Contacts and Groups

Note: Google Contact Groups ARE NOT the same as Google Groups.

  • Contact groups are set up by individual users and not accessible to other users. If a contact group is exported and shared with another user, any updates to the original contact group will not be shared to the other user.
  • Google Groups can be set up by domain administrators and/or individual users (depends on your domain’s settings). Google groups can be used for many purposes, including discussion forums, but also for sharing with groups.
