Syncing Google calendar contacts

Post by faircot » Wed Sep 12, 2012 1:53 am

I've recently bought a licence for VM Pro and I'm pleased with it. It works well with my Google calendars except that I can't see a way of syncing changes to my contacts between my GMail account and VM on this machine. It's not practical just to make changes in Gmail and import the entire list after every minor change. Appointments and tasks sync perfectly.

Have I missed something somewhere?

Hi faircot, welcome to the forums. Unfortunately, VueMinder does not yet auto-sync contacts with Google. However, this is on my list of planned improvements. I’ll post a reply when it’s completed.

In the meantime, you can use the “Import Contacts” command (on the File menu in VueMinder) to import contacts from Google into VueMinder. If you need to transfer VueMinder contacts back to Google, use the “Export Contacts” command to export to a CSV file, and then import that file into Google.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

That's a real shame, Dan, and the workaround to import/export the entire contact file isn't particularly friendly. If I have to directly access my Gmail account to make updates, then it (for me) limits the excellent practicality of VM.

Hope you can implement this feature soon!

I second this request. It would be great to sync contacts from Google

This improvement is scheduled to go into version 10.2.0. I'll post a reply when it's available. There will probably be a public beta for anyone that wants an early look.
