While we continue to explore a syncing feature with Google Contacts, there are a lot of roadblocks that currently prevent this. The Nutshell Zap with Google contacts currently works to achieve the following automations:
Since we are only able to use the creation of a new Person in Nutshell to create a contact in Google contacts (so all of your new contacts moving forward will be created automatically in Google,) what we will need to do is export your Nutshell contacts, and import them manually into Google.
To export your People list, follow these instructions:
Login to Nutshell
Click the People tab
Check the box to the left of 'Person Name' to select all People in the list
Click 'Export' in the lower-right corner
This will produce a .CSV file (or 'spreadsheet') which can be imported to your Google account. To Import your Nutshell contacts to Google, follow these instructions:
In the top left, click More
Click Choose File.
Select your CSV file.
