                              Push Data into Salesforce

                              Data collected in your surveys can provide powerful insights into your customers’ levels of satisfaction and engagement, as well as their likelihood of renewing or continuing their patronage. Keep your customer records fresh and relevant by pushing survey data directly into Salesforce.

                              This feature is available only in our Enterprise plan. Contact us to take advantage of this option.

                              Here’s how:

                              1. Create or select the survey you’ll use to collect feedback.
                              2. Within Design, click Instant Alerts in the Design menu bar.
                              3. Choose Rules & Alerts from the dropdown menu. On the page displayed, you can create, edit, view, delete, enable, or disable rules.
                              4. To create a rule, add the required details and identify the triggering events.
                                • Survey Response Received
                                • Conditional Alerts
                                • Frequency Based Alerts
                              5. Select workflow action: Push Data to Salesforce and continue.
                              6. Select from the following operation types:
                                • Insert
                                  Use this operation to create a Salesforce Object from a survey response, using attributes as mapped.
                                • Upsert
                                  • Use this operation to update an existing Salesforce Object based on a survey response. If the record does not exist, a new Object will be created.
                                  • To Upsert a Salesforce Object with a survey response, map the ID/Name/Email from Salesforce.com. You have two options:
                                    • Pull from a question answered by participants.
                                    • Pre-populate Salesforce ID/Name/Email into a survey question –manually, from a file, from a list, or through URL-Based Pre-Population.
                                • Update
                                  • Use this operation to update attributes of a Salesforce Object based on a survey response.

                              8. If you have a Record type created for your objects in your Salesforce account, it will be displayed in the drop down.
                              9. For a Lead, Lead Source is also displayed.
                              10. When an Update/Upsert operation is performed, the relevant criteria must be specified.
                                1. Choose the correct attribute of the object for which the criteria should be fulfilled.
                                2. Select the appropriate question to map with the object attribute.
                                3. As needed, add more than one set of criteria and rules.

                                You can set 5 criteria at a given time.

                              11. Map your survey questions with the object attributes.
                              12. Click Save to confirm your mapping.
