Does Google Apps for Work only sync with Mac OS iCalendar, eMail, and contacts?

Is Outlook on the Mac only good for email download?  I like to incorporate all syncing functionality like Google Apps Sync for Windows.

Yeah, that's the same thing I was looking at.  I was hoping for something a bit more substantial and or informative.  I would like to keep everything in one ecosystem ala old Outlook with Exchange.  This older client is not a fan of the gmail interface.

Yes I use a program on the PC called gSyncit but it does not look like they have a Mac version.

Google Apps Sync for MS Outlook is Windows only ... it does not work with Outlook on the Mac as Outlook on the Mac does not allow plug-ins.

Think about adapting the gmail interface by turning off threaded discussions; setting up a custom priority inbox; and providing training on the search bar.

Hmmm, I did not know you could turn off threads or really didn't attempt to figure it out.  Thanks!  I was tempted to setup syncing to icalendar and contacts.  I'm not sure if that's common and helpful for a productive workflow provided that Outlook seems useless.

iCal and contacts is often problematic.  We urge all of our Mac customer/users to go with the web interface.
