Migrated Google Contact Groups to OneDrive/Office 365

How are Google contact groups migrated?​

Answer:

Suppose you have a single contact in G Suite who was a classmate and is also part of your racing team.

In G Suite you could create two groups:

  • Classmates
  • Racing team

When you click on a G Suite group, the same contact record is displayed. If you make a change to the contact under one group, changes are visible when you click on the other group.

Exchange works differently. We map G Suite contact groups to Exchange folders.

As a result, with Exchange, suppose that there are two contact folders called "/Classmates" and "/Racing team". There is no way to place the same contact record under both folders. Changes made to the contact under one folder are not visible when you click on the other folder because the two records are different.
