Shared Contacts FAQs
Can I allow a non-super administrator to update shared contacts on my domain?
Yes. To delegate edit access to shared contacts create a new role through FlashPanel’s Access Control feature. To do so, go to “Settings” and select “Access Control.” Click the gear icon at the top right of the screen and click “Create New Role.” Name and describe the role and then check the appropriate boxes in the Shared Contacts section. Finally, click “Save & Apply” to add users to the role.
How can I update my shared contacts list?
To update your shared contacts lists without creating duplicate contacts, go to “Shared Contacts” found in FlashPanel’s “Directory” tab. Then click the gear icon at the top right and select “Update / Import.” Once here, choose the option “Update Existing Shared Contacts.” You’ll be prompted to download an existing list of contacts and then update that list. Finally, import the updated list.
Can I share specific contacts with specific users?
Yes, you can do this using FlashPanel’s shared contacts tags feature. After grouping your contacts by tag, you can then choose which users have access to which tags. Tags show up in a user’s Gmail Contacts when you use the Mobile Sync feature.
