Connecting Your Gmail

To connect your Gmail account with your CRM, you will first need to generate an “App Password” from your Google account. To do so, you would need to go to the Google account of the Gmail email you are trying to connect with your CRM. Once you are on the Google account, you can follow the steps provided below:

 

1. Click on the 9 dots menu

2. Click on the account tab

 

 

Security Settings

Once you click on the “Account” Go to the Security Section of your Google Account. Then navigate to the “Signing in to Google” section and turn on the 2-step verification then, click on the “Get started” button to move to the next step.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sign in Google Account

Next, Enter your Gmail password and click on “Next” to proceed ahead.


 

 

Add a Second step to Sign in

Add a device as your second step to sign in and click on the “Continue” button. This device will get a notification to confirm your login to any new device and logins.
