The Google Contacts integration is a 1-way sync that applies the changes made in Copper to your Google Contacts.
Note: This sync works for both creating new contacts and overwriting information on existing contacts in Copper.
Note: Because this is a 1-way sync, changes made in Google Contacts will not sync back to Copper.
Note: If you are having issues with contacts not syncing, please ensure your Google Contacts trash is empty and you do not already have 25,000 Contacts in your Google Contacts. Google only allows up to 25,000 contacts and the contacts in the trash are included in this limit.
Activating the Google Contacts Integration
Follow these steps to turn on the Google Contacts integration:
Sign in to your Copper account and select “Settings” from the left sidebar.
Under “Set Up Google”, select “Google Sync Settings”.
Select the "Google Contact 1-way Sync” checkbox.
Sign in to your Google Contacts account, and find the “Copper" label on the left sidebar to see your sync in action. Your Copper contacts will be added under that label, along with the Name, Email, and Phone Number you have listed for them in Copper.
Note: By default, your iPhone will ignore the “Copper” folder when syncing with your Google Contacts.
