Contact lists using profile database data...

  Asked By: Jarrod    Date: Oct 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1190

Is it possible to have a contact list web part pull specified contacts from the profile database? I’d like to have my contact list(s) actually pull the data from the profile db since it will be updated by AD.

1. Create a custom web  part.
2. If you use SQL XML to pull  the user profile  data you're interested in, you could use the XML Viewer part  to display. See some of the SQL queries posted to microsoft.public.sharepoint.portalserver
3. Write something that sync's all or part of the user profile database  with a SharePoint Contact list. msdn.microsoft.com/.../odc_fpbldgxmlwebs.asp might be helpful.

My preference would be #3 because a Contact list  gives you the greatest flexibility.

I didn’t think it was OOB functionality. I was already thinking of #1 as my course of action.
