Salesforce: Required Permissions

To ensure the AdvocateHub can communicate with Salesforce seamlessly, there are some permissions which must be set. The account which must have these permissions is the one which is logged into your AdvocateHub. 

Below are the basic fields and their required access levels. If you are mapping additional fields, the Salesforce user must also have  Read and/or Write and or/ Modify access (depending on the purpose of the field) to those.

* Fields marked with the asterisk (*) come from the AdvocateHub AppExchange package


The Salesforce account must have  Write and Read access to the fields below:

  • LeadID
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Influitive Referral Source *
  • Title
  • Company
