Expand the General Preferences section for the Side Panel and review the available settings. Note that some options are enabled by default. Select or deselect the checkboxes as needed to make changes.

  • Search only Salesforce ‘name’ fields: Select this option to only search name fields in Salesforce. Deselect this option to search all fields on searchable records. This setting is disabled by default.
  • Auto Select Attachments: Select this option to record attachments to Salesforce. Indicate which file types to exclude by entering file names or types in the field box. This setting is disabled by default.
  • Do not search for the following email addresses or domains: Select this option to specify email addresses or domains to exclude from the Side Panel. Enter into the text box with one item on each line. This setting is enabled by default with the user’s email address populated.
  • Allow me to edit subject/body when I record to salesforce: Select this option to allow email Subject and Body content to be changed when recording emails to Salesforce. This setting is disabled by default.
  • Show a reminder message when in Edit Mode: Select this option to show a message when composing an email reminding the user that emails will not be recorded to Salesforce until a sync occurs.
  • TimeScout Enabled: Select this option to turn on TimeScout, the LinkPoint360 meeting scheduling tool.
  • Tracker Enabled: Select this option to turn on Tracker, the LinkPoint360 email tracking tool.
  • Connections Enabled: Select this option to turn on Connections, the LinkPoint360 feature that displays contact and lead data found in email signatures that do not already exist in Salesforce.
  • Perform Salesforce discovery when this panel is closed: Select this option to force LinkPoint Blade to check Salesforce for updates to objects and fields. This will refresh SnapForms and SnapFields. This setting is disabled by default, but LinkPoint Blade will automatically check for changes once every 24 hours.

Tip: When working with attachments, users can list file extensions such as .png or .jpg to filter out images commonly found in email signatures. Users can filter out files with words such as brochure or pricing to exclude items commonly sent to people that do not need to be saved repeatedly in Salesforce.

Tip: The option to exclude based on email address(es) and domain(s) is especially useful for excluding the user or others in the organization from the Search Results.
