I need a sales task organizer that prioritizes more

I work from my home office and I am on the phone a good portion of that time when I am not emailing. For years I have used ACT 6.0 but I don't take advantage of the majority of its uses...when I try to make it work for me a little bit more it never works out too well. But it still serves me well as a contact list with notes and printing labels etc - but one thing that annoys me greatly is that I can only prioritize my calls into "High" "Medium" "Low" Normally I don't notice this setback but lately I have been really cranking up my call volume and when I put the call into the future I need a more complicated ratings system, at least from say 1 to 10, but 1 to 25 would be better. I know I can use the "types to show" but I already use those for their intended purposes and I know I can use the colors but that won't make Act prioritize them based on value...

so is there a program that does this or is there a way to make act do this?

thanks for your responses.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
