If the workflow of your organization involves using specific Custom Objects in Salesforce, you can set up custom objects in Mixmax to sync relevant activity to Salesforce.

Custom Objects in Salesforce

If you want to sync Mixmax activity to Salesforce custom objects, make sure you set up custom objects in Salesforce first.

Here is how Salesforce Administrators can set up custom objects in Salesforce:

When creating custom objects in Salesforce, also keep in mind the following:

  • To allow Mixmax to sync activity to your custom object, you must enable the Allow Activities optional feature on this object.

  • There should be at least one field that associates the custom object with your Mixmax email recipients. For more details, see adding fields to objects.

  • To allow syncing to Mixmax, a Custom Object must have at least one of the following fields:

    • Email

    • Lookup Relationship (Contact)

    • Lookup Relationship (Lead)

  • Permissions for Salesforce users should include viewing the custom object and creating, editing, and deleting the tasks users create.
