Importing Contacts from Google Apps

The Import Contacts feature helps you import contacts from Google Apps to Zoho CRM. It gives you the advantage of accessing your Google contacts from Zoho CRM, without having to sign in to your Google account, every time you want to import. The imported contacts from Google Apps will be assigned to you and shared with Zoho CRM users as per your organizational hierarchy. We recommend that you import business contacts only.
