Re: How to make Address Book where all can see it?

What I have done is create a "special" user and assign it to a dummy device. Then create the PAB for that user, example username = SharedAddBK. After that create a Phone Service, equal to the PAB setup, but the username and PIN already filled in and call it something like Shared Address Book. After that all you have to do is have users subscribe to that service. Only draw back at this time is currently anyone who subscribes to that service and EDIT entries from their phones. Have not checked yet on if it's possible to disable that, but it has not caused a problem at the locations I'm using this in. What I've also done is installed the Address Book Synchronizer on someones PC and given them the username and password info so they can use the Windows Address Book to create the Shared Book, when their is a large number of entries.

you mean to add them to the Corporate Directory?

because that way, it would be mixed: our directory with the business or partners directory..

I would like to have it on the services exactly as my Personal Address Book, but I want it to be public so all staff can see it.

i'm also looking for a seperate directory of adressbook together with our corporate directory. Is there some standard solution for this or can this be done with an xml application?
