Acting Techniques: Setting Act Calendar Preferences

Please backup your Act CRM database right now.

It happened again. A client contacted me because her computer died and she did not have a backup of her Act database.

You can use the Act scheduler to back up your Act database automatically. If you do not know how to accomplish this please reach out to me so I can show you how and to ensure your data is safe. The backup will create a file called the zip file. Typically, people create that backup file on the hard drive of their computer.

What happens when your computer dies in that zip file is gone?

For years I have used a backup service call Carbonite (www.carbonite.com). If she had used Carbonite and scheduled backups, she would have all her zip files backed up by Carbonite. When she gets a new computer all she would have to do is reinstall Act and restore the most recent backup.

Please backup your Act database daily.
