Last week we quietly released a highly-requested and anticipated new feature of gPanel – importing of shared contacts from a csv file, complete with data preview and user-selectable columns. We think it’s really slick.

Many of our customers have been describing their frustration with not having access to edit, add, delete shared contacts in the Google Apps cPanel. One-by-one editing doesn’t really help when you have 1,000 shared contacts to import, either. This puts the issue to rest.
In addition to the myriad of other powerful gPanel features, GA administrators can continue to rest easy knowing that gPanel fills more “how do I do [fill in the blank] in my Google Apps” gaps than any of our competitors … oh and at a really low annual subscription rate! 🙂

Check it out from gPanel by going to the Shared Contacts module and looking for the new “Import Contacts” button in the grid.
Special note: if exporting your personal Google Apps contacts for importing into shared contacts, be sure to export using the Outlook CSV format, NOT the Google CSV format. We assure you that no information is lost in the process…
