Workaround for lack of Google Workspace alias domain support


Hi all,

For those of us setup with Google Workspace alias domains the lack of support is really frustrating - it's basically stopping us moving to Pipedrive. Here's the main thread on that:

I've come up with a really simple workaround though - using the smart BCC option in gmail to automatically BCC all emails so they end up in Pipedrive. To do that you must first setup a forwarding address in gmail and to do that gmail sends an auth code. However in pipedrive you can't read that email without first adding the email to a whitelist (which requires a code going to that email). This creates a catch 22.

Could whitelisting the google no reply email for forwarding be considered? There seems very little risk (as far as I can see) in whitelisting gmail and would allow a host of other use cases as well. More info in this thread:

I tried conveying this to support but they were very dismissive.

    Yeah we also did that solution. Then you don't just stick with one system to communicate, you switch between two again. Okay but obviously not smooth 🙂

    @Alex_Optimize_Inspire to confirm how did you work around it? My post above was about a potential way to work around if Pipedrive made a change. The only way currently we could do it is to BCC manually every email which is painful. So any better solutions appreciated!
