Sync your Outlook contacts and calendars with Google accounts
Is there a chance to take up the challenge of managing a wide variety of accounts, calendars, profiles and contacts used every day at work or at home? If you frequently use Outlook and have at least one Google account, the need to synchronize your Outlook and Gmail contacts and calendars becomes evident quite soon.
Outlook4Gmail is a must-have Outlook add-in that provides easy synchronization of your Outlook and Gmail accounts (contacts and appointments).
The add-in supports synchronizing of Outlook and Google contacts with maximum details: Name, Company, Phones, Emails, Addresses, Dates, Persons, Notes, Contact Picture, Categories and Google Groups, etc. You can sync or update either Outlook or Gmail address book (one-way synchronization) or choose to update both accounts simultaneously (two-way synchronization).
Outlook4Gmail provides various ways of syncing Calendars: Import a calendar from Google into Outlook, Export an Outlook calendar to Google, Syncing existing calendars, Creating new calendars, etc.

Outlook4Gmail supports customization of conflict resolution rules. The rules are applied whenever application finds identical addresses in different address books. By default, "Full Name" contact field is used as a key field to differ accounts from each other. If such contact field is not defined or missing, email address is used (“Email1Address" for Outlook and "PrimaryEmail" for Gmail). User can prioritize Outlook, Gmail contacts or recently updated contacts to make sure that they will appear in the Contact list after synchronization.
What's more, Outlook4Gmail supports synchronizing of multiple Google accounts. You are able to define and synchronize a set of address books in real-time. When you select two-way synchronization, the data will be read in two iterations and contacts will be synchronized in all address books – both for Outlook and Gmail accounts.
You could automate synchronization with help of "Real Time Items Update" option. By enabling this option, any contact details update will start synchronization automatically in background. Another unique feature is automatic check-up for contact’s updates by time interval. All you need is to configure the settings just once and that would be enough for the add-in to update your contacts information automatically without any efforts from user.
Apart from synchronization of Google contacts and calendars, the add-in synchronizes Outlook contacts and appointments to Google as well.
If you use Outlook for more than one work and personal stations you can easily synchronize all clients by completing of two-way synchronization of Outlook clients with the required number of Gmail accounts.
Notice, that Outlook4Gmail establishes a secure connection on synchronizing items with Gmail. It is a requirement since Google supports only HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure).
