  • Hi Susan,

    I'm going to assume that by a Global Address Book you're talking about Profiles in SharePoint.

    In the SharePoint User Profile Service there's a one-way import from AD. You can configure that import to include the users thumbnail from AD if desired.

    The above is specific to SharePoint 2010, but is still for the most part relevant moving forward.

    Hope that helps.
