Getting Started with FullContact for Gmail
FullContact for Gmail is a powerful extension for the Chrome web browser that lets you access your FullContact account right inside of your Gmail tab. You can gain additional insights about the people that you’re emailing, add them directly to your Unified Contacts, take notes on them and much more.
Get Started with FullContact for Gmail
Install – To get started with FullContact for Gmail, you’ll want to grab the extension from the Chrome Web Store.
Sign In – Once you have it installed, you’ll want to sign in with your FullContact account, or you can sign in with your Google account as well.
Refresh – This step isn’t always required, but if you don’t see the sidebar appear in your Gmail, make sure to refresh the tab.
Explore and Enjoy – Start finding out more about the people that you’re emailing, or those who have emailed you. You’ll notice that the sidebar is set up with tabs. The main tab shows an overview of the contact, the social tab shows what they’re talking about on Twitter and finally the Company tab will give you insight as to where someone works if that information is available.
Force Updates with FullContact for Gmail
Google says that Chrome will check for updates to extensions several times per day. But sometimes you want that update now, not when Chrome decides to go look for it. Fortunately, forcing updates to Chrome extensions is a simple process.
1 – Head to chrome://extensions in your address bar. Alternately you can click on the top right menu of Chrome, click on Settings and then choose Extensions from the left side.
2 – Look for the “Developer Mode” checkbox at the top of the list of your installed extensions. Check the box.
3 – After checking the box, you will see an option to “Update extensions now”. Press this button and you should see all available updates get applied and the new version numbers showing.
That’s it! You should now have the latest version of all of your extensions. You can uncheck the Developer mode box if you want, but there is no harm in leaving it enabled.
