Enrich Records within Salesforce

Launch Salesforce and navigate to the record page of any lead, contact, or account. Then, click the tab.

Apollo automatically enriches your Salesforce data when you click the tab.

Enriched Data Success Example

To review the enriched records, click the + icon next to a category in the tab. Then, scroll through your newly enriched data.

Playing It Safe

Please note, Apollo can only enrich the Salesforce accounts that include a website in the record details. For Salesforce contacts and leads, Apollo can only enrich those that include either an email or the full combination of first name, last name, and company in the record details. Without these identifiers, Apollo cannot reliably match the records in the Apollo database and enrich the contact, lead, or account with confidence. Rest assured that if it’s not reliable, we ain’t wasting your credits!

If you try to enrich a record without one of the identifiers mentioned above, Salesforce displays an error message.

Enriched Data Example

To overcome the error and enrich the record, click Details on the record page of the lead, contact, or account. Then, click the Edit icon next to the missing field(s).

Edit Icon

Enter the information and click Save.

Save Button

Then, click the Apollo tab and click Enrich.

One Small Step for Security!

Please note, if your enrichment request failed the first time or if you have already enriched a record within the last 30 days, you need to manually click the Enrich button after you click the tab to submit the request again. Apollo does not allow you to enrich a contact or lead more than once within a 30-day period. Every credit counts, after all! However, account enrichment does not cost you any credits. So if you're browsing your accounts and are feeling rebellious, feel free to hit that enrich button galore!

You have now successfully enriched a record in Salesforce with the Apollo for Salesforce app.
