under the Misc.General tab of Tools->My Preferences "Save File Dialog Append SubFolder". When set this will default the "Append" checkbox to checked on the SaveFile Dialog. [Service Release: 3.16]

 8. For ConnectWise Manage users, when converting from Quote to Order if you are using ConnectWise Manage as a Secondary CRM, and on the Settings tab of the ConnectWise Setup, the "Display Export to ConnectWise window on each Save" option is set, the Export to ConnectWise window will now appear after the conversion to order. [Service Release: 3.16]

The whole concept of SoldToAddress1,2,3 individual fields was a QuoteWerks design. Most CRMs would just have a single SoldToAddress with multiple line data in it, so the protocol handler supported passing in a &SoldToAddress and then it would parse out multiple lines. Now you can specify which lines you would like the address data to go to individually. [Service Release: 3.16]

 18. For QuoteValet users, when a quote has been accepted by the customer and you make changes to it, the messages that warns you that QuoteValet will not be updated with these changes now has an option on the dialog of "Don't show me this message again.".
