Shared Contacts Directory for your Domain on Google Apps.

Your Business Contacts are among the most valuable Assets within your Organization.

Although, they are usually spread out among your Company employees without a central and shared contacts Directory.
Even with Google Apps we still have that limitation, but not any more...

is a Web App built for your Google Apps Domain using Google Apps Script.

Every Organization needs a Directory with several Contacts Address Books to share across their Domain Users, some users would contribute to these books and others would just use them. Google Apps still does not provide such a solution and among the few third party options, none of them include all the key elements a Shared Contacts Directory should have.

provides a simple non intrusive solution fulfilling all those requirements: running within your Domain (your contacts are always with you) where you can choose a group of users with access to each contacts book, and decide who has full or just view permission. Contact’s books would show up as contact’s labels on each book-group member in Gmail (Contacts) and book-group owners (with full access) can freely add or edit contacts within that contact’s label (book). Additions and changes made by book-group owners will shortly propagate across the Domain and appear on the rest of book-group members in Gmail (Contacts) web interface.

After the installation in your Domain, xsDirectory offers a simple administration interface to enter new book names and associate them to a users group for access, as well as adjusting a few settings if needed. When the books are defined and xsDirectory is started, then it’s done.
