Outlook shared contacts not updating

When you use Microsoft Outlook with a Microsoft Exchange Server account, contacts can be shared between people.Contact sharing is not limited to the default Contacts folder that is created in all Outlook profiles.This will update contact information, pictures, phone numbers, etc. Now you have the most up-to-date information from Active Directory in your local address book. Under Send/Receive Groups, you should see an option to "Download Address Book." Now you will be prompted for a few options, and you can choose to update from the Global Address List (this is how your AD should push out contacts). I download the full address book and it loads for a couple of seconds. I open some contact which I haven't updated yet, click on update - it is updated.Also the Update button seems to have to do something with "Outlook Social Connector" - see the other screenshot I added?Is the calendar connection opened “on access” or is the connection made everytime the user opens Outlook ?What if the Outlook (2010, 2013) user has checked the “download Shared folders” to cache all Shared folders locally ?

Updates download of calendars is on access only when “Download Shared folders” is checked on Outlook (2010, 2013) As a summary, if the user has cached mode enabled, calendars will be updated when they will access the calendar, if users doesn’t have cached mode enabled, calendar connection will be on access only as well.Sharing invitations offer the recipient access to your contacts folder.When you send a sharing invitation for your default Contacts folder, you can request access to the recipient's default Contacts folder.It scans your contacts and makes updates based on information in the GAL.Q: What’s the impact of a user having lots of Shared calendars opened or just configured in his Outlook profile ?
