Adding Saleswhale Custom Fields to Salesforce

Follow

In this guide, we will look at the Salesforce custom fields that need to be created before connecting your Salesforce to Saleswhale and best practices. To create these custom fields, make sure that your Salesforce account has the appropriate permissions.

These fields are used to sync the status of your Saleswhale conversations with your Salesforce instance, to make sure the latest Saleswhale status can be reflected in Salesforce.

You are now ready to connect your Salesforce instance to Saleswhale.

 

Best Practices

We recommend switching on the field history tracking feature in Salesforce for both the Lead and Contact objects to help ensure accountability for changes to the Saleswhale Status field.
