Google/Gmail Provider

We get email, contacts and calendar meetings from Google. These are all used to either process emails, process meetings, send emails thru the UI, and create and update contacts.

Connecting

The easiest way to connect Google to SigParser is to click the Google button which will use OAuth2 to connect. This means even if your password for Google changes, SigParser will still have access.

Creating and Updating Contacts

SigParser can update and create contacts in Google Contacts based on what SigParser finds. It will only fill in fields that are blank.

Update Settings

Contacts updated will be added to a group called

Fields:

  • Given Name, Family Name
  • Organization
    • Title
    • Address
    • Will only add an Organization if one doesn't already exist.
  • Phone Numbers
    • work, home, mobile, work, assistant, other, voip, fax
  • Group: "Updated By SigParser"
    • Contacts created by SigParser will be added to this group. If the group doesn't exist, SigParser will create it.

Create Contact Settings

Will only create contacts that have an email address and one of the following: Title, Address, or Phone Numbers and that contact was found in the attached email account. We won't add contacts coming from another email account to your Google Contacts directory.

  • Given Name, Family Name
  • Organization
    • Title
    • Address
  • Phone Numbers
    • work, home, mobile, work, assistant, other, voip, fax
  • Group: "Created By SigParser"
    • Contacts created by SigParser will be added to this group. If the group doesn't exist, SigParser will create it.

Data Update Frequency

Once per day it will connect to each Google mailbox and pull down the latest emails, contacts and meetings.

Security Considerations

The users listed under "Accessible By" for an Google Mailbox will have access to any contacts, emails, calendar meetings or attachments which are in that mailbox. So it is important to only grant access to this mailbox to the owner and whoever needs to
