2795200 - Details are missing when synchronizing contacts to C4C with client-side Outlook add-in

Symptom

Contacts created with client-side Outlook add-in are not synchronized correctly to Cloud for Customer when no customer account has been referenced. Details like e-mail address, phone number and address are missing in C4C, although they have been entered in Outlook.

Environment

SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a contact in Outlook within the  folder "SAP Cloud for Customer Contacts" with detailed information, for example, e-mail address, phone number and address.
  2. Add the contact to C4C without referencing the contact to a customer account and press Submit.
  3. After the automatic synchronization open C4C and go to Customer > Contacts
  4. Look for the created contact in the list and open it.
  5. The details which have been entered in Outlook are missing in C4C.

Cause

This problem occurs when the details entered in Outlook have been entered as business details. Business relevant details are not synchronized with C4C when no customer account has been referenced.

Resolution

Change the details in Outlook to be entered as personal details, as shown in the screenshot below:

The details are shown in C4C now in Customer > Contacts > Overview as "Personal Addresses".
