If your Google Account is through your work, school, or other group, you can use G Suite Sync for Microsoft® Outlook® (GSSMO) to synchronize your account with Outlook. Then, you can access the synchronized information (Gmail and other G Suite tools, such as Google Drive) in Outlook on any device where you use your Google Account. You’ll open Outlook just like you used to and use it to manage most of your data.
If you don’t want to use Outlook and would rather move your data from Outlook to your Google Account, see details on migrating the data instead.
Step 1: Install and set up GSSMO
First, you need to install GSSMO and create a G Suite profile in Outlook. You can then import data from your existing Outlook profile or from a PST file to your Google Account.
Step 2: Set your default Outlook profile
Outlook can open your G Suite profile automatically, making it easier to use GSSMO.
Step 3: Understand what gets synchronized
Email, calendar events, and contacts are regularly synchronized between G Suite and Outlook. Some other types of data aren't synchronized or are formatted differently in G Suite.
Step 4: See what's different about using Outlook with GSSMO
Some features in Outlook function differently when you are using GSSMO. For details, see:
- Outlook Mail with GSSMO
- Outlook Calendar with GSSMO
- Outlook Contacts with GSSMO
- Outlook Notes with GSSMO
- Outlook Tasks with GSSMO
Step 5: Check out the G Suite web interface
Learn about what’s different when you access your Google Account in Outlook instead of the G Suite web interface. You can also see details about what to set up if you decide to use the G Suite web interface. Some G Suite features are just like Outlook. For those that aren’t, you can review when you should plan to use Outlook instead.
