Understanding LinkPoint Connect Sync Functionality (IBM Notes + Salesforce)

LinkPoint Connect is designed to simplify the process of synchronizing your calendar, contact, and task data between IBM Notes and Salesforce. Users can seamlessly connect existing accounts without the need to manually input sales leads and client information into two separate destinations.

LinkPoint Connect synchronizes calendars, contacts, and tasks between IBM Notes and Salesforce using two sync types: Manual and Auto. Organizations or users can decide how they would like to manage their sync settings based on how they use IBM Notes and Salesforce throughout the day.

Users can configure LinkPoint Connect to synchronize accounts automatically using custom settings or manually synchronize each account for more control. Users can also use the tool to coordinate lead and client record keeping in Salesforce with IBM Notes-based lead and client communication.

Sync Types

Manual Sync

Users must take action each time they would like to synchronize calendars, contacts, or tasks using Manual Sync. As part of the process, users are prompted to confirm the settings and selections for each sync type. Users can run the Manual Sync as often as needed in the background. LinkPoint360 recommends that first time product users run a manual sync before running an auto sync to avoid duplication issues.

Auto Sync

Users can set up their preferred synchronization options within LinkPoint Assist to use the Auto Sync feature. The configuration to automate when and how calendar, contact, and task items move between systems. These settings are highly configurable on a per user basis or can be configured the same way for an entire organization by the LinkPoint360 Professional Services Team.
