The OpenMoves for Salesforce articles provide help with sending and analyzing marketing automation campaigns using the OpenMoves for Salesforce connector. They will explain the content of the Marketing Automation screens in Salesforce and show you how to process your email campaign. Email campaigns are always created within OpenMoves, then synchronized to Salesforce before sending.
Throughout the life of the email campaign, further synchronization between OpenMoves and Salesforce will take place to ensure the response and statistical data collected by OpenMoves is available to be viewed in Salesforce.
This synchronization process takes place automatically at timed intervals pre-determined by the Email Campaign Manager but it is possible to manually synchronize on an ad-hoc basis. You may be working on an email campaign and wish to retrieve the latest statistics immediately without waiting for the next scheduled synchronization.
These articles assume that the OpenMoves for Salesforce installation articles have been followed to install, configure, grant user permissions and modify page layouts to the main Marketing Automation account.
A 'Frequently asked questions' article has been designed to help you with specific processes.
