Act! Web API integration – IMPORTANT
Due to the fact that MS Office integration now works via the Act! WEB API it is NOT possible to link Outlook or Word to concurrent multiple Act! databases. This is effective from Act! v22.1 Update 4 onwards and includes Act! v23. This limitation applies to both on-premise Act! CRM and Act! Premium Cloud and Act! SaaS databases.
Using the built-in native functionality if Act! Premium CRM users require connection to multiple databases, then the databases will have to be attached and unattached via the the Outlook integration settings under Tools\Preferences\Email & Outlook Sync. Alternatively we have a special add-in available that will allow merging to Word from Contact and Company records and from multiple databases.
For Act! Premium Cloud/Act! SaaS CRM users the integration must uninstalled and downloaded and re-installed for every database change.
The following link provides an up to date view on when specific version will become obsolete and no longer supported. This applies more to users who have on-premise versions of Act!

- Act! Premium V21 obsolescence date 30th Nov 2021
- Act! Premium V22 obsolescence date 31st Mar 2022

Act! Pro – End Of Life 30 June 2020
The Act! Pro product will no longer be available after 30th June 2020, support for Act! pro will cease on 30th November 2020.
Act! Pro installations will continue to work as normal, however for earlier versions using the Protexis licencing service they will fail to register if you attempt to re-install the software. The SQL Express database is not affected by this so should be safe in the event of any upgrades to the latest version of Act!
