Hi Experts
I am trying to set up MS BCM 2010. I have 4 Users and we all have our own version of BCM loaded on our PC's. We use exchange server for our emails etc.

I also have a laptop which sometimes I am signed on to at the same time as the desktop PC.
I would like all 4 of us to share the same contact list via BCM but I am not sure where to start to set it up.

Can anyone point me in the direction of some simple set up reading?...Or telll me what I need to do? :-)
Many thanks
Marion

Take a look at the BCM for Outlook 2010 Database Tool, it will allow you to centrally share BCM info.

It can be loaded on desktop or server version of Windows.  See System Requirements for supported operating systems.  I'd recommend you install it on network server, or at a minimum a desktop which will always be available.
