Follow these easy steps to prepare the import:
- In your personal account settings, enable the G Suite integration.
2. Go to Setup > Import, and select G Suite.

After a few minutes, your import will finish up and your contacts will be in Nutshell!
Why can't I keep a two-way sync with Google Contacts?
While we continue to explore a syncing feature with Google Contacts, there are a lot of roadblocks that currently prevent this. Companies with hundreds of thousands of contacts can't effectively manage them in Google Contacts. Nutshell's clever deduplication would cause your contacts to be merged with your colleagues', and permissions can't be managed in Google Contacts.
It's not an impossible feat, and we'll let you know as we make progress on this. In the meantime, our beautiful Android and iPhone applications provide a great solution for accessing your entire collection of contacts and accounts from the road -- with rapid find-as-you-type support for hundreds of thousands of contacts.
