    Default user created "ContactGroups" available for all users?

    Hello,

    are ContacGroups created by normal users available to all Zimbra users ?
    (since we do not yet have ZCS installed, I am unable to test that myself)


    Thank's for your feedback!

    John

    Default

    By default Contact Groups created by regular users are not available to other users. However, a regular user can share the Address Book that contains a Contact Group or Groups. The only issue with this is that address auto-complete does not work with shared Address Books (I believe there is an open RFE to add this functionality), and my users have reported problems searching the shared Address Books as well. The only reliable way of using the shared Address Books that we have found is to actually go into the address book, find the person or group, then right-click on it and select "New Email" from the context menu. Definitely not as easy to use as a local address book, or the GAL, but it does work.
