You can take your business data with you on a portable computer whenever you work away from the office. All of your business records are available to you without being connected to your network or the computer on which the database is located.
In this step, you can create a copy of the remote database, or offline database on your computer, so that you can continue working with Accounts, Business Contacts, Opportunities, Business Projects, and marketing activities when you are not connected.
When you create an offline copy of the database, you can continue your work in Business Contact Manager for Outlook whether you are connected to the remote computer or working offline, without interruption. This is especially useful if you are accidentally disconnected from the remote computer on which the database is stored, for example, if the remote computer were shut down. Any changes that you make in your offline copy of the database while you are disconnected are synchronized to the remote database when you are connected again.
This step is optional, and can be done at another time.
On the Configure database for offline use page, click one of the following options:
Yes, create an offline copy of the database Click this option to create a local copy of your Business Contact Manager database.
No, thanks Click this option if you do not want a copy of the database on your computer. You will not be able to work in Business Contact Manager for Outlook when you are disconnected from the computer on which the database is located.
