  • Question

  • Is it possible to push contacts to end users ? So when they log in, they have the complete company already in their contact list ?

  • There is a third-party tool called OCS Contact Manager (OCSCM) that you can use to configure contact lists. Search the forum for 'ocscm' as there a couple threads discussing the topic.

    Also, there are limits to the amount of contact's a user can have, so depending on your company I would recommend against populating every SIP-enabled AD object in every user's contact list.  The Address Book adds simply lookup functionality using the find bar.  Having many contacts slows down user login; this is noticable when logging in remotely, especially using the Communicator Mobile client.

  • You can also use a free tool from the OCS Resource Kit

     

    LCSAddContacts.wsf - The Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Add Contacts script, LCSAddContacts.wsf, is a WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) script used to add contacts

    Thank you for the link, i have tested this program but i didnt find it very easy to use. And our company is not that big, we are talking about 50 users at most.
