Create New Account Records in Salesforce

This feature allows you to push accounts filtered from the RollWorks Command Center or from Trending Accounts that you have identified as being a high fit and/or surging with intent, and are not yet present in your CRM.

Your selected accounts will be pushed to Salesforce, and a brand new account record will be created for each. We will create Standard Account Object records only.

Your selected accounts will be pushed to Salesforce, and a brand new account record will be created for each. We will create Standard Account Object records only. 

 

Account Field Mapping

RollWorks will enrich the newly created account records with firmographic data using the field mapping below:

RollWorks Field Salesforce Field
RollWorks sourced = True RollWorks sourced = True
Company Name Name
Domain Company Domain Name
Company Size Number of Employees
Company Revenue Annual Revenue
Country Country

Any account records created by RollWorks will be flagged using the custom field RollWorks sourced = true. Your CRM admin can use use this field to create logic to assign the newly created account records to your Sales team.

 

Account Owner in Salesforce

The Account Owner for the newly created Standard Account record will be the unassigned alias you defined in your Salesforce instance. Click here to learn how to find your unassigned alias in Salesforce. 

 

Troubleshooting

Some fields are not being synced to Salesforce

Sometimes, Salesforce administrators will customize the instance or layout such that fields RollWorks writes data to are hidden, deleted, or read-only.  In these instances, RollWorks will still proceed with creating the Account record, but may not be able to write some of the enriched firmographic data if your Salesforce fields are hidden, deleted, or read-only.

 

Account records are not being created in Salesforce

RollWorks may not be able to create an Account record in your Salesforce instance in the following situations:

  • Your Salesforce admin has implemented validation rules that required certain fields populated when an Account record is created, and RollWorks is not populating the required fields.
  • The user who authorized the Salesforce<>RollWorks integration does not have the proper permissions to create Account records. Learn more here.
  • The Salesforce<>RollWorks integration was disconnected or needs to be reauthorized. Learn more here.
  • The Website field on your Account object has been hidden, deleted, or RollWorks only has read-only access.

How many new Account records can I push to Salesforce?

There is no limit to the number of account records that you can create, however, you can only push accounts that appear in the "Accounts Not In Salesforce" insights card.

 

How long does it take to create a new Account record in Salesforce?

The new account records will be available in Salesforce in approximately 20 minutes. If there is an error creating the account records, then the process could take up to 24 hours.
