Customers using Salesforce and BestNotes can request the ability to import into BestNotes from Salesforce. This integration allows you to use an export file from Salesforce to import your clients. The Salesforce Export Example is a guide that outlines the information that is available to be pulled into BestNotes. The only column required is the "Unique Import ID", but these columns are the only items that can be imported.

Preparation for Salesforce Import

  1. Request Salesforce integration from BestNotes
  2. Request the custom report from Salesforce
  3. When saving the Salesforce Custom report, be sure to save it as a .csv file
  4. You will receive notification from BestNotes that Salesforce has been setup
  5. Send a list of users that will need access to "Salesforce" within BestNotes
  6. Create a "Fixed Tag" named "SF" within BestNotes
