How do I share Activities for an Outlook 2003 Contact?

In Outlook 2003 we have activities associated with many contacts. We need to have a department  admin access them and transcribe them into another app, but selecting the Activities tab on someone else's contact gets the following message:

"No folders are defined for the Activities tab of contacts in this contacts folder. Right click on the contact folder, and then click Properties. On the Activities tab, set the folders that should be searched for items associated with this contact."

There is not an activities tab in the properties window of someone else's Contacts folder, regardless of the viewer's permissions for that folder.

How do we do this?

    I believe that only the original owner of the folder can see the activities tab to make this change.
