Contact Database to mobile devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Currently we add contact directory to peoples phones that supplement their contacts with company contacts, vendors, on call phone numbers etc. We do this by creating a email account adding the contacts to the mobile device then adding the mail account to their iphone, and only syncing contacts. 

    This works well however at times users will get their default contacts set to the supplemental contact directory and when they begin to add contacts on their phone it adds it to the supplemental directory.

    Is there a way to make that contact directory read only?

    Or does anyone know of a method in exchange (2013 on-premise in this case) to push out supplemental contact directories. Or perhaps a third party piece of software to accomplish the same thing?
