Decide what happens when a contact is updated in Google Contacts or HubSpot.

There are three separate configurations you can select:

  • One-way sync from HubSpot to Google Contacts (Default)
  • One-way sync from Google Contacts to HubSpot
  • Two-way sync

One-way sync from HubSpot to Google Contacts

This configuration will sync all new and updated contact information from HubSpot to Google Contacts.

Two-way sync

This configuration will sync all new and updated contact information from HubSpot to Google Contacts and from Google Contacts to HubSpot. For contacts that already exist in both platforms, their contact properties will be merged.

Please note: by enabling two-way sync all of your contacts will sync from Google to HubSpot, including all personal contacts.

Deleting contacts

The integration will not delete contacts when they have been deleted in the other app.

Handling duplicates

By default, HubSpot will only sync contacts that have a valid email address. You can turn this off by clearing the checkbox.

Resolving data conflicts

When you have two-way sync enabled there may be some data conflicts that will need to be resolved. For example, in HubSpot, the First name of a contact is Dave while in Google the First name of that same contact is David. This is a conflict that will be resolved by looking at the defaulting app. If there is no value in the field in the defaulting app, no data will be removed from the other app.

Please note: this setting does not overrule sync direction.
