We have Act6.0 @ our office and installed on our sales staffs laptop. The DB resides on a network shared folder. I would simply run a sync and send the sync file to the sales guys.... really simple and efficient.
We upgraded to Act10 and first thing I notice is that the DB HAS to be on a local drive.. called ACT support and they said to copy the pad file to the network shared and that's it.. tried it and it that seem to have done the trick.. the local user don't know where the DB resides.
However, how the hell do I create the sync filenow. . I liked the 6.0 version and how it created the sync file to a specific folder.. so easy.
thx for any inputs.

To create sync with the standard product, read this ACT! Knowledge Base article - http://tinyurl.com/5ax59w

Yes, the publisher needs tohave ACT! open and logged in to sync unless you have the Premium version. While the old email or shared folder sync could be simple, the new sync is much more reliable
