Act! Premium Version 16.0.291.0
Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard : Service Pack 1 (64 bit)
Q1 : Can you create two (or more) databases on the same server and have them sync with remote users in the background [ without having the users specific database open in act ] ?
Q2 : Can two databases on the same server background sync specific fields with one another ?
Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Q1a: You can have multiple databases on the same server.
Q1b. ACT won't sync in the background. I haven't seen an addon that would do this either.
Q2. This could be done with a thrid pary program.
Yout might want to look into one database with different user premissions.

Q1. Not with ACT! Pro but yes with ACT! Premium. You need to install the sync server.

It's the remote user database that initiates the synchronisation so as long as you have installed the network synchronisation application on the server, the remote users can synch any time they want.
Also the remote users can use the ACT! scheduler to set up a schedule to automatically synchronise the remote database.

If you're using the premium version, it sounds like you haven't either installed or possibly setup the sync server. Otherwise, or if you are using the pro version, only the open database can sync.

I suspect the sync server isn't installed. Go to start and type in ACT and see if an option for the ACT! sysc server comes up. If not you need to install the sync server.
