Share Outlook Contacts Accross 2 or More Computers
Sharing contacts saved in Outlook with colleagues or other people is normally done by using Microsoft Exchange Server to send invitations or sharing requests. However, an application such as Share Outlook Contacts Accross 2 or More Computers can make this process much more easy by providing a simple way to synchronize contact lists across multiple workstations.
The program extracts information from the 'Contacts' directory created for each Outlook profile and displays the found data in a structured way, in tree-like view for easier navigation.
The forthright interface allows you to manage all the folders and add new users to share the contacts with. You do so by right-clicking on a contact sub-folder (you cannot share entire folders) and entering or pasting the desired e-mail address.
For each mail address you input, it is possible to change the access rights. This means that a folder can be shared with some users in read-only mode, while others can be granted the permission to make modifications to the list.
Each change you make can be easily viewed by your colleagues, provided the 'Send Receive' button is pressed. However, please note that the modifications will not be visible unless you re-synchronized all the Outlook contact folders.
Outlook comes with options for sharing contacts with specific people, also allowing you to revoke their access to the lists. However, this option requires the use of Microsoft Exchange Server and cannot be performed without it. Share Outlook Contacts Accross 2 or More Computers allows you to take the short way to transfer contact lists and synchronize them with other computers.
