Hello Experts,

I was wanting to know how do I create a shared contact list in exchange 2013?

the list will not only be internal contact but also contain customers, leads, vendors etc. It will need to be available to the entire office with subfolder that can have separate security permissions.

i.e. Global contact list, private contact list

I wouldn't use Exchange for this. You need a CRM application to do this for you. That will allow you to track things correctly.

You could use a modern Public Folder, creating the folder through Outlook, but that is going to be limited to the same functionality as you have in Outlook.

Sub folder permissions isn't an issue in that scenario though - just ensure that Default is "none". Anyone with no permissions will not even see the folder.

Simon.

Hello all, I ended up creating a shared folder and transferring all existing contacts into the shared folder and allocated permissions for read and write to all staff.
