Thanks to Shared Contacts for Gmail, sharing contacts’ labels is easy, intuitive and fast. All one has to do is to open Google Contacts, create a label and share that label using Shared Contacts for Gmail’s dashboard. 

But is there an even easier and faster way to share contacts?

A way that won’t require to open multiple windows nor to use a third-party app?

Yes, there is! Follow the guide to find out more about it.

Sharing labels with Shared Contacts for Gmail’s dashboard is simple…

Take a look at our example:

Lena is a Shared Contacts for Gmail’s frequent user. She works in an Italian travel agency that organizes various tour guides all across Italy.

Every year around Christmas, the agency organises a special tour to Vatican City (up to 20 people for 2 tour guides). At the end of October, 13 people have shown interest in the Vatican Tour.

Lena wants to pass the list of participants and their contact details to Marco, one of the guides who will be in charge of the Vatican Tour:
  • She opens a window for Google Contacts Manager and creates a label for that purpose (“Vatican Tour 2020”) 
  • She opens another window for Shared Contacts for Gmail and shares directly from that window the label “Vatican Tour 2020” with Marco
  • She gives to Marco the permission to edit; so if tourists contact directly Marco regarding the tour, he will add their contacts details directly under the “Vatican Tour 2020” label
Lena finds it very practical and simple to share the “Vatican Tour 2020” label with Marco in such a way, BUT she is wondering whether there is an easier way to do so, to save more time and not to juggle with multiple open windows.

So… could she share the “Vatican Tour 2020” label…. Even easier?

Sharing labels directly from Google Contact is even more simple
At Shared Contacts for Gmail, we have just introduced a new Chrome extension - downloadable on the Chrome Webstore.

Thanks to this extension, all the sharing can be done directly from Google Contacts!

It is ridiculously simple and intuitive: you can share labels in the exact same way you share a folder in your Drive, by clicking on the share icon.

Once you’ve shared a label from Google Contact, yo will be able to choose the permission you want to give. You can give another user the right to:
  • View only
  • Edit
  • Delete
  • Share
  • Be the owner of the shared label 

Lena now gets all her questions answered! She can share the “Vatican Tour 2020” label with Marco without juggling with multiple open windows, AND she can save precious time and improve her productivity drastically.

She can easily choose the Edit permission directly from the Google Contacts window, so Marco can add any other relevant contact details when tourists contact him for the Vatican Tour!

Willing to give it a go? Try us out!
