Why has support been removed?
These features were initially developed by Sage UK Ltd for older Act! releases. They are no longer developed or maintained by Act!, and are not tested with the latest versions of Sage Accounts. There are a number of in-market defects and limitations which currently have no solution or workaround.
If you need assistance with issues pertaining to an unsupported product, please refer your questions to an Act! Certified Consultant.

Yes. This is currently planned for our next major version release later in 2017. We do not plan any updates to remove this functionality from Act! v19 or below.
