Common Case Studies
Salesforce is a really powerful platform, and there are endless ways to use the integration. Here are some examples of how you can get the most out of the integration, as well as some tips on how to get start.
CUSTOMER SATISFACTION REVIEWS ON SALESFORCE CASES
Salesforce offers a number of practical ways to manage cases and incidents directly from its interface. This example shows how you can activate an automatic trigger to send an opinion poll to a customer when their case is mark as closed, and then store that opinion directly in a related list in the contact or in the account.
- Create a custom survey response object in Salesforce and link it to your contact, account, or case objects. For more details, see “Best Practices for Managing Data in Salesforce” (EN).
- Configure “Trigger Email Survey Sending” based on your case object.
- In the “Trigger Email Survey Send” menu, be sure to select Contact > Contact Email from the email menu.
In Salesforce, be sure to set Case = Closed as a condition for your workflow rule.
When setting up your response schedule, select Insert > The name of your survey response custom object . Be sure to configure Qualtrics so that it can find out which records to link with your survey responses (EN) . You can do this by passing the IDs of all the linked records to the lookup fields of your custom object.
REVIEWS ABOUT RECENT PURCHASES OR OTHER CHANGES TO THE ACCOUNT
Salesforce is often use to monitor customer activities; when they make a purchase, renew a license or cancel an operation. These changes can be use to trigger an automatic opinion poll trigger.
- Create a custom survey response object and link it to your account object. For more details, see “Best Practices for Managing Data in Salesforce” (EN). Make sure the account object contains a valid email address of the contact you intend to send the survey to.
- Set “Trigger Email Survey Sending” based on your account object .
- In the “Trigger Email Survey Send” menu, select Account > Account Email from the email menu .
As part of the “Trigger Email Survey Sending” setup process, make sure your workflow rule includes a condition (buy, renew, or cancel) as part of its trigger.
When setting up your response schedule, select Insert > The name of your survey response custom object . Be sure to configure Qualtrics to link your survey response to the account. You can do the transfer account ID to the search field in your custom object survey.
DISTRIBUTE IN A SALESFORCE CAMPAIGN
Sometimes you may want to distribute to an entire list of users at once, rather than setting up a transactional distribution system. See the following information to make these types of distributions.
