The differences between ACT! and Salesforce.............

Account Assignment

Act! is Contact-centric.  While ACT! does provide the ability to associate contacts with companies, most users do not do this. In Salesforce.com, Contacts are required to be link to an Account.   then the record owner is the only user that has access to the contact.  Therefore, when the import files are prepared, each contact is assigned an account using the following rules.

  • If a contact belongs to an ACT! company, the account information for that contact will be taken from the ACT! company data.

  • If a contact does not belong to an ACT! company and the company name is present in the contact’s record, then this company name will be used to create the Salesforce.com account.

  • If a contact does not belong to an ACT! company and does not have a company in the record, the contact will be assigned to a Salesforce.com account ACT! Blank Company - Reassign

Blank Contacts

If the Contact name is blank and there is a Company name, then the contact will be named Contact at companyname.

Account Addresses

ACT! companies can have three address fields.  Salesforce.com only has two.  When ACT! company data is used to populate the Salesforce.com Account addresses the following rules are used:

  • If the ACT! company billing address field is blank, the ACT! address is moved to the Salesforce.com billing address.

  • If both the ACT! company and billing addresses contain data, the ACT! company address is put into a field which will need to be created labeled, ACT_Company_Address.

Groups

There are no groups in Salesforce.com.  However, they can be simulated using Salesforce.com views.  Exporter provides a field labeled GroupMembership which contains a list of all the groups the contact belongs to.  This field can be used to set up Views in Salesforce.com.  You can find instructions on setting up Views in the Resources section of this web site.
