Editing your Salesforce layouts

The next steps is to edit a few of the layouts used in Salesforce for use with the connector. 

Campaign Layout

First you will need to edit the Campaign page layout.

  • Access the Campaign PageLayout: at the left column of your Salesforce console by selecting Build > Customize > Campaigns > Page layout
  • First add a custom MailUp button to the page:
    • Click Edit and select the MailUp button (already available in your fields and buttons lists). 
    • Drag it to the custom buttons area in the Campaign Detail section
    • Save the layout changes by clicking on the Save button at the upper left corner.

  • Next, you will add some new fields to the Campaign page layout
  • To do so click again on Edit, and select Fields
  • Click on the Section button and drag it to the area you want the MailUp section to appear (normally below Campaign Details section)

    • Name the section MailUp
    • Select the 2-column option (the tab-key order option doesn't matter)
    • Click OK
  • Now that you have added a MailUp section to the page, add the following fields to it by dragging and dropping the corresponding buttons into that section
    • MailUp total views
    • MailUp total clicks

    • MailUp total unsubscription

Connecting Salesforce to your MailUp account

It's now time to connect your Salesforce organization to a List in your MailUp account.

  • Use the new Configuration tab to configure the MailUp for Salesforce connector
  • Add the following data to the form that will be displayed:
    • ConsoleID: this is your MailUp account ID, which is the numeric portion of your main user name. Let's say your user name is m12345: your MailUp console ID is 12345
    • MailUp Username: your main user name, with the letter "m" (e.g: m12345)
    • MailUp Password: the password associated with that user name
    • MailUp List ID: the ID of the List in your MailUp account that you wish to connect to. It's an integer and you can find it in your MailUp admin console next to the list name.
    • End point URL: the MailUp console URL (e.g.: http://b0x5a.s42.net). If you are unsure of what this URL looks like for your MailUp account:
      • Log into your MailUp admin console
      • Look at the URL in the browser address field
      • Copy the first portion of the URL, which should look like similar to this: http://b0x5a.s42.net
      • Note that we have removed everything after the domain (E.g. remove "/console/etc...")
    • Save the settings and click on Activate console

Warning

MailUp is a multi-list environment, but you can only associate with your Salesforce organization one MailUp account and one LIst within that account.

Any contacts or message that will be exported from Salesforce into your MailUp console will be available in the appropriate area of that List.

Schedule tasks

Your Salesforce organization is now connected to a List in your MailUp account.

You will notice that the page where you just confirmed your console association will now show a new section: Schedule task

This section si meant to allow you to schedule a synchronization of your campaign statistic. These statistics will be retrieved, once a day at the time you prefer, for a month after you sent your message. 

 

Let's associate your Salesforce contacts' and leads' fields with your Recipient fields included in MailUp, through the new tab Field Mapping.

Warning

Do not map the email address as this is already mapped by the code as the unique identifier of your contact!

You can start your first campaign now!
