Act! Requires Time Update

Dear ACT! Customer,

We are writing to you, a registered ACT! customer, to inform you that a critical update may be required to maintain the accuracy of activities in your ACT! database.

The United States Congress passed the Energy Policy Act, which changes the dates for both the start and end of Daylight Saving Time effective in Calendar Year 2007. The Daylight Saving Time (DST) will start at 2:00 AM on March 11 th (three weeks earlier) and will end at 2:00 AM on November 4th (one week later).

Microsoft has recently released updates to Windows® regarding the Daylight Saving Time changes. In order to ensure ACT! 2005 (v 7), ACT! 2006 (v 8) and ACT! 2007 (v 9) activities correctly adapt to the DST changes, ACT! users need to run a special ACT! utility program.
Please use the following chart to determine if you are affected and need to run the ACT! Daylight Saving Time Utility.

We hope you found this information helpful and self explanatory. Please go to http://www.act.com/daylightsavingtime for further information and instructions on how to receive and use the ACT! DST Utility.
