Shift currently supports the following email types to be added as accounts:

  • Gmail and G-suite (hosted by Google)
  • Outlook and Office 365 (hosted by Microsoft)

Microsoft Exchange accounts cannot be supported in Shift the same way the account types mentioned above are. Exchange-bsaed emails can be added using the Outlook Web App in the Apps directory.


Privately hosted email? We have a solution for that! Check how to add a POP email here or IMAP email here.

  2. Type in your email and select the email account type and customize the email icon color 
  3. Enter your password and accept the permissions after reading through them

Your account icon will appear in your sidebar and you will be able to access your new email account in Shift. When you add a new email to Shift, the email, calendar, and drive services will be added for each.
