  5. Click on the Edit icon next to Auto Synch Details. The Upload Details window opens.
  6. Check the Enabled box.
  7. Update the “Email” field with the email address of the Client’s SFDC or Eloqua Admin. Multiple email addresses can be entered and separated by a semi-colon“;”. The email addresses can be updated at any time.
  8. Select:
    [x] Send Email on Success: This sends an email notification to the email addresses specified each time the auto synch executes successfully. Although it is not required that you/Client SFDC Admin receive this email on an on-going basis, it is a good idea to select this initially as you complete and test the SFDC integration. The notification can also be provided to your client as a verification of the initial data migration from SFDC.
    [x] Send Email on Failure: This sends an email notification to the email addresses specified each time the auto synch fails. Plain Language error messaging in the notification explains the cause of failure (i.e. inaccessible CRM fields, changes in CRM

  • External Call: Update Lead Error: (All)
  • External Call: Update Contact Error: (All)
