Use SOQL to Refine your Data Selection Criteria
Applies to: CloudExtend Excel for Salesforce

Watch Now

CloudExtend Excel for Salesforce users are familiar with selecting data to download with the data filter, i.e. load the template, edit the filter, add your criteria, and download. But, what if you have a large number of items to retrieve such as part numbers in a Price Book?

  1. Create your template and load it (this automatically creates the Select clause for your SOQL).
  2. Select ‘data filter’ and see your current SOQL statement at the bottom. The window is too small (sorry), so copy the SOQL to the editor of your choice (even Notepad will work).
  3. Add your ‘where’ clause and copy/paste the new SOQL statement from your editor into the SOQL window.
  4. Download your data in seconds.
Automatically Associate Emails Saved to a Contact with a Parent Record
Applies to: CloudExtend Outlook & Gmail

Watch Now

We often see users attaching emails to contacts and to customers. STOP! This duplicate effort is not necessary. With CloudExtend, when an email is attached to a contact record it is also rolled up to the parent record (customer, vendor, etc.). Once you understand this, you can save a lot of time. More importantly, you get much better visibility of what matters most. If you’re an Account Exec you can quickly see all the emails attached to a contact. This can help you (or others) prepare for that next call and understand where things were left off. At the parent level, you can also view that customer record and see all of the emails associated with all of the contacts in the company so you can get a holistic view at a glance.
