Sync with Google Contacts

Migrated from legacy ideas forum with 146 votes.  

I'd love to see 2 way synch to google contacts as an option.
Many apps use google contacts. For example, Evernote app has a business card scan function. Take a picture of a business card and it can add the details to your phone contacts. This can then synch to Google contacts. By just having the ability to sync from google contacts to Hubspot you gain this business card scan functionality.

If a contact has a new email or phone number, I need this on my phone, so a change in Hubspot CRM should be synched to google contacts.

I consider this to be fundamental, and this functionality exists in the Insightly free CRM - I am surprised I couldn't find a request for this (apologies if I have missed it).

Hi @dzunker - as of now, integrating a Google Contacts Sync natively into HubSpot is not on the product roadmap. However, one of our integration partners, Import2 has developed a valuable integration here that I would strongly recommend trying out!  http://wizard.import2.com/apps/hubspot/.

Thank you to everyone who has commented on this post. I am a member of the HubSpot Product team and am looking to understand how you would use the Google Contacts and HubSpot CRM Sync. 

 

From the postings thus far - I am seeing 2 trends

1) Data consistency

2) The ability to leverage Google Contacts on Mobile

 

What are the other uses that you would leverage and prefer from this integration to make this a valuable addition to the HubSpot platform?

Great Idea! I had this feature on my previous CRM and it's very helpful to have access to contacts everywhere.

Google Contacts/HubSpot CRM Sync should be close to the top of the HubSpot CRM new feature list for your Dev Team.  Hubspot "leans" on Gmail for threaded-emails as the feature doesn't exist in their email client (no reason to re-invent the wheel).  To not have Contacts Auto-Sync seems an oversight.  

Is this being worked on?  

How soon can we get this?  

How do we see the top-requested-feature list?

I would really love to see this feature implemented. I found myself in this situation a few times and exporting and importing csv files is not ideal.

I realized that Zapier has an integration of its own. But I am surprised there is not a native sync for Google contacts.

It's a very simple thing they could integrate. Chances are they are leaving room for integration companies to sell their products. PieSync works very well, but yeah it's pretty unnecessary to make us pay for those services when we shell out hundreds or thousands of dollars for a product that claims to be the best. It's so good, but they can't figure out contact syncing. Riiiiiight Smiley Tongue
