Best Practice: How to synchronize Active Directory to your Windows Phones

The Microsoft Active Directory contains the contact information of all employees of a company. Users and contacts can be synchronized by messageconcept PeopleSync to your Windows Phones and other devices. PeopleSync is able to fetch names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and even profile pictures from the AD objects. It is possible to connect PeopleSync to one or multiple Active Directories.

To synchronize your Active Directory from messageconcept PeopleSync to your Windows Phone, you can use the CardDAV protocol. CardDAV is a standard for the synchronization of contacts between apps and devices. The standard is supported natively by Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 to support Google Gmail and Apple iCloud accounts. By simply configuring these account types to the URL of your PeopleSync Server, you will be able to sync your Microsoft Active Directory and other sources to the Windows Phone. A roll-out of an app is not needed.
