Bug: Contacts (People) app does only add to local contacts database [released]

I have two Exchange/ActiveSync accounts configured (Zimbra 8.0.6, OSE+zextras and NE) which pulls down contacts just fine. If I edit entries, these changes are reflected back to the servers.

However, there are no way to add new contacts from the phone and get them propagated to any of these ActiveSync accounts. New entries seems to be saved locally only.

I think a great enhancement here would be the ability to choose where to synchronize contacts. Typically, a telephone can be set up to synchronize with multiple sources (Facebook, Google, Exchange, ownCloud) - but I think I am not alone in not wanting all contacts synchronized everywhere - in particular I don't want all my personal contacts synchronized to an ownCloud installation at work.

This would have to be a per-contact function to be useful, although a global setting would be a good start (and could later be used as default for new contacts added on the phone).

I consider this to have been fixed. After Sailfish OS 2.0 I migrated all my contacts to the Zimbra server and deleted all local contacts. All modifications, including adding new entries are successfully synchronized with the server.

The comment from @kjetil-kilhavn is valid, but strictly another issue.

Closing this issue.

I'm still having this issue, Jolla is displaying the "local" icon next to my phone number, instead of the little planet (saying its synch with exchange).
