    Sync all contact data to your mobile device

    When you use Contacts with a work or school account, some of your contact data might not sync automatically to your mobile device. For example, to sync missing data from a contact’s Google+ profile, a company directory, or other sources, you may need to use an app or other solution.

    Exactly what information syncs can depend on your device’s operating system and version. To see your contact data:

    1. On your computer, open Contacts.
    2. Click the contact name to open their details.
    3. Hover over a detail, such as their phone number or birthday. Then look at the icon to the right.

      The Domain directory Domain directory or the Google+ Google plus icons highlight information that’s coming from an outside source. This information doesn’t automatically sync to your mobile device.

    Note: You’ll only see additional contact information, such as directory or Google+ data, if your organization has turned on Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections.
