I have created a Contact list in SharePoint MOS and linked it to Outlook.
This works OK and changes made at either end synch, however I am having problems with Categories.
In Outlook I have created a range of choices in the Categories drop down menu.
Some contacts are allocated to more than one Category.
I cannot replicate this in SharePoint.
In SharePoint the default setting for Categories is a single line of text and I cannot see how to change this to a drop down menu.
'Create a categories column in SharePoint and create it as a choice column with the values you want. This will give you the drop down in SharePoint, then synchronise and I believe it should give you the drop down in outlook as well.'
Creating a new Categories column with a Choice list is fine, but it will not synch with Outlook at all.
The only column that will is the default Contacts column that you add through the Add column from site option. Even if you change the names round only this one synchs.
I tried to edit the properties for the default Categories column but it was not to possible to change if fromSingle line to Choice.
Any more ideas....?
