Our friends at PieSync helped us write a helpful explainer for how you can set up two-way Google Contacts syncing with Nimble. 

For information on how to get started with PieSync in Nimble, please start at this article.

Nimble and Google Contacts (G Suite)

Since Google Contacts and G Suite are address books without contact management functions, you'll have to bring contacts to Nimble via PieSync to be able to follow up and manage your company contacts. Combining Nimble with with Google Contacts or G Suite allows administrators and teams to manage company contacts in a shared Nimble team database.

Setting Up Sync 

Thanks to PieSync's team features, you and your colleagues can sync contacts in Google Contacts or G Suite into Nimble.  PieSync will check for duplicates by using the contact email address as the unique identifier.   

Syncing Options

With PieSync, you can set up two-way or one-way sync between Nimble and other sources. 

Sync from Google to Nimble
Don't sync your complete Google Contact list, create intelligent sync rules by filtering by groups found in Google Contacts and G Suite. This way, you remain in full control of which contacts are synced to Nimble.

Sync from Nimble to Google
All contacts that are added to Nimble will also be synced by PieSync into the corresponding Google Group.

What happens to deleted contacts?
If you delete a contact in either source, PieSync will label the deleted contacts as "trash" in the other source so you can manually check and then delete them there too (explanation video)

If you have any questions, please write us at care@nimble.com, initiate a chat from this FAQ, or join one of our Nimble Onboarding and Best Practices sessions, held every weekday at 9 AM PT.
