    Default Shared Contacts with Address Auto-completion

    I'm starting to do some testing with Shared Contacts. In my initial test it did not seem like the shared contacts were included in an address auto-completion lookup. I've looked at the options for both the sharer and the user given the view, but did not see anything to toggle this option on or off. Am I missing something? I searched Bugzilla and the forums and did not find anything related to this issue.

    I'd like to be able to have say our Purchasing group share a list of contacts for the vendors that they deal with, and maintain it themselves. But not having the auto-complete feature work for these addresses is kind of a strike against this feature in my opinion.

    A request has already been filed as bug 11141. Feel free to vote for it!

    Autocomplete against a shared address book is non-trivial: We either need to read in the shared address book during startup (potential big performance hit), or search against it while the user types (potential bad user experience).

    Thanks. I thought there might be some performance reasons why this hasn't been implemented.

    As somewhat of a side note. I did search bugzilla prior to posting, but used "shared contacts" as my search terms as opposed to "shared addressbook". Although I can see where both terms actually apply, the "shared contacts" search brought up 14 "bugs", while the "shared addressbook" only brought up the one. Perhaps something could be added to this bug so that it comes up in either search, and people won't miss it like I did. Just a thought.
