Step 1: Add Demandbase (ABX Cloud) App Package in Salesforce

  • Updated

Context

Installing the Demandbase (ABX Cloud) Package from the Salesforce AppExchange is the first step in connecting Demandbase and Salesforce. It adds a number of Demandbase custom fields, a chart, and a dashboard.

A Demandbase Salesforce Lite integration is also available for customers interested in a read-only integration. See Set Up Salesforce Lite with Demandbase One and Optional Pardot Integration.

What does the Demandbase (ABX Cloud) Package do?

The Demandbase (ABX Cloud) Package adds custom fields to the Account, Contact, and Lead object so you don't have to create them manually. It contains minimal APEX code. See Step 4: Add Demandbase Fields to Salesforce. 

It also comes with one Visualforce component that you can add to page layouts for visual engagement insights. This tabbed chart component offers multiple chart views. See Step 5: Add Demandbase Visualforce Chart to Salesforce. 

In Salesforce Lightning, we offer a Dashboard for users that want to see a graphical representation of Demandbase based reports. See Sales Insights Dashboard and Reports within Salesforce

What does the package not do?

  • This package does NOT modify any existing Salesforce data.
