Are there any integrations around that allows you to add leads straight from gmail? or send invoices straight from invoice. 

i.e https://www.prosperworks.com

best regards

Hi Sebastian,

These are really two different questions. 

You can create leads from gmail. All you have to do is go to 'Settings | Technical | Mail | Incoming Mail Servers'. Then define a new server with name such as 'Leads from Gmail'. 

Server Name_ imap.gmail.com

Port =  993



Username: contact@mycompany.com

Password: *******

Create a New Record: Lead 

Then you just confirm and can check if it works.

In 'Settings | Technical | Scheduler | Scheduled Actions' the record with name 'Fetchmail Service' defines the frequency in which the incoming mails will be fetched.

Hi Jordi,

thanks for the response. I understand that currently you can fetch all emails and have them added as a lead.

My question was maybe not clear enough, i was intending to ask if there is a gmail odoo app that allows you to manually add a user as aan odoo contact and convert to opportunity/lead from within the gmail framework.

as example i gave prosperworks chrome extension.
