Integrate G Suite with Office 365

G Suite, now known as Google Workspace, is a collection of cloud-based productivity and collaboration tools developed by Google. It includes apps like Gmail, Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive, aimed at enhancing communication, creativity, and efficiency for businesses and individuals.

Office 365, now called Microsoft 365, is a subscription-based suite of productivity tools from Microsoft. It encompasses applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and more, along with cloud services, designed to empower efficient communication, collaboration, and work across various devices.

You can make G Suite and Office 365 integration to simplify your workflow and improve work efficiency. For example, you can store and share different file types like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on Google Drive. Therefore, you can access these files with ease. Or, you can edit your Office files in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides without conversion and use the special features there. Besides, you can also connect your Office files with Gmail like editing Word files in Doc and attaching them to an email directly.

It's important to note that the extent and ease of integration may vary depending on the specific tools and services used in your organization. Proper planning and the selection of appropriate integration solutions and third-party tools can help ensure successful integration between G Suite and Office 365. So, in the next parts, we will show you how to use MultCloud and Power Automate to integrate some of the G Suite and Office 365 services.

G Suite and Office 365 Integration via MultCloud [2 Ways]

You may make the G Suite Office 365 integration because you want to transfer files from Google Drive to OneDrive, sync SharePoint sheets with Google Shared Drive, or save Gmail emails to OneDrive. All these tasks can be achieved via MultCloud.

MultCloud aims to manage your multiple clouds on one platform and supports more than 30 kinds of cloud drives, including OneDrive, Google Drive, Google Shared Drive, SharePoint Online, Gmail, and Outlook. Due to the different needs, MultCloud offers different functions and features:

  • Cloud Sync: Automatically integrate 2 cloud drives with 7 sync modes, such as Incremental Sync, Real Time Sync, and Two-way Sync.
  • Email Migration: Migrate mass emails as PDF files from an email server to a cloud drive with or without attachments.
  • Schedule: Set the syncing process to run at your preferred time, supporting daily, weekly, and monthly sync.
  • Filter: Pick out the files or emails that you only want to transfer with files' extensions or emails' sender, recipient, and other elements.

Way 1: Sync OneDrive to Google Workspace in Real Time by Cloud Sync

Step 1: Search MultCloud in your preferred web browser and enter its official site. Then create an account by clicking “Get started for free” on the MultCloud home page.

Step 2: Click “Add Cloud” and then choose the Google Workspace and OneDrive icons to log in to the accounts.

Step 4: Click “Sync Now” and your files on OneDrive will be synced to Google Workspace soon.

Note: If you have masses of files to sync, you can purchase MultCloud’s paid plan, so that you can get more traffic for file syncing with faster speed and freely apply all the sync modes.

Way 2: Save Gmail to OneDrive as PDFs by Email Migration

Step 1: Add Gmail and OneDrive to MultCloud. To add Gmail, click "Add Email" > choose the Gmail icon > log in to your Gmail account.

G Suite and Office 365 Integration via Power Automate [Limited]

To make G Suite and Microsoft 365 integration, you can also use Power Automate. Microsoft Power Automate is used to create automated workflows and tasks across various apps and services. The defect of using Power Automate is that the templates on it are limited. Therefore, if you can’t find a proper template to use, you have to create one which is quite complex.

Since Power Automate does not offer a template that can perfectly match the G Suite and Office 365 integration requirements, this section will illustrate the steps for syncing OneDrive files to Google Drive by using it.

Step 1: Enter the Office 365 website and log in to your account.

Step 2: Click the button in the upper-left corner, select “All apps”, and tap Power Automate.

Step 3: Open “Templates” in the left bar, enter “Sync OneDrive Files to Google Drive Files” in the search box, and choose the template with the same title.

Microsoft Power Automate vs MultCloud Cloud Sync

Both of these 2 ways can achieve Office 365 G Suite integration, but here this post recommends MultCloud Cloud Sync more, and the reasons are shown below.

  • Cloud Sync supports Two-way Sync while Power Automate goes on the one-way trip.
  • Since Cloud Sync uses bandwidth to sync files, the speed will be faster and the process will be more stable. 
  • Cloud Sync has 10 sync modes to choose which makes it more flexible than Power Automate. For example, you can use Incremental Sync so that the task only syncs the added or modified files. 


Both MultCloud and Power Automate can make the G Suite and Office 365 integration and you can choose the one that suits you most. When you sync G Suite on MultCloud, you can try other functions like using Cloud Backup to back up Google Workspace to Wasabi. You won’t feel regret to start using MultCloud Cloud Backup, because it can restore the files that you backed up to other clouds and you can even choose a specific version to restore if you run the process for times.


How do I enable G Suite sync for Microsoft Outlook?
You can also use Email Migration to sync Outlook emails to G Suite. The steps are: Add Outlook and G Suite to MultCloud > Enter the Email Migration interface and set the task> Click "Migrate Now".
Why move from G Suite to Office 365?
Moving from G Suite to Office 365 can provide enhanced integration with Microsoft software, stronger collaboration tools, and advanced security features. Office 365 offers a seamless experience with widely used applications like Outlook, Word, and Excel, making it a popular choice for businesses seeking a comprehensive and familiar productivity suite.
