Exporting as Lead vs. Contact+Account

In the Cognism Web Application and Cognism Chrome Extension, the Salesforce integration settings allows you to select whether export or sync results in either Leads or Contact+Account records being created in Salesforce.  

Export & Sync deduplication explained

Given that Salesforce has an advanced deduplication capability, during export from Campaigns, List or the Cognism Chrome Extension, the following is checked to identify if a corresponding record already exists in Salesforce: 

  • Leads will be matched by the email address, or First Name + Last Name + City. 
  • Contacts will be matched by the email address, or First Name + Last Name + Company. 
  • Companies will be matched by domain (or check that the domain is part of their website), or Company Name + City, or Company Name. 

If an existing record is identified, export will continue and make updates on existing Salesforce records based on your Update Rule settings available in integration settings.  

If an existing record has not been identified, but your Salesforce duplication rules identifies that there is an existing record already in Salesforce, the export will continue and make updates on existing Salesforce records based on your Update Rule settings available in integration settings. 

Exporting from Lists
