Contacts: share my Personal Contacts with all users

We need a central company wide "Personal Contact List" which auto updates every day as new contacts are added. One way would be to allow the Admin or designated user the option to share his/her Personal Contact List. It would also be helpful to allow any user to share their Personal Contact List with other users or groups.

    Please add this feature. Our previous phone system had this option and it would be nice to have this capability back.

    Who wants to take a bet that this still won't be implemented in another 6 years from now ?

    Shocked to find out this isn't possible, seems like a very basic function in business/team environment software.

    When we are finally able to upload our contact list for our team to share in RC, we will be much more productive making client calls - and spend less time searching for another provider with this functionality!

    Also, can a "Project" section be added to filter contacts by project, or something alike.

    Please add this feature. It would be incredibly useful. I'm surprised it's not already standard!

    Is this on the roadmap? Is there an estimated date for implementation?

    This discussion has been going on for years. It's time to implement the global contact listing. WHEN????

    Our office just got RingCentral and I cannot believe that this is not a feature.

    Having the "Personal" contact list, which appears in the portal, appear on the phone as a directory under the corporate directory would be of incredible benefit. The fact there is no central way of managing contacts is a big oversight.

    Just as good is to have a secondary external to company - campnay wide address book that could be linked to daily imported csv or live link to anothe database

    It is really outrageous that this is not already a feature. If only we could at least export to csv from the app then we could at least do a manual update of our main contacts in the admin portal 1-2 x per week. Otherwise, RC needs to allow for as many soft phone installations as we need since many of our teams work remotely but cannot install softphones because of licensing restrictions.

    Please add this global list feature, especially right now that a lot of us are working remotely. Perhaps still only with a few people as the who have editing permission.

    This would help our service team to ensure we have a central contacts list.

    RINCENTRAL: WE NEED THIS. ALL YOUR CUSTOMERS NEED THIS. NOT HAVING THIS IS THE ONLY REASON WE DONT USE THE NEW APP AND WILL SWITCH ONCE YOU FORCE US TO USE IT. It doesn't seem that hard to do just replicate your "company" contacts coding and rename it to Company Address Book or something . Name it whatever just make it work. Thank you rant over

    Must-have, and a deal breaker for us currently in trial.
