[Bulk Operations] Shared Contact Operation


Shared Contact Operation allow you to modify information for multiple shared contacts in one bulk job.  
Begin by clicking Add Bulk Operation.






Setup Shared Contact Operation

The first step is to give the operation a name and, optionally, a description. Select Shared Contact for the operation type.




Next, you will select your path if setting this up for the first time you will want to choose the "Guide Me" option. Which will walk you through selecting your columns and creating the sheet. If you already have a properly formatted sheet from a previous operation you may choose "Advanced". 





Next, click Select Columns from the menu on the right.



From the Available Columns list, select those columns you wish to have in the Google Sheet you will
use for the import.  Once you have selected the columns you wish to modify, click Add Selected.





The final setup screen will allow you to review your configuration choices.  If you would like to send email notifications 
on completion of the import, check the corresponding box to Send Email Notifications and enter the 
user(s) who will receive the notifications.


After review, click Submit to create the spreadsheet that will be used for the import.


Update the Spreadsheet

Once you have setup the import, it will appear in the list of Bulk Imports.  Select View Spreadsheet by selecting the import
and clicking the three vertical dots.


This will open the customized Google Sheet template in a new browser tab.  The Sheet will contain your domain's Shared Contacts and columns 
you selected during the setup step.

The first column, Id, is required for the import and cannot be edited.
  
Important! If the Id column is changed, the import will fail for all other changes to that group.




Important! To update addresses as formatted addresses, a format template can be used.  
The format to be used is below:

poBox::
streetAddress::
extendedAddress::
locality::
region::
postalCode::
country::

You can copy and paste the above format into the spreadsheet cell you wish to modify. Individual fields in the template can be
left blank if they are not needed. For example, to update a shared contact home address to be "123 Main St. New York, NY", paste
the following into the Home Address column:

poBox::
streetAddress::123 Main St.
extendedAddress::
locality::New York
region::NY
postalCode::
country::






Once you have made the desired changes to the user profiles in the spreadsheet, select Run Now by clicking the three vertical dots
for that import job.  



A review screen will appear listing the first five rows of the spreadsheet to be used for the import.  Click the Import Now button
at the bottom of the screen to begin the import.  The import will run and will make any necessary updates to the groups that
are listed in the spreadsheet.
