- Salesforce Sync Application – To update an account owner in Demandbase when using the Salesforce Sync Application, simply update the owner in specific account record Salesforce. The weekly sync process will automatically sync and update the account owner in Demandbase Conversion within a week. If you do not see this change occur then open a support ticket.

Whenever an account is on the website. The Demandbase Slack Conversion Solution will group pageviews into a session per account. In other words, Insights will not be delivered on every pageview, instead, they will be batched into a minimum 15-minute session or a maximum of 1 hour-long session.
Meaning If an account views just one page after 15 minutes that session will be sent as an alert.
If after the first-page view they continue browsing the site the session will be extended potentially to 1 hour. At that point, they will receive 1 alert for the session with the multiple pages visited.
The specification for the Contacts & Accounts, Account Teams, and Users report can be found here.
The automatic Salesforce Sync occurs weekly.
The existing oAuth will need to be revoked and a new user will need to oAuth with Salesforce.
Can I add Conversion for Salesforce as a Lightning Sub-Tab?
Yes, you can. However, when there are no insights for an account, the tab will be blank and show no content.
If you're utilizing the Salesforce CRM integration then the weekly sync will ingest the latest data from your most recent report.
By default, emails are scheduled to be sent on a weekly basis. The day of the week is configurable. Open a support ticket if you would like to configure the day of the week that emails are sent.
Why are contacts included in some of my alerts?
These individuals are recognized as Pardot "prospects". A prospect is a visitor with a known email address in Pardot. The Conversion tool syncs with Pardot to track these prospects against the information in the Demandbase database. If the prospect is identified on site, they will then end up on a Conversion alert.
Additional information on prospects can be found on the Salesforce site here.
