Can we get a Google Meet integration?

I recently switched from Zoom to Google Meet, for two reasons...

  1. I think Zoom's UX is horrific (and I know many who agree).
  2. As a GSuite customer, it's just neater to use Meet.

It's far quicker and smoother for me to set up and join Google Meet sessions overall.

Any chance of a Pipedrive integration with Google Meet?

Cheers

    That would be great, I have also asked for it considering that Pipedrive already has several integrated gsuite apps (email, contacts)

    Hey @Alex Napier Holland  I've found a workaround for this that is okay for me at the moment. If you initiate a meeting in Google Meet, grab the link and add it into your PD meeting activities. When your guest books a time, the link will be included in the invite and in their calendar. Easy peasy. Obviously the Meet link is being used again and again, so anyone who has booked a meeting with you could technically join a future meeting if they happened to click the link at the right time, but I haven't seen this happen yet (and you can always remove a non-invited attendee). You can also change the link every so often. Hope that helps!

    A Meet integration would be great if PD can do it!

    Thanks. I guess this would work. It's just not super-elegant!

    As a Gsuite user, I also second the Google Meet integration.

    Hi @Alex Napier Holland @Hans Nieto @Andrew Klotz @Michael Y  , thank you for your suggestion!

    At the moment the next thing we have coming out of the oven in terms of virtual meeting integrations is Microsoft Teams, but  this doesn't necessarily mean it's where we stop (no promises, though) and I will definitely forward your input to our team for consideration in future developments. 

    As priorities and resource allocations for development have to be distributed and unfortunately not everything can be built or at least built in the near future. 

    Speaking of which, take these tips to stay on top of what’s coming down the line:

     

    As an alternative for this particular case, I would suggest you take a look at the platform integrations available in our marketplace, as they allow you to create automations outside the scope of our own native features. I did a quick search for you, take a look here.

    Hi,

    I also don't get it why Google Meet via G-Suite is not integrated.  Considering all the enquiries listed here so far, can't the  IT's team prioritise this integration? 

    It seems that it would make a lot of your customers happy.

    Thanks.

    Hi @Gianfranco Morbini !

    Right now there are no concrete short term plans to make these improvements. Unfortunately with many customers and requests and with limited development resources we need to prioritise and make choices what to deliver first.

    We have made sure, however, that our team will consider your suggestion for future developments. Speaking of which, here’s how to stay on top of what’s coming down the line:

    🔮 Follow What's Planned to know what we're working on currently and what’s to come.

    🌟 Follow What’s New and don’t miss any new releases.

    It would be very user friendly to have choice in the settings for example.
    So that means everybody should be happy right!?

    Anyway:

    +1 FOR GOOGLE MEET!

    Hello, why Microsoft Teams or Zoom meetings organized and made from PipeDrive dont automatically make activity as "done" (afret videomeeting) and why dont add notes like from, to, duration and link to recordings?

    Thank you, Zdenek
