In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

Nothing is synched. It is a one-way lookup by the SharePoint web part. You
can't change anything in the SharePoint display and have it propagate back to
Outlook/Exchange.

Sharepoint Lists and Outlook Integration

Post by TWFrb3 » Thu, 19 May 2005 22:31:20

Could anyone clarify what fields get synchronized when you link a contacts
list in Sharepoint to Outlook? We are having great difficulty figuring which
fields actually get synched up - and which do not.

We would like to use SharePoint as a location for our customer data - and
then link to it from Outlook - but without knowing which fields - custom or
not we can use - it is very confusing.

Thank you

Sorry I misunderstood your question. I thought it is importing contacts
question. Pls forget above post.

for below fields according to SDK.

"FirstName", "LastName", "SMTPAddress", "CompanyName", "JobTitle",
"HomeTelephoneNumber",
"BusinessTelephoneNumber", "MobileTelephoneNumber",
"BusinessFaxNumber", "BusinessAddressStreet",

We are looking to synchronize from Sharepoint to Outlook only - we know we
cannot change data from Outlook back to Sharepoint.

Our question is: Can we create custom fields in the Sharepoint contact list
and have those show up in Outlook when we link to the list?

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

You have it backward. SharePoint reads Outlook data. Nothing goes back to
Outlook. You want to see something different in your SharePoint view--you
open Outlook, change it there, then refresh you SharePoint page.

If you want to go the other way, then you need to look for a third-party app
that will do that. I don't know of any, but I haven't been looking.


Not out of the box SPPS2003.
