Work efficiently with your Gmail/GSuite or Outlook email and calendar in Shape Software CRM—together in one place. This email integration lets you send emails and share calendar events within your Shape Software system.
Click your profile picture in the top right and select “Profile Settings” to be taken to your personal profile. Once here, click the tab labeled “Email & Calendar” where you will integrate your Gmail or Outlook.
You will be prompted to enter the login credentials for the email you are wanting to connect.
Once connected, there are 3 options for the email calendar sync:
After connecting your Gmail or Outlook Online account, your manually sent emails will be sent through your connected email account. (Drip Campaign and Triggered Emails are not sent via your email server but instead are sent through Shape’s server.)
You also have the option to have your emails forwarded into Shape as well! Only emails received by your connected email will forward into the system. It is also important to note that only emails received in your connected email, with a matching email address in Shape, will be forwarded. Emails unrelated to the contacts in your CRM will not be forwarded.
Simply log into your email account outside of Shape and navigate to your account settings.
Each email provider is different but there will be a section titled “Email forwarding” or something similar. If you are unable to find this section in your email, reach out to your email provider for direction.
Back in your profile in Shape, copy the email forwarding address and paste it into your forwarding settings in your email and follow the instructions provided by your email to complete the forwarding if any.
Once complete, you will find the forwarded emails in your Shape system by clicking on the “Inbox” icon!
This can be due to the following reasons:
The fix for this is simply disconnecting your integrated email and re-connecting!
This could be caused by a number of settings outside of Shape. DMARC settings controlled within your email settings are typically the main issue when it comes to email deliverability.
