Below, you’ll find a guide on how to perform a two-way Contact sync between SharePoint and a Global Address List (GAL). This process will allow users to keep Contacts between these two sources in sync.
Steps for Syncing SharePoint with a Global Address List:
1. Users will first need to log into the CiraHub Dashboard and select contacts as the object they want to sync. Then select contacts as the object to sync and SharePoint as the source type for your contact spoke. This will prompt the user to then sign into their SharePoint account and configure their sync settings to enable a two-way sync. More information on attaching a SharePoint spoke to an existing Hub can be found here.
2. Users will then need to attach an additional spoke to add GAL contacts within their tenant or another tenant. The user will have the option to log in on behalf of their organization or CiraHub will send an invite to a user from another tenant for approval. If the user has login credentials of the other tenant, they may also log in on their behalf by clicking “GRANT ACCESS.” Then, on the Dashboard, they will need to configure sync settings for the SharePoint and GAL Spoke they have created. This will enable two-way sync between the spokes and Hub. Note that users can attach additional spokes to multiple GALs as required.
