Google Contacts Sync OnePageCRM

Sync your Google Contacts with OnePageCRM

Keeping your contacts in sync between OnePageCRM and Google Contacts is simple thanks to our new integration with PieSync. Using this integration, your contacts will always be the exact same in both systems, so if you add or update a contact in one, it will automatically change in the other.

Why set up a sync?

  • Reduces ‘data errors’ and data entry which can be very time consuming
  • Your sales team has access to up-to-date contact information
  • Eliminates the need for multiple imports and exports of data

So how does it work?

You can find the PieSync icon under Apps and Integrations in OnePageCRM. Simply click install and authorize the connection and we’ll do the rest. Your contacts will begin syncing in the background straight away.

Authorizing Google Contact Sync

Customizing your Google Contacts sync:

There are some great options available to customize your sync settings.

  • Sync criteria: Decide on the criteria your contacts must meet in order to be included. For example, if contacts should be a part of a group in Google Contacts (or just all contacts), or if they should have a specific tag in OnePageCRM.
  • Sync direction: Choose whether to send contacts just the one-way (for example, from Google Contacts to OnePageCRM) or both ways with a full sync.
  • Conflict management: If there are duplicates or deleted contacts in either account, you can set how they should be managed, as well as which app you want to win out if a conflict arises (hint OnePageCRM is best).

Configure Google Contacts Sync

A clean contact list is important for staying focused on what really matters – clear and consistent communication. By integrating your CRM with Google apps and Gmail, you will make sure that your list is always up-to-date.

  1. Will this only sync contacts that exist in OPC or will any Google contact be added?

    • Brian McHale says:

      Hi Robert,

      This can be configured as a two-way sync if you wish, so any contacts in Google Contacts currently or in future should push across to OnePageCRM automatically and vice versa. So you’re contacts can be the same in both systems at all times, if that’s what you want.

      Let me know if you’re having any issues with getting set up with it.

      Thanks,
      Brian.

    I’ve set up iCloud to sync with google contacts and I’m also I’m using Full Contact Card Reader for business cards having it all in one place is fantastic.

      Thanks for your feedback Dan, glad you’re finding it useful. Nice work with bringing in the FullContact Card Reader – automated workflow’s at their finest :D

    Can this be done using WorkFlow, IFTTT, or Zapier?

    Seems a bit steep for a simple sync of contacts….

      Hi Rich,

      The main benefit with PieSync is that you will have a full contact sync between Google Contacts and OnePageCRM, rather than simply pushing a new contact from one to the other. PieSync will keep all contact information the same between both apps and in real time.

      Zapier for example is a great tool, but it requires an action to trigger the contact push. For example, if you add a contact to Google Contacts then you can push it to OnePageCRM, but if you update the same contact in OnePageCRM, it will not be updated in Google Contacts. I do not think this is as complete of a solution as PieSync in this scenario.

      If you have any more questions on this, please let me know.

      All the best,
      Brian.
