HELP!! can ACT! database capable to sync to mysql database???

Hi everyone, I have some concerns:

 

1. I have a contact registration website (Database: MySQL), can I sync mySQL and ACT Premium v14 for web database?

 

Scenario:

I go to www.CustomerRegistrationExample.com, from the website I've added a new contact is it possible that the new contact will be reflected automatically to ACT database?

 

I appreciate your answers.

 

Thanks

You would need to write the interface yourself or have someone write it for you.  I don't know of one off hand but it's possible that someone has already written one.

Lloyd,

If contacts are automatically added to Act! from a website, have you considered how you will handle duplicate entries?

I can scan act for deduplication, but my main concern is not duplicates but is it possible to add new contacts automatically from a website, or the only way is to import them from act?
