Hello, is there a way to have a shared address book on devices?
We will have all Android smartphones full enrolled and we want a shared address book managed by IT.
Hello There,Thank you for reaching us. You need to have a secure email configured on your managed devices. From Sophos Mobile Control, under Configure > Policies > Android > Create > Sophos Container Policy > Add Configuration > Work email > check Export Contacts to device checkbox. You need to add the contacts to your Exchange contacts. Then it’ll pass the info to the secure email app> and then it will sync the contacts on the device.
Another option is to use a CarDAV server. - https://docs.sophos.com/central/Mobile/help/en-us/AdminHelp/Policies/IOSUser/CardDAV/index.html
If you're using a Synology NAS you can also leverage the CarDAV capabilities built in. I answered a similar question in a neighbouring thread referenced below.- community.sophos.com/.../contacts-in-ios
Thanks for this, but I can’t use a generic account for all smartphone: I look for something where users don’t need to input the account password. No other options? We use only android, so cardav cannot be used.
