The #1 Security & Management Tool for Google Apps

Create a database of external contacts and share with users



Since contact management is not natively built into the Google Admin Console, most organizations are looking for an inexpensive and well integrated solution. FlashPanel’s contacts functionality allows admins to import and maintain a list of contacts, such as vendors, suppliers, or customers who users may need to regularly email.

  • Create contacts manually, via spreadsheet, or by importing a folder from Google Contacts
  • Select which users, groups, or Org. Units to share contacts with, designated by tags
  • View tagged contacts organized within folders in Google Contacts and on mobile devices
  • Allow end users to create, edit, and tag contacts from FlashPanel

Use FlashPanel’s contacts functionality to make communicating with people outside of your domain easier.
