Two-way sync for Gmail allows users to integrate their Gmail account with the CRM and enables the synchronization of emails between the two platforms. This integration creates a connection between the platforms when the first email is sent from the CRM, and all subsequent emails in the thread will be synced between both platforms.
What is Gmail Two way sync?
Users can connect their personal Gmail email accounts and sync outgoing & incoming emails between the CRM and their personal Gmail accounts. Users can use their email accounts to send, receive & track emails.
The sync will be established between both platforms when an email thread is initiated from the CRM (first outbound message). All the subsequent emails in the thread will sync between both platforms.
This feature is a user-level setting and does not impact other users in the sub-account.

How does the 2-way sync work between the CRM and your email account?
You would need to send an email to a contact from the CRM to initiate the sync between both platforms.
NOTE: The first outbound email needs to be initiated from the CRM to establish the sync.
The sent email will show up in the sent inbox of the integrated Gmail account:
All subsequent messages in the email thread (initiated from the CRM) will be in sync. Outbound emails from your email will reflect in the CRM and vice versa.
