I'm sure there must be a simple method of sharing a contact, but I'm not finding it.

 

This is using the Outlook on the web application.

Hello

When you say shared, it that shared with entire tenancy or just between a few users?

Primarily sharing an individual contact between one or more specific users in our company.

Something like 'Share Contact' on an iPhone...

 

There is a 'Share' for the calendar.

I believe the easiest way to do this via a mobile device running MS Outlook is to enable syncing with the native local address book.  You can then share through that application.

Afaik OWA doesn't support contact sharing, but you can use the desktop Outlook app to share them.
