Many companies maintain contact lists in Microsoft SharePoint Server or in Office 365 SharePoint Online. To make these lists available outside of SharePoint, PeopleSync fetches the contact data from SharePoint to bring it to your Mac OS X Addressbook and other devices or apps. Custom columns of the lists can be matched to standard contact fields individually. Linked pictures will be used as profile pictures for the contact items. All data will be stored in a SQL database as well as in an LDAP directory for offline synchronization and online access.
The Apple Mac OS X operating system comes with several applications for Mail, Contacts and Calendar. The apps support the synchronization with several consumer and corporate email systems. With messageconcept PeopleSync and the native CardDAV support of Mac OS X a synchronization with SharePoint Lists and other systems to the Mac is also possible. This makes contact data from these sources available in the Mail app and all other applications, relaying on the Mac OS X Addressbook.
