Synchronise Sopro with Zoho and enjoy a seamless integration. It's quick and easy to set up and gives you full control over what to sync.
Sopro’s integration with Zoho offers a simple solution to connect and synchronise your Sopro campaign data with Zoho.
In this document we explain how to set up and activate the integration via the Sopro portal and outline the various available configurations.
The aim of the integration is to support the following data transmissions between Sopro and Zoho:
The integration offers two import options. You can decide which of the following options best fits your requirements:
Before we start, let’s get you logged in and looking at the right page:
Now let’s authorise Sopro to connect with your Zoho account and activate the service.
To start the configuration setup, click on the CRM Integrate tab on the sidebar of your Sopro portal, and then click Activate under the Zoho CRM.
Connect your Zoho account by logging into Zoho and authorising the connection between Sopro and Zoho by clicking Accept.
You will be automatically taken to the next step – General Import Settings.
1. Import Options
This step defines which prospects should be imported from your Sopro campaign to Zoho. You have two options:
2. Import as leads or contacts
Select whether data from Sopro should be imported as Zoho Leads or Zoho Contacts.
In the next section you can select which types of responses to import into Zoho. You will also map the lead status for each type of response to your Sopro campaign . This step has different options based on your selection in step 2.
If you selected “Import all prospects” in step 2, every prospect from your Sopro campaign will be imported to Zoho. The integration can then update the lead status of each, as contacts respond to your Sopro campaign.
First, select the initial status for the contacted prospects, and then assign how the lead status should be updated for each type of response. As contacts respond to your Sopro campaign, your data will automatically update in Zoho. (Lead statuses are only available if leads are imported)
If “Import responders only” option was selected in the previous step, you have the option to select which type of responses to be imported as Contacts, and to map each of the response types with a certain lead status.
his is an optional step. If selected, it allows you to create opportunities and assign them to specific opportunity stages based on the type of response in your Sopro campaign. (Only available if Contacts are imported).
The next step is to map the Company, Contact and Deal properties from your Sopro campaign to the corresponding fields in Zoho.
The source fields can be connected with two types of Zoho fields: Text fields or Dropdown fields. If a text field is selected the default value transferred will be “Sopro”. If a dropdown field is selected, Sopro needs to be added as an option in your Zoho source list.
“On duplicate records, update or skip?” – This option enables updating existing company or contact information in your Zoho with details from the Sopro campaign
Once you have completed the settings and field mapping stages, you can review the setup and click Confirm to activate the Zoho integration.
You blocked out an hour for this and we’re guessing it took between 3 and 5 minutes to complete.
Worst case, you have at least 45 minutes back to revel in your triumph over technology. We recommend either a deck chair or a sun lounger for this stage, usually in good company and with an assortment of appropriate beverages.
