synchronize ACT on 2 laptops?

hi everyone!

I have two different laptops that I use....I moved my ACT from one to the other as I though it would work out better but it is not Smiley Sad 

Is there a way to synchronize the 2 if the laptops are on the same network?

I keep trying to call customer support and hold for like 45minutes so figured I would try this!

Thank you in advance for you help Smiley Happy

Hi jf and welcome to the ACT Community


Do a quick search in ACT's Help:


Setting Up and Maintaining Database Synchronization


That will take you through the process step by step.


In the Knowledgebase, there is a pretty good article: 


Hope this helps.

Re: synchronize ACT on 2 laptops?

Hi jf,


If you follow John's steps, it should only take you a few minutes to get sync setup.


One of the gotchas you'll want to look for is the windows firewall on your master/publisher machine.  You'll either need to add an exception or turn off the windows firewall for ACT! sync to work.


Good luck!
