Share contacts like calendars

Postby Ioannis » Tue Jul 02, 2013 5:38 pm

Hello Community,

I did manage (easily) to creat a AdminACC with several different calendars and just to share a few of them to a different group of people. So the others can see the calendars I shared with them but they can`t set new appointment in to it.

I would like to do the same with my address book. So I would like to create an address book with different groups in it and share it with a bunch of people without giving them the opportunity to create new addresses in my address book. So it would be the same with the calendars they could see it but neither change something nor create new contacts.

I would be very pleased if someone does know how o could deal with this.

Greeting from Switzerland,
Ioannis

Hi,

OC supports sharing address books with other users and groups. Just click on the little cogwheel below your address book and choose the user/group to share this address book and choose your needed permissions.

Hi,

sorry not the address books but your groups. See the attached screenshot.

You have to click on the congwheel (1.) which opens a list with your address books. Then you can click on 2. to share this address book.

If you don't get this congwheel or list try to use another browser.

Hi !

This post is the first result when we search "owncloud share contacts" on Google. I use OC 7.0.4 and didn't see the share icon too. So i post the "solution" here if some other have the same issue and don't understand why. (so, sorry for the topic dig, but I think this is meanfull)

If you use Adblock, this is probably the cause of this missing icon : Adblock believe this is a "share to ban" (like facebook share for exemple) because of the CSS class name used on the link. This should be corrected in future version of OC, but in 7.0.X, this problem still remain.

Simple solution : inform your users to deactivate Adblock on your Owncloud instance :-)
