Add advanced contact information

Your Global Address List in Microsoft Outlook includes all users, groups, shared contacts, and resources defined for your Google Workspace account. As users are added to Google Workspace, they'll automatically appear in Outlook.

In addition, as an account administrator you can add contacts or customize fields using these methods:

  • Domain Shared Contacts API—This API allows client applications to retrieve and update external contacts that are shared with all users in a Google Workspace domain. All other Google services you're using have access to this contact list, as well.
  • Google Cloud Directory Sync (GCDS)—Can be used to configure Shared Contacts based on fields available in your organization's LDAP server, such as Microsoft Active Directory or HCL Domino.
  • Google Workspace Marketplace—Offers yet another way to add custom fields. Use the Google Workspace Marketplace to find business-oriented applications that integrate easily with Google Workspace.
