The SFDC integration feature allows CX survey responses to be copied over to a Salesforce.com instance. Using OAuth, the user allows CX to securely communicate with their SFDC instance using an SFDC-supplied token.

Install the package

Once SFDC sync is turned on, a user can install a sandbox or production package (the former to test out syncing) at https://cx.surveymonkey.com/app/integrations/salesforce

Authenticate

Click "Connect" to initiate the OAuth process which will take you to your SFDC instance where you must login and allow access by CX.

Sync all surveys

After successful authentication, you are taken back to CX, and all surveys are then synced in the background.

Example reply page:

To include the CX reply info on a contact record, edit the contact page layout and drag SurveyMonkey CX Reply Contacts onto the layout. This can be found under Related Lists.

You can also edit the fields that are displayed within SurveyMonkey CX Reply Contacts to include fields such as "NPS," "NPS Reason," and "Sentiment." To edit the fields, click the wrench icon and add fields.

Sync schedule

Every midnight, we collect all new responses from the past 24 hours and sync those.

Typical causes of sync problems

  1. Custom required fields in Contacts and/or Leads tables
  2. Changing names of package components
  3. Updating to a new version of SFDC can change the URL. CX saves the previous URL to use for all sync calls.
  4. Using a version of SFDC that doesn't support APEX. Click for a list of versions that support our requirements.
