How are Sync Sets used with the Contact Sync feature?

The Contact Sync feature relies on Sync Sets to determine which Salesforce Contacts to sync to Google Contacts. 

Sync Sets are a set of filter criteria that define a collection of Contacts in Salesforce. You set the filter criteria and give each Sync Set a name. This name will be used to tag contacts that are copied to Google Contacts, so that you can easily identify contacts in a specific group.

In the example below, the "Partner Contacts" Sync Set has been created. When these contacts are synced to Google Contacts, they will be added with the tag/group "CI - Partner Contacts". If you sync your Google Contacts to your mobile device, the group will also be visible.

To create a Sync Set, follow these steps.

1. Click the Wrench icon to access the Settings for Cirrus Insight.

Sync Set filter criteria can be as simple (as in the example above) or complex as you need. Up to five filter criteria can be defined, each one filtering down the set of possible matching contacts (using the "AND" operator). 

10. To ensure your Sync Set will sync the desired contacts, you can click the ´╗┐Test´╗┐ button before you save the Sync Set. 

Testing a Sync Set will run the query created by the Sync Set and tell you how many Contacts in Salesforce match your criteria. Based on the outcome, you may alter the parameters to provide the desired results.

Click the Save button when completed.
