LinkPoint Connect offers users the flexibility to sync contacts based on a number of available criteria. Many organizations choose to further refine how Contacts sync between systems based on the Contact owner(s) in Salesforce.
Own: Sync only the Contacts that the current user owns in Salesforce plus any contacts assigned to their own private “ContactSync” campaign. LinkPoint Connect is configured this way by default (value: own)
Team: Sync only the Contacts that the current user owns in Salesforce plus any contacts assigned to their own private “ContactSync” campaign, plus all contacts of accounts that the user is a team member of (value: team).
Campaign: Sync any of the Contacts assigned to the user’s own private “ContactSync” campaign (value: campaign).
All: Sync all of the contacts in Salesforce (value: all).
In this section, you will learn how to configure LinkPoint Connect to sync Contacts based on those owned by the individual user, by teams, by Salesforce Campaigns, or en masse.
Tip: You can pick which Contacts to sync by assigning them to the ContactSync campaign. The campaign must be created once for each user and named ContactSync. After assigning selected contacts to the ContactSync campaign, you will need to change the value in the LinkPoint Connect configuration file to reflect desired option.
