Integration Scenarios

There are three areas of Integration with the fullcast.io platform:

  1. Getting Data into the Design app for planning and reporting
  2. Exporting Data out from the Design app for updating transactional systems
  3. Importing and Exporting Policies using the Motion Salesforce Managed App

Importing data into the Design app

The Design App requires various core and related data for planning. Each of the designers rely on the following core data elements being available for planning and the related data:

DesignerCore ObjectRelated ObjectsForeign Key Relationship
### SegmentationCustomers (Companies) Leads, Opportunities, Orders, Invoices, Collections, Subscriptions, Activities, Custom ObjectsAccountId
### TeamPeople (your sales workforce) Accounts, Leads, Opportunities, Orders, Invoices, Collections, Subscriptions, Activities, Custom ObjectsPersonId or EmployeeId or UserId
### ProductsProductsOpportunities, Orders, Invoices, Subscriptions, Custom ObjectsProductId or SKUId
### Channel (Coming Soon)Partners (Companies or Individuals) Leads, Opportunities, Orders, Invoices, Collections, Subscriptions, Activities, Custom ObjectsPartnerId

❗️

Case Sensitive IDs

Ids within the fullcast.io system are NOT case sensitive. Before data can be important, it is important to ensure that there are no records that have the same ID but different case being identified as duplicates.

If you are importing data from salesforce, you must use the 18-digit case insensitive IDs. If you are importing 15-digit IDs from Salesforce.com, you will need to convert them first before they can be imported.

Exporting data from the Design App

Planning App Data can serve a variety of purposes:

  • Business Reporting like QBR charts, team hierarchies, etc.
  • Data Import into your transactional systems such as Salesforce or Microsoft Dynamics
  • Analysis in Business Intelligence systems

There are two ways to extract data out from the app:

In-App Export into Microsoft Excel

It is quite easy to export data into an excel format or to save a chart image.

Exporting data out through the Integration Layer

Users can export data either in a scheduled basis or on an adhoc basis for importing into your transaction systems such as your CRM or your HRIS systems. The following are the information that can be extracted from the fullcast.io design app:

DesignerTopicRelated DetailsKeys

Importing and Exporting Data for Motion App

The fullcast.io Motion salesforce managed application runs on the Salesforce.com platform and as such can be accessed through the various import and export options available for the salesforce platform.

The motion package comes with a number of custom objects to capture the various policy definitions. These policy definitions can be imported and exported out of the salesforce environment.

👍

fullcast.io namespaces

The fullcast.io motion package namespaces all custom objects and fields on standard objects with the "fcio_" prefix. To find the list of custom objects, simply look for this namespace in the Setup.

To import and export data to the Salesforce managed package - please see the following Trailhead from Salesforce.com.
