I may have misunderstood your query so this may not work

Try (untested)

Helper column

in B1

in C1

Copy / Paste Special / Paste Values back into column C

Sort column C ascending
delete all blank rows as they contain "added notified" and you dont want them

The split data would be the name in one column and activity in one column. Am I right?

Excel 2003
Cell Formulas
B1=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("!",A1)),MID(A1,FIND("!",A1,2)+1,FIND(" - ",A1,FIND("!",A1,2))-FIND("!",A1,2)-1),LEFT(A1,FIND(" - ",A1)-1))
C1=MID(A1,FIND(" - ",A1,FIND(B1,A1))+3,LEN(A1))
