Social Networks such as LinkedIn, Facebook no longer support syncing their contacts via Social Connector Providers to Office 365, so this feature is removed from Outlook 2016. We don’t have any schedule or plan regarding adding the feature back. Your understanding is highly appreciated.
说停就停了. 反正.他们也一直都这么干的. 一会取消,一会加回来.
Actually, for SharePoint Online Contacts App, we have the build-in feature to sync the contact lists to Outlook. Here are the steps:
Go to the site which contains the contact lists.
Click the list > click List on the top bar > Connect to Outlook.
A pop up window should appear to ask whether you want to open Microsoft Outlook. C lick OK.
Then a pop up window will also appear in Outlook. Users will be prompt for the credential of their Office 365 accounts.
After inputting the credentials, Outlook will start to sync the contact list.
SharePoint Online Contacts App 注意看online这个字眼. 意味着授权要花钱.
