    Default Default Shared Address Book ?

    Hello,

    I've installed ZCS 5 Open Source edition on FC7.

    I created some users and the system is working quite nice.

    Is there an option to link all users address book to one shared address book.
    I looked it over, and most people reffer to GAL , but GAL is only accessible in seach mode and you can browse all contacts + it's for your own server's email address. most of my contacts are outsiders .

    Today we have a 3rd party program where we keep all the records .
    I Would like each user I create to have an access to company's public ( public only to company's users) address book where he can view / change the contacts.
    the user can create private contacts by openining a private address book.

    Is that possible ?

    Thanks ,

    Jogel.

    Would something like the following work:
    • create a new addressbook
    • add all the info to that addressbook
    • share that addressbook out to all the users in view/read-only mode


    You can add a couple of users as managers so they can help keep the addressbook up-to-date.

    what if I have around 50 users ?
    I'll do the share and then Mail it to a disturbution list ?
    Is there a way to add that shared address book into one's accout upon accout creation ?

    All in all fcash solution's sounds resonable.
    I saw the sharing option in one's address book, after i share with specific user or disturbution list(if possible) does the person / email i entered needs to confirm ?

    Thanks .

    You might add a vote/some notes to Bug 12110 - Ability to set calendar share settings by default & Bug 3686 - template for user additions
    (also cool Bug 7473 - Share management and discovery)

    You can either send a standard notification -i or use createMountpoint to do the work.

    Bill deleted your duplicate and I moved from http://www.zimbra.com/forums/adminis...s-service.html which is really GAL discussion in disguise.
