Using Google Apps. I have Mac Address Book, iOS Contacts set to synchronize with the account.
If I create contacts manually via web interface, they synchronize beautifully with all devices.
But if I look up a contact in the Directory and add it to the My Contacts group, I see the following behavior:
On the web interface in the My Contacts group, I see the contact listed with its name, email and phone; and the detail page shows the connected profiles and directory contact info. It only populates the Work email, name and title fields (not phone), but I can see the extra info in the linked profiles.
On my iOS devices, no contact entry is created. (Again, note above, when I create a new contact manually it instantly pushes to iOS.)
In Mac's Address Book, the contact appears but ONLY the email is populated; no name, no title, no phone.
Am I out of luck here? I'm trying to get a few dozen co-workers to synch to my phone without having to manually create them.
