Act 2009 sharing data across two computers

I can not believe I am the only one with this issue but I can not find an answer on the site soe I am hoping you can help. I am running Act 2009 (11.0.0.367). I currenly have teh program loaded on a large notebook that is clumbersom to use at the desk as qwell as to travel. Since I am looking to make a hardware change I am thinking of going to a desk top at home and a lighter notebook/netbook for travel. My chalange is Act as I havee found now way to conveniently "share" my data across both units. I do have companion link and daja office to sink some information with my android phone ( tht is a whole different story) but now way to sync between two PC's. I am a single used although I did purchase Act 2009 premium.

 

Any suggestions?

[ Edited ]

You should set up synchronization.  Easiest is to just set it up when the two computers are in the office and connected to the same network. Instructions are in KB Article 15192.

 

There are also ways to sync when away from the office and ACT has a HOSTING PROVIDER PROGRAM that can host your database and make it available anywhere.

 

We also have an ACT Virtual Desktop that gives you ACT, MS OFFICE and more in the cloud from anywhere, any device. (hosted solution).  Info Here on ACT Virtual Desktop
