Active Directory Contact Info Sync with SharePoint

Last Modified: 2012-06-27

We are looking to update all of our users' contact info in Active Directory.  Currently, we have someone keeping everything up-to-date in Outlook Public Folders.  What we'd like to do is have that info moved to SharePoint and have a 2-way sync with Active Directory so SharePoint and Active Directory are both kept up-to-date and we don't have to use the Outlook Public Folder anymore.

Any help would be great with this.  We are currently on Exchange 2010 and SharePoint 2010.

if you have Foundation, you can use http://adselfservice.codeplex.com/
