Possible to create multiple Global Address Books, or push contact lists to certain users?

We are preparing to move from FirstClass to Kopano soon, but we need better control of the Global Address Book than I can find. We need to hide a group of users (students) from another group of users (temporary staff). The idea is that if you are a teacher, you can find a student by name in the directory, but if you are not a teacher you can only see staff. I know we can hide certain users from the GAB, but can we also “push” a second GAB or contact list to a group of people?

You could create additional adressbooks in the public folder (here you can organizr via permissions if people see them). There are also adresslists in LDAP, but you cannot limit who can see them.

@fbartels This should work for us! The only thing missing is the user cannot see contacts in this list from the “Address Book”. If they open the folder in shared contacts they can see the contacts, but if they open the Address book it only has “Global Address Book”, “Contacts”, and “Suggested Contacts” as options.

The only thing missing

its there once you enable it in the config.php of webapp:

        // Set true to hide public contact folders in address-book folder list,
        // false will show public contact folders in address-book folder list.
        define("DISABLE_PUBLIC_CONTACT_FOLDERS", false);
