Set Google Team Inbox

Learn how to connect to Google Team Inbox and start sending and receiving emails directly through the system.

By using Team Inbox, you can manage all your emails directly from the system and centralize your workspace. Team Inbox also helps you easily track all your email correspondence and work together with other system users to respond to emails. This article will walk you through the exact steps you need to take in order to set up a Google Team Inbox. You can integrate multiple team inboxes into the system.

Important note: If you’d like to integrate an Office 365 account, the process only requires an email address and password, so this article is not applicable to you. You can find a guide here.

Preliminary setup

Before connecting a Google Team Inbox to Fireberry, you’ll need to ensure you have all the necessary accounts. Be sure you meet the following conditions:

  1. You have a Workspace account.
  2. You are defined as an Admin in the Workspace account.
  3. You have a Google Developer Console account.
  4. You are defined as an Admin in the Google Developer Console account.

If all the above conditions are met, follow the steps below to set up your Google Team Inbox integration with Fireberry. If not, first set up the necessary accounts, and then use the steps below.
