If your organisation's teams collaborate using Podio, you can use Zapier to start automatically adding new Google Contacts to a Podio application. You can even drive the integration to Podio by assigning a specific Contact Group in Google Contacts.

Once you set up this Google Contacts Podio integration, new contacts from that point forward are individually added to Podio as new items in an application.

Note: This Zapier integration doesn't import existing contacts into Podio, only new contacts after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A new Google Contacts contact is created, optionally with a Group assigned.
  2. Zapier adds that contact as a Podio item.

What You Need

  • Google Contacts account
  • Podio account
