Google Contacts Sync: new and improved

Back in 2020, we launched an early version of Google Contacts Sync. Current release adds some significant functionality improvements.

  • Sync to NetHunt more customer details stored in your Google Contacts:
    address, website, birthday, Google Contacts labels, and Source is automatically marked as "Google Contacts".
  • Sync your contacts that are stored under multiple Google Contacts Labels.
  • Duplicates prevention is now governed by the new duplicate detection rules.
    NetHunt detects duplicate contacts not only by email, but also by phone, name, company and combination of these fields.

More advanced duplicate prevention

New duplicate detection works based on a combination of rules that you set for each folder: Contacts, Deals, Companies, etc. This way, you can make sure that the new data flowing into NetHunt from Google Contacts, LinkedIn or created manually is unique and has no duplicates.
Here are some of the combinations that you can use:

  • First name + Last name
  • Email + Company
  • Email + First name + Last name
  • Company + Country + Website

Important: Duplicate detection rules is a replacement and a better version of ‘Unique field’ functionality. We have automatically moved your unique fields into the new rules.
