Once you have connected your Google or Microsoft Outlook calendar to GReminders, you are ready to sync our system with Salesforce.
From the GReminders Main menu on the left-hand side of the screen, go to Integrations > Salesforce
Once you have connected GReminders to Salesforce, you will be presented with the following options:
Phone Number Matching Options
When you select “Pull Mobile Number from Leads…”, and/or “Pull Mobile Number from Contacts…”, scheduling a meeting on your Google or Outlook calendar (with a lead/contact in Salesforce) will sync the individual’s information with GReminders (see below):
You are then able to send SMS Reminders, Email Reminders or Phone Call Reminders to your Salesforce Contacts.
When you select “Log Activity against the matching Contact…” Your reminder messages will be logged in Salesforce (see below):
Lead Creation when using Automated Scheduling
Select “Automatically create Lead IF Contact does not exist” to create a new lead in Salesforce when an individual books with you using GReminders’ automated scheduling.
Automatically Create Event Record
Select the option “Create an Event in Salesforce When New Meeting is Booked” to sync new events created using GReminders automated scheduling. In addition, if you have previously selected “Log Activity against the matching Contact or Lead” then you will see reminders sent out to attendees of this event.
When utilizing automated online scheduling, you can create custom questions for clients to answer during scheduling and then and map the answers to specific fields in your Salesforce events, contacts, leads or tasks. There is a complete article on how to setup and map custom questions, here.
