Egnyte for Salesforce makes it easy to access and share business files in Salesforce with no limits to storage capacity or file size.You can easily upload files such as datasheets, videos, and presentations from within your agents’ Salesforce portals.Access rules are enforced consistently, whether users access files in Salesforce or directly through Egnyte.

Key Features and Considerations:

  • Collaborate with team members, even if they are not Salesforce users.
  • Organize files using folders and sub-folders within the Salesforce hierarchy.
  • Supports Leads, Cases, Accounts, Contacts, and Opportunities, Campaigns as well as any custom Salesforce objects.
  • Files progress when leads are converted to opportunities through the sales pipeline.
  • Notes & Attachments in Salesforce can automatically be uploaded to corresponding record folders in Egnyte.
  • Admins can create folder / sub-folder templates for new Leads, Cases, Accounts, Contacts, Opportunities, Campaigns, or custom Salesforce objects.

The Salesforce integration is only available for:

  • Customers using Salesforce Group, Professional, Enterprise, or Unlimited editions.
  • Customers who have purchased Salesforce Integration licenses for their employee users.
  • Your Administrators and Power Users (employees). The integration is not available for Standard Users except for the Salesforce communities feature.

How it Works:

You’ll see an Egnyte window in the page layout of any objects you have chosen to integrate with (e.g., leads, accounts, etc). Integrating with an object’s page layout involves adding the Egnyte Canvas App to the page layout.

Once a record is linked with Egnyte, the content associated with it will be accessible through any Egnyte access point (Web UI, mobile apps, Desktop App, etc). Finally, Egnyte’s integration follows the standard Salesforce flow when converting leads to opportunities. Any files you’ve attached to a lead will be copied to the corresponding folder of the opportunity, or the parent account if you choose not to create an opportunity.
