What is the Global Address List / Address Book
The Global Address List (GAL) is a searchable directory in Outlook of all the users, groups, shared contacts, and resources defined for your G Suite domain. These same global contacts are available from the Gmail interface on the web.
By default, global addresses are shared with everyone in your organization. They include each user’s primary email address and any email aliases or nicknames. Their name format (for example, Last name, First name or First name, Last name) follows your name format settings in Gmail.
Administrators can hide:
- All global addresses from users by turning the global directory off.
- A user from the global Directory by adjusting your G Suite Directory sharing settings.
Requires G Suite administrator privileges. If you need help, contact your admin. Who's my admin?
