Girikon’s Gmail Contact Sync App is a native Salesforce app, which is used to sync contacts record between User’s Gmail and Salesforce account.
The Client requirement is that the APP should be capable to sync the contact records in both direction using the rest API. The main challenge here that the Gmail API support only one record to be updated and created in one API call and Salesforce we have the API call limit in one execution.
The Girikon Team Solution
We build a Salesforce native app that is used to export and import contact records from Salesforce to User’s Gmail Account using the Google REST API. Using this App we can sync the contact details in both the direction.
With the solution of “Google REST API”, we were able to sync the records in both direction.
- New screen to import contact from Gmail Account as well as export contact records from Salesforce to Gmail Account.
- This enabled syncing of contact records between Salesforce and Gmail Account from this single screen in Salesforce.
