I would like my co-workers to share their contacts information, so I'm able to contact this person my coworker spoke with, like a mutualized contacts directory.

Is that possible?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • Yes, it’s possible. Are you an end user or a G Suite Admin? Have you reviewed the Gmail Help Center? – Rubén Dec 14 '17 at 13:04
  • @rubén Hello, yes I did, but didn't find what I was looking for – ferdi_ Dec 15 '17 at 14:52

From Delegate contacts to an assistant

If you use Gmail through your work, school, or other group, you can let an assistant in your organization manage your contacts. The assistant can then access your contacts to add names, update phone numbers, and maintain your addresses. You can delegate access to your contacts without granting access to your email or any other information in your account.

See the above link to learn the details.

Another alternative is to ask the G Suite administrator to add the external contacts to be shared to the Global Directory.

But the easiest could be to create a list of contacts on a spreadsheet and share it with your coworkers.


As I understand, you want to share your organisational contacts with your team/colleagues.

You can give ContactBook.App a try. ContactBook allows you to Seamlessly share organisational contacts across your team members using your G Suite account. It also Syncs with Multiple Devices, and allows admin to manage permission for each group/contacts.
