Get the Most Out of FullContact
Thanks for choosing FullContact. Whether you’re using FullContact on the web, via your mobile device or you’re getting started with FullContact Gmail extension, there’s a lot that you can do that you may not know about yet. We’re here to help.
To get the most out of FullContact, we recommend that you use it on the web as well as on your mobile device. All FullContact apps synchronize with each other, but FullContact on the web gives you a powerful, comfortable interface for your first setup. With that said, let’s start there.
FullContact on the web
1. Open your FullContact address book and load up your contacts – If you’re using Gmail or Outlook you can connect your account directly to FullContact. Yahoo, Hotmail and other email users will need to export their contact to a CSV file and then import them to FullContact.
2. Connect your social media accounts. Doing so will help you to find out more about the people in your address book, and it will help you keep track of where you’re connected to another person.
3. Choose your Unified Contacts sync settings. For each connected account, you can choose whether we will add people to your Unified Contacts, only update people who are already in your contacts, or ignore the network completely. You can see an example setup below:
4. Let FullContact work its magic. It will take a bit of time for us to find your duplicate contacts and pull the rich social data into your address book.
5. Verify the accounts where we’ve removed duplicates. If we’re not absolutely sure that a contact is a duplicate, you’ll have the chance to approve the merge before it happens.
6. If you’re not a FullContact Premium user, it will take up to 24 hours for your changes to reflect back to your Google account. Premium users will see their updates reflect in real time.
FullContact for Mobile
2. Log in to your FullContact account using the same credentials that you used on the web, or via your Google account.
3. Enable device synchronization. We do this through CardDAV, which you can read about here. Device sync will not update your iCloud contacts.
4. From the Settings menu, you can modify your sync settings (just like on the web), choose how contacts are displayed and choose the default actions that you’d like to assign when you interact with a contact.
5. FullContact Premium users get 1,000 business card scans via the app each year. If you need to add more, you can select Store from the left menu to buy Card Packs and top off when you run out.
6. Let FullContact be your main address book on your phone. The more that you use it, the more you’ll love its powerful features that your mobile device’s default address book just doesn’t have.
