    Default how to update GAL (GlobalAddressList) without administrator rights

    Hello,

    a we understand administrator rights are required to use/access/maintain the GAL(Global Address List/Book).
    Due to different reasons, it's impossible to give a normal user administrator rights :-(

    Questions:
    What alternatives would you suggest? (e.g. would it be a good idea to have users copied all addresses
    from the GAL to e.g. Shared Cotacts and have the real administrator copied back all addresses to the GAL
    once in a while?


    Thank's a lot for any feedback!

    Martin

    Hello,

    probably I did ask the wrong question... but I am wondering how simple tasks
    like updating "customer-contact-information" (e.g. an email-address) is handled
    in big companies with Zimbra (without beeing a Zimbra-admin).


    Every feedback is appreciated very much. Thank you!

    Martin

    I've been asking that too. So far it doesn't seem possible. I've been having to update the information I can myself.


    A few feature requests about the GAL
    Bug 5953 - allow user to edit their own LDAP/GAL attributes
    Bug 19429 - more detailed access rights to update the GAL

    Martin,
    Users can't edit their entries in the GAL yet. You can go vote for an enhancement to allow users to edit their own entries here.
