Hello All,

I'm currently looking for a way to sync Gmail contacts to an Outlook client. I have the Outlook client configured with the g-mail account. I've imported some contacts, but am unable to figure out how to sync contacts from the Gmail platform to the Outlook platform. My goal is to have both applications sync contact no matter if the users updates contacts from their phone, browser or Outlook client. I've been able to configure the Gmail Calendar to the Outlook client via a web link under account Internet settings tab. Any help or recommendations on how to accomplish this task is greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks,
Comment

I see this question has been marked as solved, but I thought I'd throw this out there in case your user has issues with the Go Contact Sync Mod solution.

I wrote an article on this topic on a commercial solution which solved the exact same problem for me:

HOW TO: Sync your Outlook Calendar, Contacts and Tasks without needing a G Suite Subscription!

Hope that's helpful.
