Sync Set up Help

Hello,

 

I am setting up my database for the first time, I have 4 users on the program.  Is there a way to put the main database in a shared file so that the main database can be updated by anyone, at all times?  If I house the main database on my laptop, my team members are not able to update the main database unless my computer is online.  Any suggestions?

The database needs to be hosted on a computer, so ideally you want to host on a computer that is on at all times, i.e. a server.

 

To host the database on a server (or any other PC) act will need to be installed. For help sharing a database or backing up a database and restoring it to another computer (copying and pasting a database does not work) see the act knowledgebase.

Can the main database be placed on a shared file on a server? Will that solve the problem? If so, how do you do that?
