Sharepoint sync with GAL
Posted on 2011-02-24
We have a customer that is starting to utilize a Sharepoint 2010 site and wants to upload an Outlook contact list to a site contact list then have that site contact list sync (if possible) with their Exchange 2010 GAL so that all contacts can be pushed to all domain users' Outlook and therefore also available to BES users.
I've done some research on these items and there does seem to be a way to import a contact list into Exchange 2010 using a CSV file and the EMC; and I know you can connect a Sharepoint contact list with Outlook; and I know you can use Access to "import" contacts into a Sharepoint contact list; but those aren't really what I'm looking for.
Does anybody know a straightforward, if not simple, way to perform such management tasks?
