hello Joseph you would be clickfunnels

00:10

customer education team welcome back to

00:13

the setup for G suite and if you are

00:16

just seeing this video and you haven’t

00:18

already done so make sure to review our

00:20

previous article on how to actually

00:22

initially set up your new G suite

00:25

account to do this setup you will need a

00:27

couple of things first you will need a

00:29

domain registered in clickfunnels and

00:31

second you will actually need to have

00:33

done that first part of the setup so if

00:35

either of those are not done make sure

00:37

the check out the what you will need

00:39

section of this article so you can get

00:41

started from there let’s go ahead and

00:44

hop over to G suite now from there you

00:47

should end up at the same step and at

00:49

this point we’re going to click continue

00:51

to setup so this is gonna help guide us

00:54

through our G suite set up but rather

00:57

than would lie on this you’re going to

00:59

actually follow along with the video I

01:02

have for you here and if you follow

01:04

along with this video we’ll make sure

01:06

that everything gets set up exactly as

01:08

it needs to be just a reminder this will

01:10

ensure you can properly send and receive

01:13

emails from the domain you have

01:15

registered through clickfunnels now on

01:18

this page you will notice that it is

01:20

trying to draw your attention here to

01:22

add people to your G suite account we’re

01:25

not going to cover that in this video

01:26

simply because we want to get you up and

01:28

running as quickly as possible and we’re

01:31

also going to assume just for this

01:32

initial setup that you’re just setting

01:34

up one email if you do want to set up

01:37

additional accounts this will walk you

01:39

through that step by step if you click

01:41

start

01:41

so now though you’re gonna go down to

01:43

the bottom where it asking you no more

01:44

customized setup and you’re going to

01:47

click on the manual setup button

01:49

so from here requires knowledge of

01:52

managing don’t worry about all of this

01:54

it’s just giving you some additional

01:55

information and again I’m gonna walk you

01:57

through this here so let’s head over to

01:59

the admin console and once this loads

02:04

we’re going to start our setup so it’s

02:07

right here in the middle simply click

02:09

start setup and after we’ve clicked

02:11

start setup you’ll notice a verified

02:13

domain button pops in its place go ahead

02:15

and click

02:17

then we’re going to click get started so

02:21

we’re going to actually choose a

02:22

different method for this so ignore the

02:24

meta tag part under or click add a

02:28

domain host record so check I have

02:31

successfully logged in click I have

02:36

opened my control panel now it’s going

02:38

to give you a record you’ll notice the @

02:40

symbol for the name what this means on

02:43

our end is you do not need to put

02:45

anything in there but you will want to

02:48

make sure to copy this record now once

02:50

you’ve copied that record let’s hop over

02:53

to clickfunnels alright so back in

02:55

clickfunnels if you’re not you already

02:57

make sure to go up to your settings

02:59

click on the domains tab then go to the

03:02

domain you are going to be editing click

03:04

over on the three dots and click the

03:06

edit button now once this is loaded

03:10

let’s go ahead and expand to edit our

03:12

zone Records and scroll all the way down

03:14

where we’re going to enter our new

03:16

record then you would call it was a txt

03:19

record so go ahead and select that and

03:21

remember with the @ symbol you don’t

03:23

have to put anything in the name so I’ll

03:25

just paste the value I got from Google

03:28

and simply click Save once that’s done

03:31

we’ll go ahead and hop back over to

03:33

Google where we can see that change so

03:37

now that we’ve done that back in Google

03:38

we’ll click I have created the txt

03:40

record and I have saved the txt record

03:43

and we will click verify and now it will

03:47

just take some time for it to verify

03:49

that the record has been added and that

03:51

we do have access to the domain and

03:54

ownership over it at this point I’m

03:56

gonna pause the video and we will return

03:58

later to continue to setup alright

04:02

welcome back so on my end it did take a

04:04

little bit longer than an hour and I had

04:07

to actually leave the window and come

04:10

back a new end of may be the same so I’m

04:13

glad this happened so I get to go

04:14

through from this perspective so if you

04:17

did leave your page and come back you’ll

04:19

have to click to set up Gmail so go

04:22

ahead and do that after you log in and

04:24

if you didn’t you’ll pretty much be at

04:26

this step anyways it will tell you that

04:28

your verified and you’ll get

04:29

this next step and you’ll select to set

04:31

up your email this point say you’ve

04:35

logged in because you should still be

04:36

logged in on clickfunnels so you’ve

04:38

opened your control panel then you’re

04:40

going to get a list of domain records

04:42

now you notice the priority this is

04:45

something that at this time we are not

04:47

able to set within clickfunnels so this

04:50

part we will be leaving out but you’ll

04:52

notice that these records will still

04:54

work despite not having any priority set

04:57

so what we are going to have to do is

04:59

grab all of these records and put them

05:02

in clickfunnels you’ll notice again that

05:04

our alias hostname is actually an add

05:06

symbol which means for our purposes we

05:09

can leave those blank so I’m gonna just

05:11

grab this first one and we’re gonna hop

05:14

over to clickfunnels so in clickfunnels

05:16

I’m still on my domain I’m gonna go down

05:18

to edit my zone records I’m gonna go

05:21

down to type I’m gonna select MX again

05:24

leave the name blank and drop in that

05:26

first value and then hit save now we’re

05:29

gonna do the same thing for the other

05:31

four records I’m gonna show you this

05:33

next one with me actually going back to

05:36

Google just to go over this one more

05:38

time so let’s hop back over there and

05:40

again we’re just gonna select this

05:43

record copy it and then hop back over to

05:47

clickfunnels

05:48

and back in clickfunnels we’re going to

05:50

select MX can we can skip the name put

05:54

in that value and simply hit save I’m

05:58

gonna go ahead and copy the other three

06:00

records for your off-screen but remember

06:02

just follow that same process and then

06:04

we’ll proceed to the next step alright

06:07

so now that I’ve added that last record

06:09

let’s just expand these and double check

06:11

you can see our txt record here

06:15

initially and then all of our five MX

06:18

records added here in order so that’s

06:21

good to go let’s hop back over to Google

06:23

alright so from our admin console here

06:26

we’re gonna confirm we’ve created and

06:28

then we’re gonna confirm we have saved

06:31

and then we’re going to click verify now

06:33

for this I definitely don’t recommend

06:35

you waiting around and mainly that’s

06:38

because the way you didn’t add it with

06:40

priority the way our DNS records

06:42

it’s not going to show up in just an

06:45

hour at least in my experience it almost

06:48

never shows up that quickly it usually

06:50

takes a little bit longer so let’s hop

06:53

back over to our admin console you will

06:56

see that it is actually ready to go so

06:59

we can close this set up one thing I do

07:01

want to go over before we leave is

07:04

actually to check out our MX records and

07:07

if you click here which as your current

07:10

MX records it should load this page

07:14

momentarily and then you can see that it

07:18

does have those MX records added and

07:21

showing up so at this point you should

07:23

be able to send and receive emails from

07:25

your new email address and this way you

07:29

can use your domain registered and

07:31

clickfunnels to its full potential if

07:33

you have any questions as usual you can

07:35

always contact us by clicking the get

07:37

help button in the bottom right corner

07:39

of your screen until next time happy
