I nice addition would be to specify a group in Google when a contact is added to Google from SFDC.

For Example: I currently sync Google contact that belong to a specific Group named XYZ. But when I create a contact in SFDC and it get create in Google with the sync, that contact doesn’t belong to XYZ group. So if I go and modify that contact in Google, it does not get sync back to SFDC.

So, for every contact I create first in SFDC, I need to go manually add them to Group XYZ.
