    I have 1700 Contacts in the my Google contacts list. I am only interested in importing contacts in my "Customers Group" and my "Realtors Group". In this import process, is there a way to import only 1 group. Additionally, is there a way to have that group imported with a specific "Tag". Thank you for your consideration.
