Outlook Business Contact Manager Sync
I have my Tour set up to sync with Outlook. I has been seamlessly syncing contacts calender and notes.
This week I upgraded to Outlook Business Contact Manager. The advantage to it is that all my contacts are linked with their history such as emails. It is a really great tool for business.
Probelm is, my tour continues to sync with my old contacts list, not my new Business contact manager. I tried adjusting the sync set up in the BB desktop, however it says something about Business Contact Manager being a leaf file and can not do it.
I'm thinking a work around might be for me to make Outlook link the two contact databases so when I add to the Business contact db it updates the regular one. That way my BB would always have the updates.
Any thoughts or ideas?

Business Contact Manager uses a separate database from your regular contacts and I have yet to see a sync program that looks there. You might look at some aftermarket sync programs, but again I never found one that worked.

I use Outlook BCM extensively and needed all of my contact from there on my phone. I ended up buying a third-party software called CompanionLink and it now works perfectly. It took a little bit of trial and error to setup, but now it is great. It also syncs calendar, memo and task items from BCM.
