Would it be possible for the next version of Pipedrive to syncronize better with Gmail ? Currently when I archive an email in gmail it doesn't get archived in PipeDrive. Could it be possible to developp this feature in the next version ?

    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

    It would be wonderful if my inbox in PD would match my inbox in Outlook. When I delete an email in Outlook it will delete it from my inbox in PD, but the same can't be said for archiving. Can you please add this to the "wish list?"

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

    Yes, this is a mess for us as well.
    Consider finding another platform.

    Hi all

    This has been an issue from Day One that has kept me from using Pipedrive as a full time email client. I've disconnected my account on several occasions and it hasn't helped. 


    Emails that I archive in my gmail inbox still appear in my pipedrive inbox. Only emails that I archive within pipedrive actually get archived within pipedrive. So effectively my inbox is out of sync. 


    It's not an issue of timing as there are emails I archived months ago in my pipedrive inbox. 


    If I can't have my inbox in real time it makes it impossible to hit inbox zero or be able to use pipedrive as an email client. 


    Please advise thanks!

    Hi @Dan Millen!
    At the moment this behaviour is expected with our Email sync feature. Under Email Sync settings, you can select if archiving an email in Pipedrive will also  archive the same email in your synced email account or not. However, archiving emails in your email client will never archive emails in Pipedrive. You can check more details in our Email Sync article. If you have any other questions or doubts, feel free to reach out to our Support via chat or email (support@pipedrive.com).

    Pretty please with sugar on top get this done asap!  I can't even fathom why it wasn't included from day one or how / why it's not being treated with any urgency.

    Hi Kreete,

    Thanks for explaining this to Dan Millen. I'd like to better understand this part > 
    "However, archiving emails in your email client will never archive emails in Pipedrive."

    Why is that? This is,  I think, the main request from Dan and I would also love this to happen. 

    If, in Gmail, I archive an email, I'd like that same email in Pipedrive email view to also be archived/deleted. Right now, in Gmail i only have 5 emails in my inbox, but my pipedrive inbox has over 50 (useless) emails like accepted meeting invites, etc that don't go away after archiving them in gmail.

    Hope this adds some extra value to the request / issue of Dan and would also benefit me :)

    Hello!

     

    Archiving an email in gmail, simply means to remove the inbox label. If the email is not currently located in the inbox, then archiving the email in pipedrive will have no effect on the email in the gmail and vice versa.

    I hope this answers your question.

    Thanks helio for your insights on labels.

    the question is actually the other way round:

    • if I archive an email in Gmail, i want the same email in pipedrive also to be automatically archived.

    now: 

    1. i archive email #3 in gmail to keep my inbox clean and easy
    2. although  email #3 is archived in gmail, the same email #3 is still in the pipedrive inbox
    3. I need to also manually archive email #3 in pipedrive inbox to keep both gmail and pipedrive’s inboxes in sync

    suggested setup:

    1. i archive email #3 in gmail to keep my inbox clean and easy
    2. the same email #3 is automatically archived also  in the pipedrive inbox

     

    hope this explains the need further.

    i can also discuss over phone or screenshare if preferred

    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!

    As much as I see the advantage to managing my email in Pipedrive the UX is a bit cumbersome for me. One thing that might greatly improve the experience would be a contextual menu that when clicking on an email would offer options like Archive, Delete, Share, etc.

    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.

    Thanks, and please let us know either way. It's radio silence on this front. If it's not on the radar or not going to be done then I'd like to know... email functionality in PD is useless without it.  @Matthew Larner @Jeffrey Dromeshauser

    I fully agree and don't understand.  Do they really believe that if they cripple the sync that we will move over to Pipedrive only for email. that is ridiculous

    Hi @John Marsh noted! I've asked the email team to put this on the wish list.

    Hi John, I checked with our product manager for the area. So far there are no plans but she understands this is a very reasonable suggestion. She promised to ask the engineers regarding the effort needed to see if it can be prioritised. But no promises unfortunately.
