RollWorks Reports in Salesforce

The RollWorks Integration with Salesforce enables you to view advertising performance and influenced revenue both in the RollWorks platform and directly in Salesforce. You can report on opportunities influenced, influenced pipeline revenue, influenced closed won opportunities, and influenced closed-won revenue.

After completing the initial Salesforce Integration setup you will be able to use this Salesforce data directly in RollWorks, however, if you are planning to view and use RollWorks data directly in Salesforce you must continue reading and complete the instructions in this article to enable and share reports.

At a high level your Salesforce reports can include the following RollWorks data: 

RollWorks data in Salesforce can be leveraged in the following ways:

      • Seeing RollWorks data directly in your Account, Contact, and Lead records.
      • Using the 4 out-of-the-box RollWorks Custom reports available.
      • Customize the existing out-of-the-box report templates to meet your needs.
      • Build your own reports from scratch.

 

Read before you start

Before you start we strongly suggest that you complete the following steps to get the most out of using RollWorks data directly in Salesforce:

Step Description Why is this important?
Step 1

Confirm the default 30-day 'Tracking Data Timeframe' works for your reporting needs. Continue to the next section in this article to learn more.

RollWorks advertising data is summarized in your Salesforce fields for the time period selected in your 'Tracking Data Timeframe'. It is important that you know what is the period of time used to display your advertising metrics.
Step 2

Work with your Salesforce Administrator to add RollWorks custom objects and fields to your Page Layouts as related lists.

Jump to the section in this article to learn how.

This step is required if you want to view RollWorks data fields directly in your Salesforce records when looking at a specific Account, Contact, or Lead. 
Step 3

Work with your Salesforce Administrator to add the permission set called 'RollWorks Marketer' or 'RollWorks Admin' to all your Salesforce users that need to view RollWorks data or reports in Salesforce.

This step is required to ensure that all the team members that need access to view RollWorks fields, reports, and dashboards in Salesforce have the appropriate permissions.
Step 4

Work with your Salesforce Administrator to share the report folder called 'RollWorks Custom Reports' with all the Salesforce users that need access.

Jump to this section in this guide to learn how.

This step is required to ensure that all the team members that need access to view RollWorks out-of-the-box report templates can access them.

 

Confirm the Tracking Data Timeframe

The 'Tracking Data Timeframe' is the lookback window in which RollWorks Advertising data is aggregated and displayed in Salesforce for your Accounts, Contacts, and Leads.

For example, if your Tracking Data Timeframe is set to 30 days, 'RollWorks Clicks' shown in Salesforce will be the total clicks for a rolling 30-day lookback window. However, if you change the Tracking Data Frame to 7 days, 'RollWorks Clicks' shown in Salesforce will be lower, accounting for the total clicks for a rolling 7-day lookback window. 

The default Tracking Data Timeframe lookback window is set to 30 days. It is important that you understand this and change it if this does not work for your reporting needs.

To change the Tracking Data Timeframe you will need to work with our Salesforce Administrator to follow the instructions below:

  • Log in to Salesforce and Navigate to 'Setup'> 'Custom Code' > 'Custom Setting'
  • Click 'Manage' next to the 'RollWorks Acct Based Marketing Settings' custom setting

  • Click 'Edit'
  • Set 'Tracking Data Timeframe (days)' to your preferred lookback window
  • Click 'Save'

Edit your Salesforce Page Layouts

After completing the initial Salesforce Integration setup, RollWorks will automatically create custom objects in your Salesforce Org that will be used to export RollWorks account and contact data.

🚨  If you want to see RollWorks data directly when looking at a Salesforce Account, Contact, or Lead record, your Salesforce Administrator must manually add the RollWorks custom objects and fields to your Salesforce Page Layouts as custom-related lists.

🚨  Before you or your team members can view and access these RollWorks reports in Salesforce, the folder called ‘RollWorks Custom Reports’ must first be shared with you and your team by your Salesforce Admin.

Troubleshooting

I cannot see the out of the box ‘RollWorks Custom Reports’

If you are unable to see the out-of-the-box RollWorks reports in Salesforce or you are unable to create new reports using Salesforce data, your Salesforce Administrator may need to change your user permissions in Salesforce. Contact your Salesforce Administrator to ensure the following:

  1. Your Salesforce user has the 'RollWorks Marketer' or ‘RollWorks Admin’ permissions assigned.
  2. The folder 'RollWorks Custom Reports' is shared with you and your team in Salesforce.

 

I cannot see data in RollWorks Custom Reports

If you are able to see RollWorks Custom Reports, but the data is blank contact your Salesforce Administrator to ensure the following:

  1. Your Salesforce user has the 'RollWorks Marketer' or ‘RollWorks Admin’ permissions assigned.
  2. The Salesforce Administrator who originally authenticated the App, is n active Salesforce user, with the permission set 'RollWorks Admin'.

 

Why is there a discrepancy between advertising metrics in RollWorks and Salesforce? 

The advertising metrics you can see in the RollWorks platform and directly in Salesforce may slightly differ due to how often data is pushed to Salesforce compared to the relative real-time calculation in Rollworks.  For this reason, you can expect to see a discrepancy lower than 10% for advertising metrics.
