CiviCRM for Gmail allows you to manage your constituents and their details directly from Gmail. It’s like a Mini CRM in your inbox. It makes it effortless to save your constituent’s and their details into your CiviCRM without having to switch back and forth between your inbox and CRM.
CiviCRM for Gmail shows you a constituent profile immediately upon opening an email from the constituent. Instantly view or create constituent’s information or create activities without opening CiviCRM.
Once addon is installed and authorized, the addon requires configuring the CiviCRM REST connection settings.
1. REST Base URL
This is your Civi REST url for your install. The REST interface examples can also be found in the API Explorer as with the AJAX interface.
Example REST base url for a wordpress install: https://example.org/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/extern/rest.php
2. REST API KEY
The REST interface requires an api_key which is attached to the user that will be performing the action against the system, like contact create, activity create etc.
There must also be a user account in the relevant content management system for the user associated with the API Key. The main reason for this is that the REST interface unlike the AJAX interface is designed for being accessed from an external site.
Example of API key: 22e4fd8ca6cef0a83755d4e7e4f1dde6
3. SITE Key
In addition to api_key REST interface also requires a site_key which is the key stored in civicrm.settings.php
Example site key: ba452bdad32ae0597e7b372e3a33c69a
