Salesforce Integration

DailyStory + Salesforce

The DailyStory + Salesforce integration enables:

  • Leads in DailyStory that are marked as Marketing Qualified are automatically created as a new lead in Salesforce.
  • Salesforce Opportunities can be associated with a DailyStory campaign.
  • Track Salesforce Opportunity value back to your DailyStory campaign.

DailyStory does not currently enable bi-directional sync with Salesforce. DailyStory can publish leads to Salesforce and read opportunity details.

Configuring Salesforce Integration

There are several steps required to configure DailyStory and Salesforce integration. These steps are detailed below.

  1. Create a Salesforce App

Log in to your Salesforce account with administrative rights and go to the Salesforce Setup screen.

On the left menu, select Build > Create > Apps:

Apps Menu

Next, click New on the Connected App menu:

New Connected App
  1. Configure Salesforce App

Complete the form for the Connected App:

Basic Information

Enter the name DailyStory Connected App as the name of your application.

The API Name should be automatically set. If not, enter DailyStory_Connected_App as the API name.

Finally, set the contact email to your email address.

Basic Information

Optionally set other fields: * Logo image URL: * Icon URL: * Info URL: * Description: Used to connect DailyStory and Salesforce


Check Enable OAuth Settings, this will expand the list of available settings (see the screen shot below).

Set the Callback URL to the following value:

Next add all of the Available OAuth Scopes to the Selected OAuth Scopes. This ensures that DailyStory has the ability to create leads and read other data from Salesforce.

These authorization scopes ensure DailyStory has enough permission to perform existing actions as well as for planned integrations.

Next, check Include ID Token and check Include Standard ClaimsInclude Custom Attributes, and Include Custom Permissions.

API Information

Click the Save button. It can take 2-10 minutes for your application to get setup in Salesforce.

Click on Salesforce:

Salesforce Integration

From your DailyStory Connected App in Salesforce copy the values for Consumer Key and Consumer Secret into DailyStory and click Authorize.

You may be requested to sign in to Salesforce again

Advanced Configuration

Once Salesforce integration is enabled you will also be able to configure several advanced Salesforce integration options.

Extended Field Mappings

DailyStory will automatically populate common Salesforce fields that correspond to properties of a DailyStory lead, for example email address.

However, if you are using a custom form or setting extended lead properties, you may want to publish these into Salesforce as well. This is precisely what the Advanced Configuration option for Extended Field Mappings does.

For example, if you are capturing a values for CurrentSubscribers and you have a Salesforce custom field called NumberOfSubscribers__c you can configure DailyStory to populate that field in Salesforce when a lead is added from DailyStory.
