I have successfully created a contact list in SharePoint 2010 and linked it into outlook. It all seems to be working as it should except for one issue:
Creating a new contact entry that contains information in the 'website' field.
If I create the contact inside SharePoint and enter 'bob.com' in the website field (deleting the 'http://' bit), I get a message saying invalid URL when I try to add the contact. This is presumably because its type is set to hyperlink and it requires and 'http://' in front of it for some daft reason. That's annoying but fine.
However, when I add the contact from inside outlook including information in the website field without the 'http://', it will act like it accepts the contact but not actually add it. It gets put in the 'sync failures' folder. But most annoying it doesn't tell you.
Because of this I'm getting a whole bunch of shared contacts from people not ending up in the contact list because people don't know they entered a web address wrong.
How can I fix this issue?
