Turn Back Time on Your Google Contacts Sync

Have you ever made a mistake when syncing your contacts between different software and mobile devices?  WORK[etc] now includes a smart "wind-back-time" to help you sort out conflicts that are bound to happen when you have multiple devices, multiple offices and remote staff all syncing the same contact database.

Now available for beta-testing is the much awaited, automatic two-way sync between WORK[etc] Contacts and Gmail (Google) Contacts.

This release is the very first step in WORK[etc] ‘s solution to the contact synch dilemma.  How exactly do you sync contacts reliably between multiple people in the same company, all using multiple devices, multiple software tools and working across different timezones?Cher wishes she could Turn Back Time

As you can surely imagine, the possibility of total chaos is very real.  A single, incorrect contact has the potential to spread through an entire organization like a virus; from device to device, person to person.

We’ve approached this problem by creating WORK[etc] as the central location for all contact syncs and then built in a “turn back time” function that allows you to revert to an older version of that contact.

You can then automate which contacts to use live in WORK[etc] by turning on a number filters such as “always use the most recent contact” or “always use contact changes from Salesforce”.

The first beta release is Google Contact Sync only.  Then once we’re happy with that, we’ll release the Outlook Sync (via our Outlook CRM Add-in), then Salesforce and so on.

Using the tool is straightforward:

View all sync conflicts on a single screen

Auto-select correct source / manually select field

Get it now…

We have a handful of customers using it right now and will make available maybe 8 slots per day.  This is intentionally a very slow rollout as it is such an important feature.
