Salesforce integration with Cognism allows you to export contacts in bulk from Cognism Web Application into your Salesforce either as Leads or Contacts, with or without Accounts.
An admin user needs to first enable and setup the integration (configure Field Mappings) in the Cognism Web Application before other users in the organization are able to use the integration, after which all users can login and begin using the integration via the Web Application or Cognism Chrome Extension.
All integration settings for both the Web Application and Chrome Extension are located centrally and can be managed in the Web Application.
We do not integrate with the Salesforce Essentials package; you must be on Professional or above to be able to sync to Salesforce.
For Professional, you will need to contact your Account Manager and ask for API to be enabled.
