There are several ways to be Nimble in Microsoft 365:

Being Nimble in Microsoft 365 Inbox

With our Nimble Contacts Add-in for Microsoft 365 and Outlook Inbox, you can gather business insights on contacts you are communicating with - everywhere you work. The app can be used in your Outlook desktop Inbox and online web version.

Here are some key benefits: 

  • Access all of your Nimble records from your Outlook inbox. 

  • Automatic matching of social and public details for contacts & their companies.

  • Instant business and social insights for people and companies in Outlook.

  • Company Insights include biography, industry, number of employees, year founded, keywords, company type, revenue, ticker, CEO name, business address, and phone number.

  • People insights include name, company name, title, biography, location, keywords, work experience, education, and social identities.

Keep track of email communication in Nimble

Nimble enables you to connect multiple Microsoft 365 email accounts to track communication with your most important customers and prospects. 

By connecting your email accounts, you will create a bidirectional sync, enabling you to keep records of past communication, engage directly with your customers from within Nimble, and send targeted group messages to nurture your relationships with potential buyers.

To connect your email account, just visit Settings >> Networks & Imports and locate the Microsoft 365 connector. It'll look like this:

You'll get the option to sync not only your emails but also your calendars and contacts too.

Stay up to date with important events

Just like emails, Nimble offers a two-way sync for your Microsoft 365 events. By connecting your calendar,  you'll be able to: 

  • Quickly access your most important appointments for the day from the Today Page.

  • Keep records of past, present, and future events on the contact and company records.

  • Create and set recurring events that are visible within Nimble and your Microsoft 365 account.

  • Invite guests to events from within Nimble.

Easily set up your Microsoft 365 calendar by going to Settings >> Networks & Imports and locating the Microsoft 365 connector. Deselect "Email" and "Contacts" and only leave "Calendar" selected.

Or keep all 3 connected for a quicker setup.
