If you would first like to learn more about the Salesforce integration, see the article here.

If you have not yet set up your 'Add to Guest List' button on the Salesforce native integration, complete this first as shown in the article here.

Testing the Sync

You can test the sync by creating Events, Guest Lists, and Guests in Salesforce and use the manual sync to verify. Depending on the number of Events or Guests you add, the sync may take a few minutes.

Scheduling a Sync

By default, the zkipster app is set to sync daily at 1 AM your time. You can decide the frequency and time of the sync - the most frequent option is Daily. To schedule the sync process, follow the steps here:

  1. From Setup, enter 'Apex' in the Quick Find box, then select 'Apex Classes.'

  2. Click 'Schedule Apex'.

  3. For the job name, enter something like Daily zkipster Sync.

  4. Click the lookup button next to Apex class and enter β€˜ScheduleZkipsterSync’ for the search term to get the class to schedule zkipster-salesforce synchronization. In the search results, click the name of your scheduled class.

  5. Select Weekly or Monthly for the frequency and set the frequency desired.

  6. Select the start and end dates, and preferred start time.

  7. Click 'Save'.

Sync Configuration

In the zkipster Setup, under Sync Configuration, you can specify how historic you wish the sync to be by selecting how many months into the past you wish to sync to Salesforce.

  • Include past events up to (Number of Months): You can select how many months in the past will the sync cover. The minimum and default is 3 months

  • Delete unsynced past events from Salesforce: by selecting this any events past the selected month timeframe will be deleted from Salesforce. The default is unticked and this will simply leave the data as is if, outside the timeframe, it will not sync/update.

You are now ready to create Events, Guest Lists, and Guests. Learn how in this article.
