Example Use Cases

  • Automated Contact Syncing with CRM: Automatically update your CRM whenever you add or modify a contact in Google Contacts. This ensures that sales teams always have the most up-to-date contact information, and it saves time by removing the need for manual data entry.

  • Birthday Reminder System: Create a workflow that scans your Google Contacts for birthdays, then integrates with an email service app like SendGrid on Pipedream to send out personalized birthday greetings or offers on their special day. This can help in maintaining customer relationships and increasing brand loyalty.

  • Contact Enrichment and Segmentation: Set up a workflow that enriches new Google Contacts with additional data from a service like Clearbit. The enriched data can be used to segment contacts into different marketing campaigns based on their demographics, job roles, or interaction history, making your marketing efforts more targeted and effective.

Authentication

Google Contacts uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Contacts account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Contacts and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Google Contacts API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/contacts.readonlyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/contactshttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/contacts.other.readonly
