Last year, when Salesforce announced a strategic partnership with Google, two of the world’s most innovative enterprises joined hands. In a year, both the tech giants have developed that relationship and extended to help other businesses connect to their customers in innovative ways.
Among an extensive range of facets to the partnership, there are few notable integrations that a Salesforce user can do with his Google account in order to improve productivity and save time. Let’s have a sneak peek of some of the most common integrations.
Salesforce & Gmail
A Salesforce user can integrate their Salesforce account with Gmail. Known as Lightning for Gmail, an admin needs to enable the integration & users need to install a Chrome extension. Salesforce Gmail integration will result in higher Salesforce adoption as most of the users are familiar with Gmail.
Salesforce Contacts & Google Contacts
A Salesforce user can sync all his Salesforce Contacts & Google Contacts. This is a server-side integration & needs to be done by the admin. Salesforce Contacts with matching filter criteria can be synced with Google Contacts. This is called Salesforce Sync. Similarly, Google Contacts can also be synced with Salesforce Contacts.
Salesforce Events & Google Calendar
Same as Contact Sync, a Salesforce user can sync his Salesforce Events with Google Calendar. This is also a component of Lightning Sync. Admin needs to do a common configuration to integrate current & future Google Calendar meetings with Salesforce Events. When a Salesforce user links Google Calendar event to a Salesforce record, the event will appear in the Salesforce record’s Activity Lightning Page component.
Salesforce Data & Google Sheets
Salesforce users can now integrate their Salesforce data with Google sheets. Google sheet has Salesforce as one of the data sources now. By using any connector this can be performed. This integration will help Salesforce users apply additional analytics & fetch reports. Executive level presentations can embed Sheets visualization of Salesforce data in Google Slides.
Salesforce Files & Google Drive
Like data, Salesforce files can be integrated with Google Drive. This can be done using connectors. Salesforce offers limited storage and additional storage cost is expensive.
