We are using the private addressbook on Macs and iOs devices successfully. Now we want to use a shared addressbook. In forums. kerio. com/m/79093 lodewijk suggests to use another licence for each shared address book. That is not really a solution, because I want to share and group several address books and don't really want to buy another 10 or so licenses.
So this is what i did:
- Set up a new contact folder in the web client and granted access to the relevant accounts
- The contact folder is available on the iOs devices immediately
- The Mac address book does not show the contact folder at all. So I followed support. kerio. com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarti cleid=564&nav=0,1,23 and removed all CardDAV accounts locally, rebooted, downloaded the automatical config tool
- The shared contacts are still not available.
I tried LDAP but this is not an option because every user should be able to add / edit contacts via Mac.
What is the best way to use shared contacts?
Try subscribe shared contact folder by these users in webmail - as the test they can access this contact folder.
A public contact folder must be in the root level of Public Folders, not subfolder. "Contacts" folder must be available too (it's a known bug).
Then download autoconfiguration tool: it should configure two CardDAV accounts - one for your personal account and second for Public Folders.
