Select Options in S4S Sitecore Form Mapping Wizard

  • Select an S4S Salesforce Connection String from the available connection strings in the “Salesforce Instance” drop-down.

  • This will populate the available Salesforce objects in "Salesforce Object" drop-down.

  • Select Salesforce object owner from the "Salesforce Object Owner" auto fill text box (this option is only available for Salesforce contact and leads)

  • You can map form fields to Salesforce object fields in the "Map Form Fields to Salesforce Object Fields" table.

  • “Salesforce Field Matching Rule” field can be used to indicate which Salesforce fields are used to match existing Salesforce entities. You can select multiple fields. After submitting the form, S4S Generic Submit Action code tries to find existing Salesforce record by matching the field values. If it finds any existing entity, code will UPDATE the existing Salesforce entity and if not, it will CREATE a new one

  • If the form mapping is to a Salesforce contact or lead objects, then there will also be the option for automatically adding a new contact or lead to an active Salesforce Campaign. Multiple campaigns can be selected from the list. For campaigns to appear in the list, it must be set to Active in Salesforce. The campaign selector will not be displayed if any other objects are selected for mapping.

  • Push Sitecore Analytics” field can be used to push Sitecore analytics to the new (or updated) Salesforce contact or lead record. This requires several receiver fields in Salesforce that are installed with a Salesforce package. This option will be displayed only if you select Contact or Lead as the Salesforce object.

When a visitor submits a form which has the “Push Sitecore Analytics” checkbox ticked in the S4S mapping, it will identify the current Sitecore visitor by calling the IdentifyAs() method and then create/edit the Salesforce object and push Sitecore analytics to Salesforce. The IdentifyAs() method requires two parameters called “source” and “identifier”. The Value for the “source” is configured in the S4S.Analytics.IdentifierSource setting in the /App_Config/Include/S4SAnalytics.config file.

<!-- The source to use for identifiers -->
<setting name="S4S.Analytics.IdentifierSource" value="S4S" />

The value for the "identifier" is retrieved from the form field configured in the S4S.Analytics.Identifier setting in the /App_Config/Include/S4SAnalytics.config file.

<!-- The name of the field containing the identifier-->
<setting name="S4S.Analytics.Identifier" value="Email" />

The form field used to identify a Sitecore Contact is set to a default of Email. You can change the above entry so that it specifies another form field that is to be used for identifying a Contact. Once the field has been configured, the Save Action will look in the form for the field and use its value as the identifier for the Contact.

IMPORTANT: By default, the Sitecore identifier is case sensitive. From S4S version 2.931.20224.1 and above, there is a new config setting called “S4S.Analytics.ConvertIdentifierValueToLowerCase” in the /App_Config/Modules/S4S/S4SAnalytics.config file to make Identifier property case insensitive when using S4S.


IMPORTANT: When submitting Lead or Contact Analytics data with S4S Sitecore Experience Forms, you may see Sitecore Error Log entries like the following:

42444 11:26:31 ERROR Error: FuseIT.Sitecore.SalesforceConnector.Services.SalesforceServiceFoundation - Errors in upsert results. Failed Records Count =3

This is due to S4S saving analytics data using the S4S DisparateSalesforceService to conserve API calls. If records already exist Sitecore Visits, Goals or Profiles from a previous form submission or from the Bulk Update Analytics job, the those inserts will fail. While it is logged as an error in Sitecore, there will be no error in the data that is recorded against the Lead or Contact.
