Salesforce is a popular CRM that allows businesses to manage their sales, marketing, and customer support efforts in the cloud. You can connect your Salesforce and accounts so your records are updated in Salesforce instantly after every receptionist call.

With this integration, we will update your Salesforce account in the following ways:

Salesforce editions that work with the integration

Not all versions of Salesforce allow for API integrations. Make sure you have API integrations enabled in your Salesforce before requesting integration from Support.

  • Developer Edition
  • Performance Edition

Note: For Professional Edition subscribers, API access must be purchased a la carte for each API integration. These purchases must be processed through your Salesforce account executive and cannot be done on a self-serve basis, so first reach out to your account executive to enable API access before proceeding with the following steps.
