Gmail to Salesforce - TRUE Integration

Salesforce Platform, Applications, Email, Google, Large Enterprise Ideas, Large Enterprise

Product Team Review

To integrate with Gmail and Google Apps, the proposed solution is to add the unique Email-To-Salesforce email address to be blind-copied on every email sent. Currently, emails BCC'd to one's personal add-to-Salesforce email address can be associated only with Contacts, not Contacts AND/OR opportunities as with the Outlook integration tool. This means that one must go to every individual Contact to view the overall Account or Opportunity activities. There is no master Opportunity or Account activity list. Additionally, adding emails received in Gmail is not possible. Only emails that Salesforce users send can be associated with Salesforce -- that is, only HALF of all correspondance is tracked. How is one supposed to manage Opportunities if is not possible to see all correspondance/activities in one place? Can the "Add to Salesforce" and "Sync" functionality available for Outlook not simply be added to Gmail?

Hi Everyone- this Idea is being reviewed by our product management team so that we can post a fresh update. I will share it with you once we have it available. 

Thanks to the recent enhancements we announced at Dreamforce 2014, every Idea that surpasses the new minimum point threshold (2,500 points) will be sent to the product team for review (and/or a fresh update) in their roadmap planning process. Once they make a determination, an update will be posted and regular updates will occur going forward. 
Our main goal with this big initiative is to provide you answers. While we would love to deliver every Idea- there will be ones that we won’t be able to pursue. When and if that happens we’ll explain why and provide alternative solutions if possible. To date, we’ve delivered over 2 million vote points, so your role in developing our product strategy is critical! We are extremely excited about this enhanced level of transparency and look forward to improving your IdeaExchange experience and deepening the level of collaboration between you and our product managers.
