With the release of ACT Premium for Web v16, remote users can now add, edit, or delete fields in their database in a way previously that was not possible. Moreover, web users can also design Layouts, as well.
Two years ago ACT Premium for Web 2012 introduced the ability to manage users through the web interface, and now ACT Premium for Web 16 has increased the functionality much further.
With these changes n mind, we though it might be helpful to recap the difference between what can now be done in the Windows client vs the Web client.
