I am pretty sure they are currently working on integration with Google and O365 contacts and calendars.  Stay tuned..

Ridiculous. Being able to manage phone contacts is THE most basic feature of any phone system. No one is using Glip right now because of a complete lack of contact management. Focusing on implementing contact import functionality instead of contact management through Glip is not smart.

I agree.  I can use this company wide and would be a perfect fit with contact integration.  A phone app number one feature is to save PHONE NUMBERS...  hum...  When will this be released?  Thank you

Hey Manuel, could you provide more details? Where are you wanting Glip to pull contacts from?

For me?   I dont really care where they have to be pulled FROM, as long as it is a central database that ALL staff can access and add to.  The logical thing to me would also include the ability to edit/add contacts (accessible by all staff) to the company directory.

The Company/Group contacts feature in GSuite is a little to complex for the needs of a small business (but workable).   

This would be FAR better than regularly having to go and do an upload (like a painful out of date archaic sync) to each staff member.  THEN also motivating them to make changes/additions to their personal address book and to not loose faith that eventually those changes will be merged and synced with everyone else...

You get the picture, and yes, we are using both Glip and RC Phone.   Our staff can choose which they prefer at this stage because to be honest, until this feature is available theres no reason for them to be forced to use glip (not that it should take much forcing, its clearly the better app).

They should be able to view all Google contacts through G-Suite so the entire office would have the same set of contacts.  Or at least the mobile RingCentral app should be able to view my own Google contacts like the RCPhone app does.

I miss the ability to sync my contacts from my gmail account.  This existed in the phone app... but not on glip... It would be awesome if that functionality, in the state that it's in now on the phone app, was transferred to glip.

Edit also the way the calendar was synched would be nice too.
