Having SharePoint Contact List copy/update to Contacts in Outlook

I need the contacts from an SP list to copy to outlook. I know there is native funcitonality with SharePoint lists to sync with Outlook, but my manager wants a copy so we can get it in the Global Address Book.

 

 

I have new items in the list sucessfully copying in a seperate flow. For this one, I amchecking if an existing item is modified and if so, update it with the new info.

 

I do not know how to connect the contacts, it seems SP ID is different than the Outlook ID.

 

Setup:

Hi @msawhney,

 

Yes, the ID is different.

ID from SharePoint Contact List is the ID of the item, and the ID needed for the Outlook Create Contact is the corresponding Contact GUID.

To get that GUID, we need to first Get all the Contacts from Outlook, and then use condition to get the proper ID of the contact.

An easy example, here we choose the EmailAddress field, make sure the value part is configured with the corresponding EmailAddress part of the SharePoint contact list.

This doesn't seem to work.  What appears to be needed is a nested for each

 

For each from get outlook contact, then

    For each outlook contact email in outlook contacts emails

         if the email matches

                Update a contact

                complete

        else

              skip

   End

End

 

Create the contact

 

Not sure how you do that though.  If there is an easy example, please provide it.
