Salesforce app

1. Open the app in the Salesforce dashboard

Click Scan to Salesforce in the Salesforce App Launcher.



2. Find your uploaded cards

In the Scan to Salesforce tab, you can confirm and edit your uploaded card data.
* You can sort cards by upload date and time.
** If available, use All users’ cards to see cards uploaded by other users in your org.


3. Transfer business cards to Leads or Contacts

Click Transfer to Leads to transfer data. If your admin allows it, you can change the transfer destination to Contacts by selecting Transfer to Contacts. If Scan to Salesforce can find identical Account data in your Salesforce org, scanned data will be automatically associated with it. If no match is possible or multiple matches are found, you can choose either to create a new Account or manually associate with an existing Account.


4. Check transferred card data

Open Leads from the App Launcher and confirm the transferred cards. 


5. Check activity report

After card data is transferred, check how many business cards were transferred. From the top right of the Salesforce app, click the Display Report button and see how many Leads and Contacts were created each month.

*Admins can also disable the report view mode, and the Display Report button will then not be shown.
