How Front syncs with Gmail/Office365


Moving to a new email client can come with a lot of questions! One of the common questions we receive from new customers is, "How does Front work with Gmail or Office 365?"

While a move to Front means you won't be using Gmail or Office365 anymore, here's an overview of how syncing works between the two systems.

Note: If you send from a shared mailbox in Office 365, the message will appear in the sent inbox of the shared mailbox.

O365 Folder Structure Sync:

  • When you connect an O365 channel, Front will try to fetch as many folders as we can from O365.
  • Front will create up to 100 tags to match those folders. Folders after the 100th will not result in a tag being created.
  • Front will pin up to 100 tags in your personal workspace. It may be less than 100 if you already have other tags pinned.
  • Front will pin tags to your personal workspace regardless of whether there is content in the tag.
  • Tags that are created but not pinned are accessible through the tag menu.
  • Folders that couldn't be translated into tags will fall into the normal workflow where a tag is created when a message belonging to the folder comes in.
