Our soulution was to Keep a personnel list in publicfolders and add to each contact a category called personnel list.
Then show each BB user how to sort by category in their contacts folder.
Then they can delete the old entries via category and copy over the personell list to contacts once a month.
Also you can tell the BB to lookup via group of personnel list or whatever categories they have.
Not the best solution but it works very well offline for BB and windows mobile.
This also teaches the user how to better manage their contacts via categories.
Also we have outlook do lookups in the personell list (copy to favorites and enable address book) and not use GAL.
HR can manage it easier from a public folder too.
How users update:
View arrange by category
Delete catagory personnel list
Goto public folders/personnel list
highlight first user
press ctrl a
Drag drop into contact folder
is this easy enough?
65+ users here can handle it.
