Archiving emails in Pipedrive from email client

I see an email sync setting that says "Archive in my email client when archiving in Pipedrive." Does the inverse exist? When I archive an email in my client, I would like it to archive in Pipedrive as well. No sense in having to deal with the same email twice.  I asked support the above question and they said that archiving is one way.  Does anyone have any clever work arounds?

    Hi @Stavros Michailidis , thank you for your feedback!

    Indeed archiving emails in your email client will not archive them in Pipedrive. I can see how that would be useful, so I've made sure to forward your suggestion internally for consideration.

    Have a great week!

    Hi Inês, 

    We are just about the use pipedrive as our new CRM (moving over from Hubspot) and it would be great, if the development team could look into this issue. For our current workflow it is essential, that emails archived in our mailing client (gmail / gsuite) are also displayed as archived one in pipedrive. 

    Do you have any news, if this feature request is already on the shortlist?

    Hi @Jan-Philip Riehle , happy to have with us and welcome to the Community! :)

    Currently there are no direct plans for it, but the team noted down your suggestion for when they'll work on updates again. The hardest job is to prioritise all ideas and suggestions from all our customers. This one hasn't made the cut yet unfortunately. Thank you for your understanding.

    Here’s how to stay on top of what’s coming down the line:

    I agree with the other inquiries. This seems like a basic necessity to stay on top of mail-inflow. 

    Please upvoted if possible

    Agreed, two way syncing for archived emails would be great.

    Hi guys! i recently joined pipedrive with a new company (call it I like your tool), but really miss above requested feature.

     

    it’s been 8 months ago sinc requested and 3 month ago since last status update. Can this be relooked at? It definitely is an annoying setup to not have both inboxes (gmail vs pipedrive) always in sync.

     

    thanks for rebumping this as feature request!

    This is a huge dealbreaker. This is a major product flaw. I can't understand why archiving an email in your email client wouldn't archive/delete it in Pipedrive.

    Any update on this feature?  I've just joined Pipedrive and agree with the tread, the email client in the app really does function well if the archived emails are not kept in sync!

    Has anybody figured out a workaround to prevent archived emails in Gmail from appearing in the Pipedrive inbox? The Pipedrive inbox is unusable without proper syncing.
