"Unique Software For A Very Needed Function"

Comments: Outlook4Gmail is an essential add on that I use multiple times a day as my calendar is constantly changing during the day and I need updates performed on the fly. The few times I've had to reinstall the software and needed the license code again were taken care of quickly and easily with customer service. I am highly impressed and recommend it to anyone who needs this very much needed, basic functionality

Pros: When I went looking for software to allow updates between Outlook and Gmail, nothing affordable with full functionality could be found. Everything was too expensive, too klunky, or did too little. Outlook4Gmail fit the bill perfectly. I wanted to only update my contacts and calendars and this software fit my needs perfectly and at an extremely affordable price. I am a user for life.

Cons: The initial setup is a little klunky. Getting the contacts and calendars rules set up is not as intuitive as it could be but because I have technical knowledge I figured it out. If you aren't as familiar with add ons this could be a little problematic.

"The best of both worlds"

Comments: If you are used to work with Outlook but want to take advantage of other collabroation tools that Gmail has to offer, look no more to integrate the two.

Pros: Since I remember for my work email, I always used Outlook. It gave me a sense of extra organization with my emails and daily taks. I like the fact that you can customize the view in a simpler and cleaner way.
Also, the calendar, which is definitely my favorite feature, offers you many options to customize your activities and priorities as needed.
In my current job we use GSuite and even though is very easy to use I was still missing my "extra organization" that outlook had. I am glad I found a way to integrate the two with Outlook4gmail. I like the fact that they can get in sync easily and effectively, giving me the best of both worlds.

Cons: Given the fact that I work directly on Outlook4Gmail I have definitely noticed that sometimes both sending and receiving emails take longer that if I go directly to my Gmail. Sometimes even like 10 min, but other than that I can definitely don’t see myself using the google format instead of Outlook at work.

"It's OK"

Comments: I have used Outlook my whole career. I have never had to use Gmail prior to my current position. I am not a fan of Gmail. Prior to Gmail, I never had a problem integrating my work information with my phone. That said, Outlook4Gmail is the best option I could find to get me most of the way there. I have been using it for years and, at this time, have no plans to stop.

Pros: It's by far the best option to merge Outlook and Gmail that I could find. But it's not seamless and my experience has been fluky. That said, some of that could be attributed to the way my company has set up Gmail and my own shortcomings. I've tried other options and this one still seems to work the best.

Cons: I haven't found a lot of online help. Sometimes when I add info to my calendar or contacts, it doesn't seem to migrate to the Gmail calendar, and the integration with my iPhone is not good at all. But I don't know if that's a product of Gmail or my phone...or again, my own understanding of the setup.

"Outlook4Gmail is outstanding"

Comments: I have an online calendar on my website that pulls the information in from Google Calendar. With this software all I have to do is enter the calendar dates in Outlook and the software syncs with Google Calendar and Google Calendar syncs with my website. Saves a lot of time and hassles. I love it.

Pros: I have to say that customer support is the best! The functionalitiy of the software is great but when I have encountered an issue, support is right on the ball. I have never had to wait hours or days for their help. And usually the fix they suggest works wonders. I also like the seamless integration with Google Calendar. This has been a terrific product in my day to day workflow.

Cons: Sometimes it is "buggy" with Outlook. Usually happens when there is an update to Outlook but sometimes not. It will shut down with no warning.

"Quick and Easy Email Syncing"

Comments: I use this to sync my outlook calendar to my Gmail account, allowing me to check my appointments and meetings on my personal phone. Overall, it's a solid product, which is good, since it's also just about the only name in the game. The only real negative is that it will rarely freeze outlook, but if you wait long enough, or force shutdown of the app, it will recover.

Pros: - Quick and easy to use
- Allows bidirectional or unidirectional syncing
- Seemingly good continued support and development

Cons: - Can temporarily freeze Outlook at times while syncing
- Doesn't always seem to delete meetings that have been cancelled
