We recently upgraded (?) to Office 365 with Microsoft hosted email services. Under the older versions of Outlook, we could see our global contact list as a folder and could view it in many different forms. I used to use Business Card views. With the new version, we have our global contacts under Address Book, but the only way to view them is to create a new email or click Address Book in the ribbon and do a search.

Only the administrator can modify the Address Book,=.

Is there anyway to add the Address Book to the People page and have it show up in the left hand pane, or viewing the contents as Business Cards or in some other format?

Thanks for any advice with this. It seems that Microsoft is making things harder rather than easier.
