NOTE: You must have a cloudHQ business plan to sync with Salesforce. During the creation of sync pair between Salesforce and Office 365 SharePoint, cloudHQ will create the following folders:

  • Data Export: This folder contains all CSV exports created by us and scheduled exports.
  • Reports: This folder contains all your reports.
  • Documents and Files: This folder contains all files and documents inside your Salesforce.
  • Accounts, Campaigns, etc.: This folder contains files, documents, notes, discussions, and summaries for each of your accounts, campaigns, opportunities.

For example, for each account, you will see an “Account_summary.pdf,” which is a summary of the information for that account.
