I have a customer with Office 365(outlook 2010) - he keeps his contacts in sync using the sharepoint website (more than 1000 contacts)
while this is actually not a real issue and everything is working fine, the customer complains about the following:
when he creates/changes a contact in outlook it is saved to sharepoint without problems - unless he changes or creates a contact and adds a website to the contact under website address.
if he fails to remind himself that he absolutely HAS
to add "http://
" to the beginning of the URL outlook will not sync this contact and will error out - all changes made to this contact are also not being synced.
my question: is there a way to circumvent this great "feature" of microsoft short of actually telling him that he must type "http://
" before the url?
i have tried configuring the website field on sharepoint(no luck) and tried outlook forms(to add http automatically for every new contact) so far (and this could be something if there wasn't the issue of "oh what? you spent so much time on doing somthing like THIS?? I'm not paying for that"
any other ideas?
otherwise i'll just write him an outlook reminder going off every 5 minutes to remind him of adding "http://
" to contacts' websiteaddress.
thanks for your input
