Why does Streak need permission to my Google accounts?
Streak needs access to your Google accounts for our various features and integration to work.
View and Manage your mail - Streak allows you to add your emails to what we call a Box- which is a container of information regarding a customer, a sales lead, a hiring candidate, or whatever you need it to be! We need access to these email thread IDs to bookmark your emails your Boxes so you can access your emails from your Box at a later date.
View your basic profile info - In a team environment, Streak allows users to be assigned particular duties. When a user is assigned to a Box or a Task, we pull and display that user's Gmail name and avatar so the team can quickly identify who is responsible for what at a glance.
Manage your Calendars- In addition to assigning team members to our Tasks feature, you can also assign a due date to these Tasks to sync to your Google Calendar for easy access!
View and manage the files in your Google Drive - Streak Boxes act as containers for all information regarding a particular customer, a sales lead, a hiring candidate... including important files. You can upload your customers contracts, or applicant's resumes to a Box from your desktop or your Google Drive account. In addition, you can import information into your Pipelines using CSV files which are also uploaded either via your desktop or your Google Drive account.
Manage your contacts- Streak also allows you to link your contacts in your Pipeline with your Google Contacts so you don't have to duplicate your information in two places! If you already have a list of customers added to your contacts, you can easily link them to your customer's Box in Streak using this feature.
