I've been using Google Apps for my personal domain for some time, using it for email and the calendar. A couple of hours ago, I activated Google Contacts in the domain dashboard. It is now listed as activated for my domain.

If I try to log in on the URL given in the dashboar, https://www.google.com/contacts/a/mydomain.tld?hl=en, I see the following error:

Contacts has not been enabled by the administrator of the domain @mydomain.tld.

You can sign into another account to use Contacts.

If you are the Google Apps administrator, please read these articles to learn more about controlling user access to Google Apps services and turning services on/off for certain users.

I've tried to log in using an @gmail.com account at google.com/contacts and then changing account to my Google Apps account. This results in an infinite HTTP redirect cycle.

What could I have missed?

Turns out I just had to wait another few hours. 6 h after activating Contacts, it's working.


Go to your Control Panel-> Organization, Users tab -> Services -> find Contacts and enable it.

  • Are you asking how to do it or are you offering a solution?
