Custom Categories sync between exchange 2010 and outlook 2011 MAC

Posted on 2012-08-22

Hey there, I have an server with exchange 2010 and I have a sales person in the field which was using a PC and we had outlook 2010 on the laptop and working with a public folder for contacts

In that public folder of contacts, we were able to create and manage custom fields we created back and forth.

My person in the field had his PC laptop fry and is on a MACbook now

We loaded outlook 2011 to the macbook and connected him

We subscribed to the public folder of contacts and can view them however on my PC I can see info we wrote in the categories field, but he cannot.  Nor can my field person see any of the custom fields we created like "mailer out to client" that we used to see together.

How can we get the outlook 2011 to see the custom fields and info?

Thank you

    Unfortunatly this isn't a feature in outlook for mac 2011. So at this moment it's impossible to achieve with it. Maybe in the next version this is built-in. Office for mac doesn't support the creation of this, so you can't see this. Even if it's stored in the exchange server, outlook for mac doesn't know the functions due to that you can't view it.

    If this is a feature you’d like to see in future versions of Office for Mac, be sure to send your feedback by clicking “Help” > “Send Feedback…” in any Office application or by clicking on the link below:

    I know that I already requested it.
