Troubleshooting

If after connecting your Google contacts with Smartsheet, and you still can’t access the contacts of the shared label, make sure you enabled the “Mobile & Outlook” toggle.

We highly recommend making sure the Mobile and Outlook toggle is always selected. Activating the toggle ensures your shared contacts are synced to your general Google Contacts and not only visible in your shared labels, making integrations with Zoom and other various apps hassle free.
