About this course

This course includes:

  • Two self-paced lessons and two practice sessions for hands-on experience.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Share contacts using a SharePoint site.
  • Use Outlook to view the contacts in Outlook-style contact cards, to send messages, or to set up meetings.
  • Quickly switch from Outlook to the SharePoint site to add or update information in the SharePoint list.

Before you begin

To do the practice sessions in this course, you must have access to a Web site based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (a SharePoint site) and you must have permissions to add and edit items in a contacts list. If you're not sure about whether you have these things, ask your systems administrator.

If you don't have a server running Windows SharePoint Services but if you do have Internet access, you can sign up for the Windows SharePoint Services Trial which will allow you do the practices. The trial will allow you to try out SharePoint for a month without having to set up your own Windows Server environment.

Do you keep your contacts in a personal contacts list? Have you ever wanted to share that list quickly and easily with others in your organization? Have you ever wanted others to share their contact information with you? Perhaps you're in the home office, and you work with a number of people in the field. A SharePoint contacts list could be your solution.

With a contacts list stored on a SharePoint site, you can share information with anyone in your organization who has access to the site. Even better, you can view and use that same set of contacts right from Outlook 2003, a program you may already be familiar with.
