Indexing Shared Contacts in Outlook 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have put a Shared Contacts folder on another users machine. My Contacts are the master list of contacts for both of us

    The contacts are all there in her Shared Contacts, but there is no index, so the other user cannot find anything. The Search Tools on her machine only shows the option to search that users Outlook

    And Yes, everything is up to date.  We are using Outlook 2016 and Exchange 2016.

  • What do you mean with "there is no index"?
    You mean the alphabet indicator on the left? That is only available in specific views like the People view but not in the List view.

    Including a screenshot to clarify things might help as well.
