How To: Syncing contacts from Teamleader Focus to Google Contacts

The Google Contacts synchronisation is restricted to one way only: from Teamleader Focus to your Google Contacts. A new group called "Teamleader" will be created into which all of your Teamleader Focus contacts (not companies) will be exported. Extra info will be provided, such as the related company if there is one and the phone number of that company.

Changes you make to those contacts in Google will not be synchronized to Teamleader Focus. If you want to maintain the changes to your contacts, you have to edit them in Teamleader Focus. This synchronisation runs every hour and cannot be activated manually.

To be able to use the synchronisation, you have to have export rights activated in your Teamleader Focus account settings. Follow the next steps to install the Google Contacts integration:

  1. Navigate to your user icon in the top right-hand corner and click on “Integrations/Marketplace
  2. Search for “Google Contacts” in the search field
  3. Choose “Google Contacts” and click “Add
  4. Log in with your Google account and authorize access to the services which are required
  5. Now click on the slider next to “Google Contacts”

Note that you also get the opportunity to synchronize “Google Agenda".

6. Click “Save


  • In Teamleader Focus it is only required to fill out the field 'Last name' whereas in Google Contacts it is required to have the first name, the last name, and one of the following list: phone, mobile or email. If these fields are not filled out in Teamleader Focus, those contacts will not be synced with Google Contacts.
  • It's not possible to initiate the synchronisation of contacts. This synchronisation will automatically take place every hour.
  • During the initial synchronisation only 10 000 contacts can be synced. If you want to synchronise more contacts, you'll first have to create a segment of less than 10 000 contacts and indicate that segment to be synced first.After the first sync you can change the sync to 'all contacts'.
