Updating contact info in outlook
To solve the problem and make your Outlook contacts available to other applications (so that you can use contacts to make phone calls and for other functions), you can synchronize your Exchange contacts as i OS contacts.
When this happens, i OS can use the Exchange contacts like any other i OS contact.
Hoping there is something in outlook 2013 that I can use to fix this or something in exchange.
When I wrote about Outlook for i OS during my transition from Windows Phone to i OS, I concentrated on email notifications and downloads.
This does not mean that the Outlook dev team are happy campers.
When we make a change in AD or Exchange the outlook 2010 global address books update immediately and automatically, but the outlook 2013 users do not.
The situation in Outlook for i OS is very strange for someone coming from Outlook for Windows 10 Mobile where the integration with Exchange contacts is smooth, flawless, and embedded in the OS.
But that is the effect of Microsoft following the rules as set down by Apple – or Google for the Android address book.
Outlook for i OS has its own People section that synchronizes with the contacts stored in a user’s Exchange mailbox (on-premises or cloud – including Outlook.com).
Synchronization is one-way and Exchange is the master copy, meaning that you cannot make changes to an Outlook contact on your device.
