Setup Your Gsuite Account to Connect With ClickFunnels

This article will teach you how to connect your Gsuite account with ClickFunnels. In doing so, you can send and receive emails from a custom email address using Gsuite and your new ClickFunnels domain.

Why you would need this

If you are using Gsuite to host your ClickFunnels domain's email, this will allow you to properly connect so you can manage, send, and receive emails using Gsuite.

What you will need

Step 1. Begin Your Manual Gsuite Setup

  • Continuing from Step One, click “Continue to Setup.”
  • Under Set up on your own, click “Next.”
  • Scroll down to where it says “Manual Setup” and click. 
  • Click “Go To Admin Console.” 
  • Once the next page loads, click “Start Setup.” 
  • Click “Verify Domain.” 
  • Click “Get Started” on the next page. 
  • Go to Choose a different method from the dropdown menu.
  • Select “Add a domain host record (TXT or CNAME).” 
  • Check off the box for “I have successfully logged in.” 
  • Check off the box for “I have opened the control panel for my domain.”
  • Under this next section, open a new tab and go to ClickFunnels.
  • From your Account Settings dropdown menu, select “Domains.”
  • Click the gear icon next to the domain you chose in Step One.
  • Under Edit Zone Records, click “Expand.” 
  • Scroll down to create a new record. 
  • Click the dropdown menu and select “TXT.” 
  • Under Name, put the @ symbol or leave the field blank.
  • Under Value, paste the Value from your Gsuite account. 
  • Click “Save.” 
  • Back in Gsuite, check “I have created the TXT record.”
  • Check “I have saved the TXT record.” 
  • Click “Verify.”

Note: as it can take an hour or so to verify, we recommend closing out this window and returning after an hour to continue with setup in Step 2.

Step 2. Setup Accounts for Your Team

  • Log back into your Gsuite account. 
  • Click “Setup Gmail.”
  • On the next step, click “Setup Email.”
  • Check off the box for “I have successfully logged in.” 
  • Check off the box for “I have opened the control panel for my domain.”
  • Return to your Zone Editor in ClickFunnels.
  • Next to Edit Zone Records, click “Expand.” 
  • Scroll down and select “MX” from the Type dropdown.
  • Leave the Name blank.
  • Copy the first Value record from Gsuite and paste in ClickFunnels under Value.
  • Click “Save.” 
  • Continue to copy and paste the proceeding records from Gsuite in this fashion (see image below for visual).
  • Back in Gsuite, check “I have created MX records with these values.”
  • Check “I have saved the MX records.” 
  • Click “Verify.”

Note: your setup is now complete and you can test by sending or receiving emails. Since you are unable to set priorities in ClickFunnels, it may take longer than usual to confirm. The best way to test is to send and receive an email in your newly set up email account. If in doubt, you can check your MX records in Step 3.

Step 3. Verify Your MX Records in Gsuite

  • From within your Gsuite Admin Console, search “MX Records” in the top search.
  • Select “Your current MX records” from the dropdown autocomplete options.
  • You can view your MX records from this page.
