Christian --

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I am specifically referring to the enterprise/global address books. I will do as you have suggested and respond if there is any further issue.

In regards to the Address Book query, I was unaware of the "." search. Tried "*" and just a blank search. I will happily await an update that includes the option for "default global address book search string" ... =]

Thank you for your hard work and efforts. After tons of testing multiple other groupware applications (both commercial and otherwise), SOGo is most definitely the only option that meets my particular environment's needs -- by a long shot. Job well done.

Hello Laz Peterson

How would I go about allowing my users write access to the shared
address book without giving them SuperUser access? Is that possible?
We are using an Active Directory (Windows 2003) LDAP.

Are you talking about personal address books shared between SOGo users?
Then you only have to set the privilege for every user in question (or
use a group) for that address book.

Are you talking about the enterprise or global address books?
Those are generated from LDAP/AD and defined in the SOGo configuration
under topic SOGoUserSources.
There you have to set the users with write access into:

modifiers a list (array) of usernames that are authorized to
perform modifications to the address book defined by
this LDAP source

and you have to specify:

objectClasses when the “modifiers” list (see below) is set, or when
using LDAP-based user addressbooks (see “abOU”
bellow), this list of object classes will be applied to
new records as they are created

SOGoSuperUsername has nothing to do with that.

Also, I know that the standard display for shared LDAP contacts is
"search-only" … But how can I show all shared contacts in the window?
For a small office, we have a total of about 110 contacts that are
necessary for all staff to have access to, but the staff can't seem
to figure out how to search the names without getting confused, or
they are having trouble remembering the names at all without seeing
them. Definitely not a shortcoming of the SOGo environment, I must
add, but something I've gotta figure out how to deal with. ;)

That's not possible right now.

But you always can get these by setting SOGoLDAPQueryLimit to a number
bigger than your max contact number and searching for "." (= dot)

Also there is an enhancement request for that in the bug tracker.
See Bug # 438
