Delegate Marking User's Contacts as Private

Copper Contributor

We have a delegate trying to mark their partners contacts as private, but it seems the private button is greyed out. The delegate currently has editor access to the partners contacts. Do they need to have higher access? Is this process no longer working correctly? Thanks!

Are you saying in Outlook, any screen can share to further elaborate?



In Outlook > Contacts.

When you click on your own contacts, you can set them to private.

If I am a delegate to someone else, when I click on their contacts, the private option is greyed out. I've already tested with even owner access and it still doesn't appear. Is that by design? Or a bug?
