You can convert contacts from a selected list of contacts. Simply choose the contact and all the fields, activities and history are converted into Outlook.

Group Conversion
You can select contacts belonging to an ACT! group and convert only the group.
State-of-the-art duplicate checking
When you first want to convert your ACT! database into an existing Outlook contact folder, we check for corresponding contacts according to the following criteria
·Email Address.  
·First and Last Name and City  
·Company Name and City  

Only when these criteria fail do we create a new contact.

Once the first conversion has been made, ACT-To-Outlook Professional keeps a 1-to-1 match between the ACT! database and the corresponding Outlook item so that no duplicates are ever created.

Outlook Overflow Checking
Due to Outlook's restrictions on the size of the folder (16K items), ACT-To-Outlook Pro will automatically create new folders during the conversion so that Outlook does not crash.

Background Support
Setup ACT-To-Outlook Professional to work in the background at scheduled times using the Windows Scheduler. Let our software do the work when you are not in the system.
