Situation

How are the Home and Cell Phone numbers added for use in the GroupWise System Address Book?

Resolution

In the GW address book, addresses in the system address book are pulled from and modified in eDir (eDirectory). Personal and frequent contact books are not stored in eDir, but in the client database. Because of this, the only fields in the system address book you will see populated are those that are visible in eDir.

Solution 1
In ConsoleOne (or NWAdmin for NW 5x) Create custom fields in eDir for things like Users Home Phone, etc, then map them to GroupWise user defined fields. See KB 3741418 (How to create Admin defined Fields in the GroupWise Address books)

Solution 2
Create a Personal address book and share it with users that need access to it. This way, you have access to more fields by default.
