Import contacts into Google Workspace

Use G Suite Migration for HCL Notes (GSMIN, formerly G Suite Migration for IBM Notes) to migrate each user's personal contacts and groups into Google Workspace. 

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

Step 1: Export contacts from Notes

Refer to your HCL Notes documentation to see how to export contacts to a vCard (.vcf) file. Make sure you specify that 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 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 have created in HCL Notes.
