💡 Integration now only works for Google Email (Gmail).

Recommended procedutre for integrating your Google e-mails to CAFLOU:

  1. *In the administration of your company Google account (Google Admin), add CAFLOU as a verified third-party application
    1. Direct link is https://admin.google.com/u/2/ac/owl/list?tab=configuredApps or use navigation: Security->Access and data control->API controls->Manage third-party app access->Add app (with Client ID)
    2. Client ID for CAFLOU is 275497493680-6fatnhnlrej17qb0l3ol75rd8npvq5ud.apps.googleusercontent.com
  2. In the Settings section of the Companies section, in the Basic settings section, check the synchronization settings (synchronization is enabled by default)
    1. Choose from which positions to synchronize e-mails (from the position of e-mails listed in companies and contacts):
      1. Sender (FROM) - the e-mail listed in the company or in the company's contacts is the sender of the e-mail
      2. Recipient (TO) - the e-mail listed in the company or in the company's contacts is the direct recipient of the e-mail
      3. Carbon Copy (CC) - the e-mail listed in the company or in the company's contacts is the recipient of the e-mail in carbon copy
      4. Blind carbon Copy (BCC) - the e-mail listed in the company or in the company's contacts is the recipient of the e-mail in blind carbon copy
    2. Choose whether to also upload e-mail attachments to CAFLOU
    3. Choose whether to automatically assign the e-mail directly to the project or task (in the subject of the e-mail it is necessary to state a unique project/task ID in the form #1234#, e.g. "RE: I am expanding the project assignment #1234#")
  3. In the My Profile settings in CAFLOU, each user whose emails are to be tracked will allow CAFLOU to access their Gmail (for viewing / reading email messages) and, after permission is approved, select "Add Gmail integration"

*If you do not perform step 1, you can continue to use sync and continue with the next setup steps, however when allowing CAFLOU to access the e-mail, CAFLOU be displayed as an unverified application.

After performing the above steps (required steps are 2 and 3), CAFLOU will start synchronizing the e-mails.

🕟 Synchronization takes place in cycles with an interval of 10 minutes (e.g. 7:00, 7:10, 7:20 etc.).

If in the linked e-mail appears a message from an e-mail or to an e-mail adress listed in the company or in the company's contacts and the position of the e-mail corresponds to the synchronization settings (sender / recipient / carbon copy / blind carbon copy), then the message is saved under that company as a comment (including an attachment, if selected in the sync settings).
