    Google Apps - Sharing contacts


    Does anyone who's using google apps have a good way of sharing contacts via a global address book? I know you can enable contact sharing to create a global address book but i don't want the students to be able to see it plus it would have all the staffs random contacts in.

    I've tried the Apptivo app but it doesn't quite do what i want. Anyone found anything better?

    We just let the students contact staff - every address on our domain is accessible to both staff and students. That way students can contact each other and their teachers. It seemed like a good idea from a collaborative point of view and it allows students to email staff for help. We block students from posting to staff mailing groups though.
    You can hide entire groups (e.g staff) email addresses, but presumably that would also hide it from other staff.
    It would be a simple script using GAM: ExamplesEmailSettings - google-apps-manager - GAM Account Commands to Configure User Email Settings - Dito Google Apps Manager - Google Project Hosting
