How It Works

Sync Act! contacts, calendar activities, contact notes and histories with your Google, Gmail, or Google Apps account. CompanionLink installs on the PC and syncs Act! data to your Google/Gmail account. Two-way sync is fully supported so you can make changes to data anywhere.

CompanionLink can sync your tasks to either Google Tasks or Google Calendar. More info .

CompanionLink syncs ACT! contact notes and histories

Contact note items will appear on the handheld device prefaced by the text "(Note)".

Contact histories will appear prefaced by the text "(History)".

To enter a history item on the handheld device, create a contact note prefaced by text in the following format: "m/d/yyyy (History)".


1/18/2011 (Note) Meeting was held on merger of two...

Any text entered into the contact note that is not formatted as a history item will sync to ACT! as a contact note.

By default, CompanionLink only syncs contact notes from ACT!. You can enable synchronization of ACT! contact histories in CompanionLink, under Advanced Settings -> Note Options.

Sync your PC tasks with Google Tasks

CompanionLink offers two options to sync tasks with Google:

  1. Tasks sync to Google Tasks. Your PC tasks sync to Google's native task list, however, Google currently does not sync tasks with any device.
  2. Tasks sync to Google Calendar. Your PC tasks sync to Google Calendar as untimed events. This allows your tasks to sync with your device via the calendar.

Both options are available in CompanionLink 5. If you rely heavily on tasks, we recommend using one of our other sync methods that syncs tasks directly with your device.
