How To Open SmartCloud Connect Synchronization Dashboard (Sync Settings)¶
Synchronization Dashboard is a configuration tool used to set up SmartCloud Connect sync functioning locally, to get a detailed overview of your SmartCloud Connect usage, and to troubleshoot issues. In the Dashboard, you can:
- View synchronization statistics
- View Exchange and Salesforce connection statuses
- Switch to another Salesforce or Exchange account
- Administer your SmartCloud Connect account
- Configure activities synchronization settings
- Monitor and resolve synchronization issues
To open the Dashboard:
- Open the SmartCloud Connect Add-In/Chrome Extension in MS Outlook/Office 365.or Gmail
- Click the ☰ Menu button in SmartCloud Connect Add-In/Chrome Extension and select Sync settings.
When you open the SmartCloud Connect Add-In for MS Outlook/Office 365 for the first time and log in with your Exchange/Office 365 and Salesforce credentials, it automatically starts using these credentials to connect your mailbox to Salesforce and launches the server-to-server synchronization process. You can always change both your Exchange and Salesforce accounts in the sync settings later. Please refer to this article to for more information.
