Download, sign in, and import

Sign in to Google Apps

After Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook® (GASMO) downloads and installs, you're prompted to sign in to your Google Apps account. Remember that this must be a Google Apps for Business, Education, or Government account. Signing in here lets Google Apps Sync connect to your account to get ready for importing and synchronization.

Follow these instructions for using GASMO 3.3 and later:

  1. Enter your email address (the one you'll be using with your Google Apps account).
  2. Check Remember me (don't skip this step). Google Apps Sync needs to remember your password, otherwise it will ask you to sign in each time you start Outlook.
  3. Click Continue.
  4. The default browser will be launched and you'll be asked to sign into your Google Apps account. Enter your username and password then click Sign in.
  5. You'll then be asked to allow access for Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook. Click Allow access.
  6. When access has been granted, switch to Google Apps Sync and click Create profile, then Start Microsoft Outlook. Close the browser tab or window.
