Using the Salesforce integration

NOTE: This doc is designed to show you how to use the Salesforce integration with Receptive, assuming that you've already set it up. For instructions on how to set up the integration, head here.

Using the integration in Receptive 

1. Linking Salesforce contacts to requests in Receptive 

In Receptive, find the feature the prospect / lead has requested.

Under "Feature feedback", click the "Add Customer" button and start typing in the contact's name. Salesforce contacts will have the SF icon in front of their name so you can select the correct user and hit "enter" to add them to the feature.


2. Viewing which Salesforce contacts have voted for features in Receptive

To see the Salesforce contacts have voted for a feature in Receptive, just open the feature in Receptive and scroll to the "Salesforce" section:


3. Viewing Prospect's requests in Receptive reporting

You can segment out your prospect's requests in your Receptive reports to help you understand what your prospects have requested.

From your Reports page in Receptive, just scroll down to the "Account Status" filter and select "Prospect":


Using the integration in Salesforce 

1. Link a customer to an existing feature request

Go to the relevant user's page (contact page) in Salesforce. Scroll to the Receptive section and click the "Create / Link feature" button.

2. Create a new feature request
