Synchronizing Global Address List (GAL) with Address Books on User Smartphones in a Tenant

Copper Contributor


I have a question regarding the synchronization of the Global Address List (GAL) from Exchange with the address book on user smartphones within the context of a tenant, not a private account. Is there a possibility to make the general GAL of a tenant synchronize with the address books of users on their phones? I would like the data from Exchange, such as phone numbers, to automatically download to the user’s phone book.

I understand that you can configure an Exchange account on a mobile device, which will allow access to the GAL through the mail app on the phone. However, I would like this information to be available directly in the phone’s address book, not just in the mail app.

Is this achievable? If so, what are the steps I need to take to accomplish this? 

I would appreciate any suggestions and advice.
