Sync contact and event data between Saleforce & Regal Voice

This guide describes how to sync your Salesforce and Regal Voice contact, and how to bring Regal Voice events into your Salesforce contact profile's as a custom Regal Voice event.

In order to create a contact in your Regal Voice account, you need to create a Lead, Contact or Person Account in Salesforce. The Regal Voice integration does not currently work with custom objects. If you have a use case for custom objects, please email [email protected]

Install the Regal Voice Salesforce app & Assign permissions

Step 1: Email [email protected] to get a link to the Regal Voice Salesforce app.

Step 2: Click the link to install the app.

Step 3: Assign RegalVoice Permission set to users who will use the app. There are two permission sets available:

  • For Admins: Users assigned to this permission set can create and edit configuration objects such as Regal Voice Configuration, Attribute mapping and Object field mapping config. They also have access to creating, viewing and editing for all other objects (Contact, Lead, Account, etc.)
  • For Managers: Users with this permission set can see config objects, but not create or edit them. Other objects are available for creation, viewing and editing

To add the desired permission set to the user, you need to go to Setup > Permission Sets > Manage Assignments. Click "Add Assignments" and select users which will use the package features.

Creating a contact in Regal Voice

In order to create a contact in your Regal Voice account, you need to create a Lead, Contact or Person Account in Salesforce, fill in the required fields and save. After that, a contact will be created in the Regal Voice account. During synchronization, only those fields of the object that were added to “Attribute mapping” and for which the “Object field mapping config” object was created will be transferred.

The field “External ID” will be filled by default with the phone number for the Lead, Contact or Person Account.

Regal Voice events on Salesforce contact profile

As part of the integration, Regal Voice publishes sms and call events back to Salesforce so that they appear as cards on a contact's profile.

Events include:

  • Call completed
  • Call recording link available
  • SMS conversation completed
  • SMS message sent
  • SMS message received

Example card below for a Call completed event:

Testing your integration

Once you've completed the above steps, try:

  • Creating a new contact in your Salesforce account. After a couple of minutes, you should see that contact appear on the Audience tab in your Regal Voice account. Click on the contact to see that their contact properties came through correctly.
  • Updating a contact property of an existing contact. After a couple of minutes, check the contact in the Audience tab in your Regal Voice account.
  • From the agent desktop, initiate an outbound sms to one of those contacts. You don't need to actually text anything, just complete the Conversation Summary, and you should see that event appear on the contact in Regal Voice.

Backfilling already existing contacts

If you'd like to backfill existing Salesforce contacts into Regal Voice, download your contacts and properties from Salesforce and share the file in a secure way (for example, you can password protect the excel file then email it [email protected] and share the password over slack).
