Act-On FAQs


Why is my list not syncing?
  • Act-On allows only a certain number of calls per hour. You can view Act-On logs in the Admin section by clicking Plug-ins on the left menu, choosing the desired community from the drop down, scroll down to the Act-On plug in and click Logs. This will display queued items.
  • Make sure you don't have two lists or campaigns with the same name. Lists or campaigns with identical names will continually overwrite eachother.
Can I see a sync status for Act-On?

Act-On sync logs can be found by going to Admin --> Plug-ins --> Act-On --> Logs.
