Get Contacts - Create contact

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to migrate Outlook Contacts to google. Unfortunately, I am to migrate more than 1000 Contacts in one go and it appears that my flow only migrates 256 Contacts at once (restriction of one of the connectors).

 

I thought, it would be a good idea to set up a flow that first gets the contacts from google, compares them to the ones in outlook and then creates the missing ones in google. This way, I would just start the flow several times, and eventually end up without duplicates on the google side.

However, I struggle to find the right solution for this (is it actually a good idea? - I don't know...). I tried an odata filter query on the get-contacts (outlook) and compare it to the get-contact from google, but it doesn't work at all. I'm struggling to think of a better solution..... I really just don't want duplicates in google...

 

Thanks a lot for your help 🙂

If this is a one off task, you'd be better to export the contacts from Outlook to a PST file. Then import the PST to Google?

Re: Get Contacts - Create contact

A colleague of mine has tried the export-import way with a cvs file. Unfortunately the contacts came out messy, Phone numbers in Notes-Fields etc.

 

Also, it will be done once for the individual user, but there is several hundreds of users - and honestly, I have no interest in manually ex- and importing lots of cvs', doing the manual corrections later... much rather set up a proper flow, connect to the user accounts and have it transfered.
