Managing connected address books and forcing a sync

How can I add/manage my contact sources (address books) like Google, iCloud, Exchange, etc.?

In Contacts+ for Web, you have two options for adding address book sources:

1. Use the blue [+] icon on your Web app account and click Source.

2. Add sources on your Settings page

Keep in mind that you can view all of your sources (individually or collectively) in the Tags dashboard; scroll down to Sources then click on your connected email address books, imported files, etc.

In Contacts+ for iOS, i) Tap on '+' button (top-right corner) -> Tap on Add Sync source -> Add Address Book (to add a new source).

ii) Tap on Account icon  (top-right corner) -> Settings -> scroll down to Address Books (manage your connected address books) -> Tap on  Add Address Book (to add a new source).

In Contacts+ for Android, Tap on Hamburger(top left corner three lines) -> Tap on settings -> Tap on Synced accounts -> Tap on the '+' icon (bottom-right corner) to add new address books.

In Contacts+ for Mac, click Contacts+ (menu dashboard) -> Preference -> Address Books


Where can I disconnect an address book?

You can disconnect an address book in the same location where you can add an address book. In Contacts+ for Web, specifically, you'll do this on your Settings page. Press on the three dots next to an address book - then press Disconnect.


How many contacts can I store in my Contacts+ account?

With a Basic (free) Contacts+ account, you can store up to 1,000 contacts. With a premium (paying) Contacts+ account, you can store up to 25k contacts (this includes your quantity of transcribed business cards contacts set to enrich your My Contacts list).


Where can I find a backup file of my contacts?

This direct link in the Web app; otherwise, click on your profile photo in the upper-right-hand corner -> click Account&Security -> click Backups&Restore. 


What happens if I turn syncing on for my Google Contacts, iCloud, and/or Exchange address book?

If you turn syncing  on for any of your connected email sources, you will be adding the contacts in that email source to your My Contacts. If you turn syncing on for multiple connected email accounts, all email sources will have the same contacts.

However, you can opt to keep the syncing turned  off for an email account. If you choose to turn it off, the contacts in that email source will not be added (as new contacts) to your My Contacts. Rather, you can manually add contacts from that source to your My Contacts later.

To view all contacts in a source that you have opted to keep the syncing off for, click Tags (home page of your Web app) -> scroll down to Sources -> click on the source.


What is the difference between ‘Only Update Existing Contacts' and ‘Add all contacts' in my Contacts+ account?

These are your sync settings. When importing a file, you choose   Only Update Existing Contacts or Add all contacts

i) If you choose  Only Update Existing Contacts, we will only update your existing contacts in your My Contacts (no new contacts will be added).

ii) However, if you choose Add All Contacts, we will add all contacts from your imported source to your My Contacts; simultaneously, we will update any of your existing contacts where it's necessary.


How do I force sync within Contacts+?

In Contacts+ for Mac, click File -> Sync Now.

In Contacts+ for iOS, click Contacts at the top of the home page (revolving arrows).
