I work at a small nonprofit, and we are an exclusively Apple shop. For years, I have wanted the ability for each of my employees to have easy access on their phones and laptops to two address books: a company one that is maintained by our secretary, and then a personal one that they maintain themselves. Have any of you figured out how to do that?
I have never really worked in the corporate world, but it would seem to me that this is a fairly common desire. We are using Fastmail as our Email/Contacts/Calendar provider, and each Fastmail account has a “personal” and a “shared” address book built in. But the official line from Fastmail has been that Apple devices limit you as follows:
“You can only configure one address book — either the Personal or the Shared address book. Both of them wouldn’t work on the same device.”
In the past, I have also used https://fruux.com, but I stopped when I switched over to Fastmail. So, again, how do others handle this problem of shared contacts within a company setting?
