Install Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook®
Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook® is a plug-in for Microsoft Outlook® 2003, 2007, 2010, or 2013 that lets you keep using Outlook to manage your Google Apps for Business or Education account. Specifically, Google Apps Sync syncs your mail, contacts, calendar events, Outlook notes, and tasks between your Google profile in Outlook and your Google Apps account in the cloud, so you can access the same information at any time from either interface.
- If you haven't already, sign in to your Google Apps account on the web at least once, to accept Google's Terms and Conditions.
- Install Google Apps Sync on the computer where you run Outlook, using one of the methods below (whichever one applies for you). Note that installing Google Apps Sync also installs Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Outlook®, which lets you import Outlook data to Google Apps (more on that, soon).
