Is there a way to build a contacts list and then push to clients?

Subject kind of explains what we are trying to do. We want to create a contact list that would be pushed out to certain managed users.

Kind of a big deal

I read what you want about three times now and I still don't know what you want lol.

Contacts list of what? administrators? Like, an email that will go out to all clients and email them who the admins are?

A contact list of email addresses for our engineering people to use, as they all send to each other and the same external people. We use iPads and I want to populate the new iPads contact list instead of having to do it manually for each of the 18 people.

I believe what you're trying to do is push the contacts to IOS devices via Meraki Systems Manager. I don't know if it's possible. If it is, I expect it will probably be via the managed app config settings:


Maybe @MeredithW can move this to the Systems Manager section.

You can do this by pushing an LDAP profile to the phones. This will have the contact list hosted up. Alternatively you can use a group carDAV account which also works.
