If I enable sharing on database, this is real time, I also want to create remote users & sync them...as long as I enabled sharing will synching be real time. Just confused if I should do one or the other, need to make sure that doing in real time. However, we are at diff locations. Myself at one, the other use at another and the host (motherbase/server) still at another.

Therefore, if we are logging onto a server from 2 seperate workstations and 2 locations can we share database, however, if there are changes to contacts, etc. I am assuming that that is where synchronizing comes into play. And if so, how often can we set up synchronizing, by minutes, hour or day? and can we do automatically?

There are two ways as per these ACT! Knowledge Base articles -
I prefer the 2nd as the scheduler runs as a service
You don't want it too often as it might slow the machines (depending on their specs and the internet bandwidth) ...

Thank you soo much! So we will set this up on both remote databases, how about the host computer/server? However, if we just share the database in real time, and set up as remote users as admin or manager will changes to profiles show up, e.g contacts---notes-activities?

I guess, it would of been helpful to indicate that we will be hosted! So, if hosted and reliable server then we share databases, any add/changes if we have admin or manger roles as remote users will be visible on all ends? BTW, thanks so much for your prompt responses!

I guess, I'm a little confused do we NEED the option of syncing if we are working of a server, those changes with a shared database that I was talking about made on the remotes, will the be automatically made on the main database or do we have to sync with all users to see all changes etc.
