Special Admin Panel Settings



To use Revenue Inbox Admin panel, special access permissions are required. To request the permissions for your organization, contact Revenue Grid support team by email. Please note that Admin panel access is only granted to Enterprise customers: the Panel provides tools for managing a big number of end users and some of its key settings it includes duplicate Revenue Inbox Customization and Sync settings on Admin level


Admin panel provides a number of settings used to adjust different aspects of Revenue Inbox synchronization, search, and customization functions for organizations as well as individual Add-In / Chrome Extension users. Some of them duplicate settings available on end users’ Customization page and Synchronization dashboard, but are applied to all users in an organization and cannot be changed by the end users (these settings are greyed-out for them); others are designed to tailor Add-In / Chrome Extension and sync behavior to various specific needs or manage users’ access to customization settings. Finally, there are several configuration field settings required for enabling some of advanced Revenue Inbox features. These features also require creation of custom record fields in Salesforce, which can also be created automatically by installing the Revenue Inbox package.

For convenience of use, several commonly used special settings are implemented on the Other settings tab of all user organizations as switch buttons and entry boxes.



An Admin can force certain settings, overriding them on a user’s Synchronization or Customization page (admin overridden settings will be displayed as greyed-out), or allow users to adjust these settings individually



Most Revenue Inbox implementations include only the Allow customization management setting, the rest customization and configuration settings being managed by Revenue Grid support team


Allow customization management

Toggle this switch button to allow or disallow the end users in this organization to manage their individual customization settings via Customization page.
Please note that to apply this setting the concerned user(s) must log out from their Revenue Inbox account and then re-log in.


The Allow to manage customization setting can also be applied to individual users via the Other settings Admin panel subtab opened for individual users instead of organizations




Emails auto-sync

Allows to enable/disable automatic sharing of new email messages in Salesforce. Duplicates the corresponding synchronization setting.


Meetings auto-sync

Allows to enable/disable automatic sharing of new created or accepted meetings in Salesforce. Duplicates the corresponding synchronization setting.


Appointments auto-sync

Allows to enable/disable automatic sharing of new created appointments in Salesforce. Duplicates the corresponding synchronization setting.


Linking to Opportunities

Allows to enable/disable records linking to Opportunity Salesforce objects besides Contacts, Accounts, or Leads. Duplicates the corresponding synchronization setting.


Organization email domains

Specify corporate email domains used by your organization. This defines what email addresses will be considered internal; refer to this article for more information.
Please note that to apply this setting the concerned user(s) must log out from their Revenue Inbox account and then re-log in.


Email attachment extensions allow-list

Specify what email attachment file types will be savable in Salesforce on email/event auto-sharing. If left void, files with any extensions will be saved. This setting doesn’t affect attachment files saved manually. Please note that to apply this setting the concerned user(s) must log out from their Revenue Inbox account and then re-log in.


Reduce tasks duplicates

Enables/disables preventing multiple Salesforce objects creation for the same email message received and shared by several users in one Salesforce Org. Please refer to this article for more information. Please note that to apply this setting the concerned user(s) must log out from their Revenue Inbox account and then re-log in.

Original email ID field This field is mandatory if the Reduce tasks duplicates setting is enabled. Here, set the name of the custom field containing the original email message’s ID in MS Exchange in Salesforce Activities (Tasks or EmailMessages) based on the email. If in your Org emails are saved as EmailMessage objects rather than Tasks the MessageIdentifier field should be used; if emails are saved as Tasks and you installed Revenue Inbox in your Org the InternetMessageID field should be used. In case you do not have Revenue Inbox installed in your Org and do not use Salesforce Enhanced Email you must create this custom field for the Task object in Salesforce. Please refer to this Salesforce Help article to learn how to do that.


Email direction field

Set the custom name of the field that indicates email direction ( inbound / outbound) in Salesforce, e.g. “Message direction”. This field will be added in Salesforce.

Label for inbound emails Set the label that will indicate if a message is inbound (to be displayed in the Email direction field).

Label for outbound emails Set the label that will indicate if a message is outbound (to be displayed in the Email direction field).


Email threads auto-sync

Enable/disable automatic saving of all emails which belong to a correspondence thread in Salesforce. Duplicates the corresponding synchronization setting.
Please note that to apply this setting the concerned user(s) must log out from their Revenue Inbox account and then re-log in.

Thread ID field

This field is mandatory if the Email threads auto-sync setting is enabled. In it, set the custom name of the field that indicates the auto-shared thread’s ID (mandatory if the Email threads auto-sync setting is enabled) in Salesforce. Similarly to the Original Email ID field, this field can be set up as part of the Revenue Inbox Salesforce package - then it will be labeled ConversationId or created manually in Salesforce.


Default users Plan

Plans allow enabling customized sets of specific settings for selected users and groups of users. Enter the Plan’s external ID string in this field. Please refer to this article for more information.


Emails / domains blocklisted from sync

Specify email addresses or domains to be excluded from sharing in Salesforce, e.g. personal contacts or in-organization ones. Note that the list does not support using wildcards. This list complements the corresponding customization setting - for every user both this corporate blocklist and one’s individually managed blocklist will be applied.

Please note that to apply this setting the concerned user(s) must log out from their Revenue Inbox account and then re-log in.


After you make changes in the settings, make sure to click the Save button in the upper right corner of the page to save and apply them



Some Revenue Inbox configurations also include the Global settings tab with the table of other special settings implemented as fields and values



Extra Configuration Settings

Unlike the above described Special settings, Revenue Inbox Global settings are normally not available to local admins and can only be adjusted on request sent to Revenue Inbox Support; please describe in detail your specific preferences and use cases in the request. These settings regulate various aspects of Add-In / Chrome Extension and synchronization functioning and are applied as custom features to meet specific customer needs. Contact us to get the full list of global Revenue Inbox settings.

Finally, besides regular sync adjustments, Revenue Inbox offers special synchronization settings to meet your company’s specific preferences - syncing calendar items as other object types besides events and one-way synchronization options.


Auto-sync Outbound (Sent) or Inbound (Inbox) emails only

There is a sync pattern adjustment setting available for big Enterprise RI customers that allows to limit emails auto-syncing scope to Outbound (Sent) or Inbound (Inbox) messages only.


Linking email attachments to Salesforce Business records besides the Task/Email message object

This special feature that can be enabled on request sent at Revenue Grid support Team allows linking of email attachments to other objects besides Salesforce Tasks or Email messages, via the Related To field.


Auto-create objects for unresolved meeting participants (auto-resolving)

When emails or calendar items received from or sent to unresolved (previously not registered in Salesforce) email addresses are saved in Salesforce by assigning them the Salesforce category or moving them to the Salesforce emails folder, Revenue Inbox can automatically create corresponding objects in Salesforce to link the matching Tasks/Email messages or Calendar Events to. Object types which can be created in these cases: Leads or Contacts. To request this feature for your Org, send a detailed request to Revenue Grid support team, describing your preferences.


SalesforceContactAutoCreateAccount: Revenue Inbox will auto-create corresponding Accounts on sharing a Contact from a previously not registered company; enabled by default.


SalesforceContactAutoLookupAccount: relevant Accounts are automatically retrieved to be linked to auto-created Contacts; enabled by default.


CalendarAvailabilityTerm: sets the time span in the future for which a user’s calendar availability is parsed when the Book me feature is used; 365 days by default.


ServiceEventSafeDescriptionSync: allows to disable the Safe Description feature for an Org or for individual end users.


SalesforceAddinCustomization: disable/enable the local Admin’s ability to set the default (initial) customization to be applied for new RI users or after a reset to default customization. More information here.


InstantSyncEnabled: disable/enable RI Insta-sync.
TriggerSyncOnAdd disable/enable Insta-sync triggering on calendar items creation in MS Outlook Desktop or On the Web version/Gmail
TriggerSyncOnUpdate disable/enable Insta-sync triggering on calendar items updating in MS Outlook Desktop or On the Web version/Gmail
TriggerSyncOnDelete disable/enable Insta-sync triggering on calendar items deletion in MS Outlook Desktop or On the Web version/Gmail


In the latest Revenue Inbox the SalesforceEmailLinkContentToBusinessObject setting is enabled for all instances by default. That means email attachments saved in Salesforce as Content Files will be linked to related business records besides the Task/Email Message object in Salesforce.


The Global setting ServiceEventDeletionStrategy was introduced to manage automatic removal of calendar items from MS Exchange/Office 365 or Gmail calendar by RI Sync if they were deleted from Salesforce calendar by the users.


The ServiceSyncNotRespondedInvitations setting is used to enable or disable syncing in Salesforce of inbound meetings which were left unresponded or were declined by the invitee (who is an RI user). Some companies require that in order to get meetings registered in Salesforce even if they were not explicitly accepted. If this setting is disabled, an attempt to sync in Salesforce of a not-responded or declined meeting results in a sync error “ISE-013: Meeting for attendees cannot be synchronized until the organizer synchronizes it.


SalesforceEventSmartAutoSharing – when this setting is set to 1 (enabled), the list of meeting attendees gets re-synced with Salesforce on every sync session. That is required to get invitees added to the list later registered in Salesforce. If it is set to 0 (disabled), the attendees list gets upsynced to Salesforce only once, on the meeting’s initial sharing.


The SalesforceEventInviteEmployeeOnly special setting allows to exclude external (outside of Org contacts) meeting attendees from being synced in Salesforce by RI Sync and getting meeting invites. It is set to 0 by default, change to 1 to enable external attendees from syncing and invitations sending.


SalesForceAPICallMinCount - total generated API calls number count. As soon as it is reached, RI Sync stops generating API calls

SalesForceAPICallMinPercent - Revenue Inbox API calls percentage among all Salesforce API calls. As soon as it is reached, RI Sync stops generating API calls


An augmented objects auto-resolving mechanism was added, enabled by the global setting SalesforceSmartCreateUnresolvedObjects (disabled by default). How this pattern works: If there’s a match with an attendee’s email address domain in: a) an Account’s website field and b) a Contact linked to the Account, RI creates a Contact linked to the Account with this match. Note that popular personal email domains (,, etc.) are excluded from this pattern: no Contacts are auto-created for meetings sent or received from addresses on these domains.

If the Create Person accounts setting is enabled in RI global settings, Person accounts are created instead of Contacts. If there’s no Account match found to create a Contact and Create Person accounts is disabled, then a Lead is created.

And another added augmented objects auto-resolving mechanism is available, managed by the global setting SalesforceEmailCreateAllUnresolvedRecipients (disabled by default). How this pattern works: if enabled, Accounts and Leads/Contacts are created for all auto-saved incoming and outgoing emails for which no matching Person/Business records are found in Salesforce.


GoogleDisableDriveAttachments (RI Chrome Extension for Salesforce and Gmail only) – this setting allows to define whether files attached to emails as Google drive links could be shared in Salesforce. Google Drive files sharing via RI is enabled by default (set to 0); when set to 1, Google drive files sharing is disabled. This setting is used by those customers who prefer not to authenticate RI access to their Google Drive files, for any considerations.


SalesforceEventAutoTrackIncludingNotShared (0 = disabled, disabled by default). By default, to be saveable in Salesforce an MS Outlook Meeting or Gmail event must have at least one relevant Business or People record to link it to. Enabling this setting makes it possible to save in Salesforce calendar items which have no relevant Business or People records for linking, which is the case if, for example, the email addresses/domains of all invitees are blocklisted from syncing.


GoogleCalendarLastActivityTimeSpan (set to 15 by default). Defines the time span in the past from the current date over which color-marked Gmail calendar events get synced in Salesforce. This is necessary to delimit the range of the sliding time window which applies RI Extension’s events color-marking to events, see point ( 3 ) in this article for more information. After the events pass out of the range they regain the color-marking they had previously, if any.


Auto-saving and Blocklist Intersections

SalesforceEmailAutoTrackMode (default value = “0”, General). This setting defines what strategy is used on “not for syncing” blocklist applying on saved emails linking, while the related setting SalesforceEmailCaptureLinkRule does not involve the blocklist.

Note that for all SalesforceEmailAutoTrackMode setting values any emails can also be saved to a related record if assigned the custom “Salesforce” category or handled by the thread saving mechanism; they get processed by the Add-In with ForceSync.


The ForceSync Scenarios

ForceSync implies that an email gets saved in one of the following ways: A. by category assigning; B. by moving to the dedicated folder; C. by using the Save button in the Sidebar.

On ForceSync saving emails never get linked to existing objects whose addresses are specified in the blocklist (the Global setting ServiceAutoTrackBlacklist) and no corresponding objects get auto-resolved (auto-created) if they are not found in Salesforce. Also see this article for to learn how the blocklist and other filters get applied.


Available auto-track modes:

“0” - General: emails get auto-saved if at least one recipient’s address is resolved in Salesforce, linked to the corresponding object


“1” - Forced: emails get auto-saved, in the ShareForce mode; RI does not create objects for the unresolved recipients; blocklisted unresolved emails are never used for objects creation


“2” - Smart: emails get auto-saved; if all recipients’ addresses are not resolved in Salesforce, RI performs a search among Salesforce objects by unresolved emails’ domains, excluding the popular free email services, and links the saved emails to resulting objects, if any were retrieved


“3” - Useful: emails get auto-saved only if they include at least one resolved external non-blocklisted recipient among the addresses or if an auto-created independent business record gets linked. The latter case implies one of the following: 1. object reference links were found in email body or 2. reference links were found and email thread got identified by conversation text. This updated Blocklist pattern ensures disabling of emails auto-saving in case all email addresses in a new incoming or outgoing email are blocklisted or internal
