Syncing Google contacts with your account is a useful option as it allows you to keep your contact list up-to-date on the CRM. Please note that you can only configure one-way sync that allows bringing new contacts from your Google account to your Freshsales Suite directly.
Note: This is a user-level sync and is accessible to all users.
To sync google contacts,
Click Profile icon > Sync Contacts.
Click Google Contacts and authenticate with your Google Account credentials.
Once you sign into your Google account, you will be requested to grant permission to access your contacts.
Click Allow to grant access to your Google account information.
Once you have granted access, you will receive a success notification.
Select the specific group from your Google contacts that you would like to sync.
Note: Only one-way sync is provided from Google contacts i.e., any contacts additions/updates you make on your Google contacts will be reflected inside your product. However, the opposite of this will not occur.
After mapping the fields for the sync, click the Save and Sync button. This will initiate the process of syncing all contacts from your Google Contacts.
What are the fields that get synced?
Note: All the fields are optional. Google Contacts expects a field to be present to save the contact.
