To Configure RG Email Sidebar Dashboards in Salesforce

The prerequisite for configuring RG Email Sidebar Dashboards for a Salesforce user account is to install Revenue Grid managed package for the Salesforce Org. Follow the instructions in this article to configure the prerequisites.

After My Domain was configured and RG managed package was set up, proceed to Salesforce configuration steps below.

 

Tip

Please perform the following steps most accurately, since a mistake here is likely to result in misconfiguration errors

 

1. Set up tenant URLs

For setting up tenant URLs, the Salesforce Admin needs RevenueGridTenantUrl and ServerSyncTenantUrl. To generate RevenueGridTenantUrl and ServerSyncTenantUrl required for RG Managed Package configuration, you can either contact our Support team or follow the instructions provided in the section below.
 

How to generate tenant URLs
  • Open RG Email Sidebar, click the Menu button, go to Sync settings

  • Next, the Revenue Grid Sync Settings page will open. Find the address bar at the top of the page

 

  • In the address bar, you’ll see the address of the page. Select the address starting with http and ending with .com/. Ignore everything after .com/

 

The selected address is your ServerSyncTenantUrl.

  • To generate RevenueGridTenantUrl remove the “-sync”-part from the address and the slash ( / ) after .com

In the very end, you should get the URLs that follow this pattern:

  • RevenueGridTenantUrl
    https://[ your tenant ].revenuegrid.com

  • ServerSyncTenantUrl
    https://[ your tenant ]-sync.revenuegrid.com/

Important

Make sure there is a slash / character at the end of the ServerSyncTenantUrl value and there is no slash / character at the end of the RevenueGridTenantUrl value. Otherwise, the users won’t get Revenue Grid Widget content with no issue cause indication

 

How to set up tenant URLs
  • Switch to Lightning Experience as described in this Salesforce article
  • Open Salesforce Setup settings
  • In the Quick Search field type “Custom Settings”
  • Click Manage button next to the CanvasAppSettings label; press Ctrl+F to find it quickly if the list is big

 

  • Find the settings RevenueGridTenantUrl and ServerSyncTenantUrl, then click Edit to modify them:

 

  • Update RevenueGridTenantUrl with a specific RG tenant URL

  • Update ServerSyncTenantUrl with a specific RG tenant URL

Important

Make sure there is a slash / character at the end of the ServerSyncTenantUrl value and there is no slash / character at the end of the RevenueGridTenantUrl value. Otherwise, the users won’t get Revenue Grid Widget content with no issue cause indication

 


 

2. Set up user authorization

  • Switch to Lightning Experience as described in this Salesforce article
  • Click the Gear (Setup Menu) icon in the upper right-hand corner of the page to open Salesforce Setup menu
  • In Quick Search type “App Manager”
  • Click Manage next to InvisibleSuite App that has a Type Connected (Managed)


 

Tip

In case you cannot find the needed item InvisibleSuite - Connected (Managed) on the list, sort the list by Developer Name and look for Revenue Grid for Salesforce

 

  • On the next page, click Edit Policies
  • Set the value Admin approved users are pre-authorized in the picklist Permitted Users

 

  • Click Save to apply configuration updates

 


 

How to Configure Contact, Lead, or Opportunity Widgets for a Salesforce Admin User Account

 

If you configure the widgets for a regular Salesforce user account, the steps provided in this article are sufficient; however, for a Salesforce Admin user extra configuration steps are required to setup the widgets for other users in their org.

Note

The same procedure is used for Contact, Lead, or Opportunity records’ layout adding in Salesforce user interface. The steps are identical
