Most Salesforce Admins do not believe when we say that managing documents in Salesforce can be easy and automated. We got them completely as we understand that Salesforce is a bit tricky when it comes to file management. Because the CRM platform comes with limited file storage space, the overgrowth of the files would fail the admins to operate the application effectively. 

Migrating files from Salesforce to an external storage is its only solution. If you’re already using SharePoint, the popular storage system, don’t look further than it as SharePoint provides a lot of advancements to store your Salesforce files externally. 

Before discussing those factors, let’s take a brief look at SharePoint. 

A Little Light on SharePoint

SharePoint is a proprietary, web-based collaborative platform that integrates natively with Microsoft 365. It’s one of the most popular document management and storage platforms today with over 100 million users worldwide. SharePoint has been making it easy for customers to set up a centralized, password-protected space for safe and secure document sharing, downloading, editing, and uploading.

Now, the point of discussion is on the integration of SharePoint and your Salesforce. As you already know, you need to partner with a solution provider for this. To make your life easier, we’d recommend you use XfilesPro, the #1 file management app for Salesforce. 

XfilesPro integrates Salesforce with your SharePoint without even the need for an additional connector. And post-integration, the application automatically migrates your files from Salesforce to SharePoint in pre-defined intervals and by following the hierarchy of the files. The best part is that apart from SharePoint, XfilesPro also supports other file storage platforms such as AWS S3, OneDrive, Google Drive, and on-premise platforms.
