Creating contact databases
You can create contact databases just as your administrator does. If you have trouble getting your contact databases to work as you expect, contact your administrator.
To create a contact database:
1       Open the container where you want the contact database.
2       Choose File > New > New Contact Database.
The new contact database opens.
3       Customize the contact database view, if desired.
4       Close the contact database.
The contact database is created with the default name selected.
5       Type the name you want to give your contact database and press Enter/Return.
After your contact database has been created, you can update its properties on the Info form, if desired.
6       Set contact database permissions.



Setting contact database permissions
To specify the permissions for your contact database:
1       Select or open the contact database.
2       Choose Collaborate > Permissions.
3       Update the Permissions form.
Your changes are saved automatically when you close this form.

If you created the contact database in an area that others can't access, you must subscribe users before they can use this contact database.



Giving users access to contact databases
You can make your contact database available to users by:
•       creating the contact database in a container to which they have access
or
•       subscribing them to your contact database.
To subscribe a user to your contact database:
1       Select your contact database.
2       Choose Subscribers from the context menu.
If the contact database Permissions form is still open, you can click Subscribers instead.
3       Click Add Subscriber.

With the subscribers list open, you can open a list of users, such as the Directory, select users, and drag them to the subscribers list. You can also select a plain text list of user names (one per line) and drag them.
4       Select the user.
To see a selected subscriber's résumé, click Résumé.
To remove a selected subscriber, click Remove Subscriber.

You can click the column headings in the subscribers list to sort the list, just as you can in other lists. This lets you display the subscriber names in alphabetical order.
