Background Processing
Top  Previous  Next


ACT-To-Outlook Professional can be run in the background if the command -Background is passed to it.
The best way to do this is to add this command to the Windows Scheduler and run the software periodically.
Here's an example of a command line that would start ACT-To-Outlook Professional in the background:

To Convert All the Contacts:  
C:\Program Files\ACT-To-Outlook Pro\act2opro50.exe –B -A -V -M

To Convert a Stored Group  
C:\Program Files\ACT-To-Outlook Pro\act2opro50.exe –B -G -V -M

To Convert a Stored Lookup:  
C:\Program Files\ACT-To-Outlook Pro\act2opro50.exe –B -L -V -M
 
To Convert the calendar:  
C:\Program Files\ACT-To-Outlook Pro\act2opro50.exe –B -N -V -M
 
This instructs ACT-To-Outlook Professional to process all contacts in background mode. The following options are available to ACT-To-Outlook Professional
-B - Process the contacts in the background  
-V - Enable verbose processing  
-G - Convert using the A2O Group settings  
-L - Convert using the A2O Lookup settings  
-A - Convert All (no filtering)  
-C - Convert the current contact  
-K - Convert the current ACT! lookup.  
-N - Convert calendar items only  

Note: Make sure that ACT-To-Outlook Professional is working properly before scheduling for background processing.
