How is the Global Address List updated?

The Global Address List is populated automatically by Exchange, which gathers its data primarily from the Aurion Payroll Database. Information such as Name, Job Title and Location is all controlled by the information on Aurion. If you need any of this information to be updated, please contact a member of your HR Support Staff.
Changes to this kind of information should take 24 hours to process from Aurion to Exchange, and the GAL information should refresh sometime after that. If you believe the GAL is not reflecting the most up to date information, you can manually update it using the 'Send/Receive' tab as shown:
