Using Office 365 Contact Synchronization

Using Office 365 Contact Sync

Your Gold-Vision Administrator will need to follow the instructions to Enabling the 365 synchronisation before you can use this functionality.

To use the Office 365 Synchronisation you will need to view the field “Synced with Office 365” as a column in the contacts list.  Please ask your Administrator to make this visible if you cannot see it as a user.

Against your contacts you will see a column which shows the contact is either synchronized or not via a tick or cross.
