Hello Experts

i have received a weird request from my boos,
he wants that every contact that a number off people in the company adds to their contacts list,
will be added to a specific employee contacts list.

is that even possible ?

thanks in advance.

If I understand your question correctly, you want to build a shared contact list that multiple employees have access to.  This is possible.  I'm assuming you have Exchange 2007/2010:

If you have Exchange 2003:

hi  robcambra

actually that is what i suggested to him as a solution,
but he said no,
he wants that a contacts list (placed at a single user) will be updated
from several other people contacts list,
so when ever they add a new contact the new contact will be added to the local user contacts list AND to the "other" employee contacts list.

Okay - I understand.  I think this is also possible but not in the way your boss described.  Simply add Exchange Contacts to your GAL (Gloabl Address List).  You can have one or all employees adding these and all employees will see them.

The following article describes Exchange Contacts:

hi  robcambra

maybe i don't get you the right explanation
i need one user to create a contact on his LOCAL contact list,
and the new contact should be created to a shared contact list on another user email box.

I don't think you can do this without writing code or using a third party app.

Here is a link describing some apps that might do the trick:

A third party application is going to be the only option here - nothing built in to do this. Add2Exchange from diditbetter would be the application of choice for me.
