Import contacts from HCL Notes into Google Workspace

Google Workspace Migration for HCL Notes

Use Google Workspace Migration for HCL Notes (GWMHN) to migrate each user's personal contacts and groups from HCL Notes into Google Workspace.

Alternatively, users can import personal contacts using a vCard (.vcf) file. The vCard file that Notes produces might not contain every contact field supported by Google Workspace. The significant contact fields are imported, however.

Step 1: Export contacts from HCL Notes

Consult your HCL Notes documentation on how to export contacts to a vCard (.vcf) file. Make sure you specify the file should use the native character set. Then, save the file to your computer.

If you're exporting more than 3,000 contacts, create 2 or more smaller vCard files and import these files separately.

Step 2: Import contacts into Google Workspace

Get your users to import the vCard file to their personal contacts by following the instructions in Add, move, or import contacts.

Note: You can't import any mailing or distribution lists you’ve created in HCL Notes.
