- You can delegate full access to the contacts in your “My Contacts” group without granting access to your mail or anything else in your accounts.
- This is a common practice between some executive users and their assistants.
- It may be used in any situation where a user wishes to share all of his or her contacts with another user.
- You can delegate contacts only to G Suite @ NC State users.
- Users to whom you have delegated contacts will be able to edit your contacts.
- Contacts delegation is all or nothing; you cannot delegate a subset of your contacts.
To share with a group of people (e.g., unit, department):
- Add all the contacts to a generic account (request one via Web Registry).
This ensures the contacts are stored and managed centrally rather than by a single individual who may leave the university.
- Delegate the contacts from that generic account to an appropriate individual or G Suite Group.
- Tell those people about the delegated contacts, so they can delete any duplicates in their own account.
