Modifying Display Templates and additional attributes

Posted by Bharat Suneja at 12:18 PM
Recently got a question about customizing the GAL and my previous post that talks about it: "HOW TO: Modify Display Template to make default email address appear in Address Book/GAL".

The new Details Template Editor in Exchange 2007 (in EMC | Tools) makes it much easier to modify templates and give your GAL the kind of look you want (short of adding that 5 Mb. purple bitmap file as a background and an extra-large company logo perhaps... :). Screenshots and more information about Details Templates can be found in Managing Details Templates.

So, you're trying to customize the properties pages of your address lists and want to add an attribute such as ipPhone. You don't see the attribute you're looking for. Can you add additional attributes to the list? Or should you? Dave Goldman explains in Adding attributes to the Exchange details templates.

This is excellent information! It helped me a lot but I'm having another issue which is similar and I hope you might be able to assist.

Here is my situation:
I have Active Directory setup with Exchange 2007. I also have a Shoretel Phone system setup which displays information from the GAL to all users in the Call Manager. For an example it shows Home Phone, Cell Phone, Home Address etc.

I want to keep all this info in Active Directory but I want to prevent it from reaching the GAL so it does not populate the Call Manager. I only want Name and Office phone from Active Directory to populate the GAL but not the rest.

I hope I explained this well enough..

Thank you

@Mark: You can use the Details Template Editor to remove those fields from the details template of each locale. This takes care of Outlook properties. Users will be able to see the properties available in OWA.
