Converting attachments to shortcuts...

Hello,

 

I'm using act2010 premium and  I had a couple of questions:

 

Is there a way to replace attached files with shortcuts on a whole database scale? My problem is that our attachments folder is getting out of hand. I already have a second folder where all of the files are saved. This will also solve an issue that we're having where the files are getting updated but not the attached files.

 

Any help is much appreciated... 

 

Thank You!

Act! does not have a built in conversion utility for this, although there may be some kind of an add on kicking around...

 

That said, can't you just stop attaching the files and save them as shortcuts.  This won't convert what you have, but at least you won't be adding to the folder...

We have stopped. I'm interested in preserving the continuity of 4 thousand linked documents so if any questions arise on these records I have the information available. Otherwise, I get to hear it every time the boss has to lift a finger to click and search for the related files...
