    Default Copy addresses

    hi there,

    i am using zimbra wth version 5.0.10.
    is there a way to make copies from some contacts in my addressbook.
    if i use the drag and drop function with pressed shift key i see a plus-sign at the
    cursor, but the contac will be only move to the selected addressbook.
    not copied!

    if it behaves like e-mail folders, you can only copy between local <-> shared, not between local folers.

    does anyone know if this is possible or have a workaround.
    What one of my managers wants to do is create a new address book for example friends and copy their details to friends while keeping his contacts book intact.

    Anyone been able to do this or is there a request I can vote on

    Probably not. I don't see 23027 on the 6.0 project page.

    A slightly ugly workaround is to use the Export/Import tab in the preferences and edit the CSV file in between.

    One would have to suppose that Zimbra has a finite amount of time and resources to spend on ZCS and other bugs/enhancements have been given priority over this particular issue.
