Share custom contact folder with everyone in the organization.

Dear Experts,

I need to share with everyone a custom contact folder in Outlook office 365.

I wonder if it needs to be moved to the Global Address book since is in the offline address book.

I checked the permissions and they seem okay.

Thank you

It's indeed best to move the contacs to the GAL. You can also just share the contact folder from your mailbox, but you will need to properly train the users to open/work with it. If you choose this path, dont forget to grant at least the FolderVisible permission level on any folder in the path.
