New Features and Product Updates

Keen to hear what our wise and wonderful developers have been working on this sprint? Here's a sneak peek at the latest updates:

Bi-directional Merge Sync for Salesforce

We've been syncing with your thoughts to improve your experience in Salesforce and Apollo. You can now enable bi-directional merge settings to sync lead, contact, and account merges from Salesforce to Apollo.

That's right, folks. We pampered your saved searches and gave them a new look to improve functionality and streamline how you save or update them.

Saved searches tab in the search section

Map Contact Roles for Your Opportunities

It's Independence Day for Apollo Opportunities! You can now create contact roles in Apollo for your opportunities even if you're not a Salesforce user.

Contact Roles for Opportunities

You can then map them with your contact roles in Salesforce to keep everything in sync.

Contact Roles mapping in opportunities settings

Already Connected Salesforce?

Please note, if you have already integrated Salesforce with your Apollo account, Apollo automatically disables any edits to contact role mapping in Apollo. This is because it isn't possible to sync all your opportunities if your contact roles in Apollo do not map correctly with your contact roles in Salesforce. To prevent sync issues, Apollo reflects whatever contact roles you have configured on the Salesforce side.

Who's it for?

  • You leverage the Apollo Opportunities feature to track your opportunities and want to assign contact roles to each one
  • You are an admin and you want to easily sync your opportunities and their contact roles between Salesforce and Apollo
  • You are on any paid Apollo plan
Where Do I Begin?

If you haven't already, follow the steps to create opportunities in Apollo. Then, open the opportunity to which you want to add contact roles and click the People tab. Click Edit Contact Roles to add contact roles or make any edits.

Bug Fixes

Developers by day, pest control by night. Here are the latest bugs we've squashed:

  • Cultivated compassion in the "Salesforce contact views" people filter. It quit leaving results in the shadows and now displays the results for more than 100 lists at a time.
  • Told off the Salesforce > Apollo sync for judging accounts by their cover and updated the matching logic. Now, all new contacts pulled into Apollo are matched to the right account, not just by the domain, but by name and all other account identifiers.
