need to update laptop act info?

 I have a few questions.

 

1) I'am trying to update company contacts on my laptop that has act version 9 on it. I have a disk from the main database saved as a zip drive but it will not let me import or restore the info. The person created this disk using as a backup.

 

2) I work from home and use act what is the best way or easiest to update my laptop with new contact / notes and other information from the main database?

 

3) I also need to update the main database from my notes and info stored on my laptop what is the easiest way?

 

 Please keep in mind this is a small company without much money to spend.

 

 Thanks in advance.

Re: need to update laptop act info?

You can sync a remote database to a main database either by syncing through a network or through the internet. To sync though the network, you would need a netowork connection or a VPN. There is a free VPN service called Hamachi which we have found works well with the ACT! sync service. Information to setup this up for syncing with ACT! is in KB 23333.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.
