SLX & Gmail Integration

Status: Delivered in 8.1
by on ‎09-02-2010 05:21 PM

With the growth of Google Apps it would be very beneficial to have email and calendar integration with Gmail and Google Calendar.  Google is making a big push into the business world.  Many companies are adopting Gmail and ditching older industry standards for online alternatives.


Having some basic applications that allow SLX to integrate "Send SLX", "Record to History", and "Calendar Integration" would make a world of difference and not limit SLX to one primary email platform.


Is there progress in this area?  Do any third parties offer a currently available solution?

Interesting timing.  I just had a phone call with a customer about this very subject today -- their desire to integrate SLX with Google Apps Premier.  This is the third customer in the past few months to request this.

I put this idea in back in June as my company made the switch from outlook to Gmail.  Here is the link:


A solution needs to be in place soon as it is becoming more prevalent in the business world that externally hosted email platforms, such as Google mail and calendar, is being widely utilized.

Absolutely agree.


I'd LOVE to drop our Exchange server, all MS office apps, etc and go to using Gmail and Google apps. It would save me a lot of $$$. I know that there are clients out there who would like to do so as well.


We ALL are trying to spend out hard earned cash in a manner to achieve the highest impact at the lowest costs.


Call to all who see this idea and agree.. click on the kudos and vote for it now!
