When this happens...
FreshBooks ClassicNew Client

FreshBooks is great for team time tracking and invoicing, but you still need a tool to email your clients. If your typically follow-up with your contacts in Gmail then you can use Zapier to automatically add new FreshBooks clients to Google Contacts as new contacts. Once you set up this FreshBooks Google Contacts integration, new clients from that point forward are individually added as new contacts in Google Contacts. That way, whenever you need to email any of your clients, their address will only be a click away in Gmail.

Note: This Zapier integration doesn't create contacts from existing FreshBooks clients, only clients added to FreshBooks after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A new FreshBooks client is created
  2. Zapier adds that client data to Google Contacts as a new contact
