The SendGrid platform will improve your transactional email delivery and easily scale to meet your needs. The powerful cloud-based email infrastructure will have your transactional email up and running in minutes.

Below you'll find detailed information, specifically for SendGrid integrations:

Supported SendGrid Integrations

Authorizing SendGrid

To authorise, simply follow the steps as described below and make sure you meet the requirements to be able to sync. We need your API key.


PieSync will only add your contacts to the Global List in Sendgrid. 

If you already authorized SendGrid account(s) in the past or in any other PieSync integration, you'll be able to skip the first part of the authorization and choose from your CONNECTED ACCOUNTS.

[IF] Supported Conditions/Filters

  • ALREADY EXISTING IN APP YOU SYNC WITH 
  • FIELD VALUES (INCLUDING CUSTOM FIELDS)

[THEN] Supported Actions

  • UPDATING FIELD VALUES (INCLUDING CUSTOM FIELDS)

Default Field Mapping

Depending on the other app you're syncing with, you'll see a number of standard SendGrid fields being mapped by default. For instance, in a connection with Google Contacts, the default field mapping looks like this:

PieSync syncs the default name field(s) that come with the apps. Sometimes they have a different structure in both apps you connect. E.g. first and last names are separate in app A and joint in a single field in app B. In the background, PieSync joins first and last names together from app A to B and separates them again from app B to A. Our algorithm is smart about which part it updates in app B.

Customizable Field Mapping

You can custom map your SendGrid Custom Fields and any additional standard fields that aren't included in the default mapping yet. Bear in mind a mapping between two fields can only exist if the types of fields are compatible, and the particular compatibility will determine the direction of the mapping as well. More information on Customizable Field Mapping here.

Additional Options

Syncing Deletions

Currently, there are no SendGrid integrations on the PieSync platform that support our deletions sync.

Syncing Unsubscribes

Currently, there are no SendGrid integrations on the PieSync platform that support our unsubscribes sync.

The availability to Sync Unsubscribes/Deletions is app and connection dependent. If the box (screenshots above) is not there to tick, it's simply not possible. We need to be able to detect unsubscribes/deletions on one side and at the same time be able to create add the tag 'PieSync Unsubscribes' or ‘PieSync Trash’ on the other side. More Information on Syncing Unsubscribes here or on Deletions here.
