Part 4 - Configure the Salesforce Skill

To be able to work with the Ciara x Salesforce integration, you need to configure it first. The configuration consists of two steps. To start with it, access the Salesforce skill settings by going back to the integrations area in your Ciara settings. In the CRM section, there is now a Salesforce-box.

To finish the set-up of the salesforce skill, click on the blue "Connect" button. 

If you want to be able to update Salesforce fields within Ciara, you have to activate the relevant fields first. To do so, in the Salesforce box in your integration settings, click on the blue "Manage" button.

How to use the Ciara x Salesforce integration.

The Ciara x Salesforce integration allows you to auto-log your calls and notes from Ciara in Salesforce and update your Salesforce fields directly in Ciara. To do so, you need to start your calls with Ciara from within Salesforce.

Go to your Salesforce Contact/Lead/Opportunity/Account (depending for which object you installed the integration) and select a record in detail view.

Click on the "Start Ciara" button.

You will now be forwarded to Ciara. All notes or highlights you take in this call as well as your meeting summary will now be auto-synced to Salesforce. You can also now access the activated Salesforce fields via the Search bar by clicking on the orange 🔍-icon in the bottom right corner or pressing "/".
