CRM Client integration allows you to publish documents and binders to CRM Client from within your Vault. This article will explain administration and configuration options related to CRM Client. To perform these functions, you must have the correct Admin permissions. See Using CRM Client Integration for information on user functionality.

Associated Configuration Options

When CRM Client integration is enabled, the following are available in your Vault:

  • CRM Client Content field: This is a system managed, shared Yes/No (boolean) field. By default, it is not associated with any document types. In order to enable CRM Client integration for a specific document type, you must apply this field to that document type. The field can be associated to multiple document types, subtypes, or classifications.
  • Distribution Package rendition type: To publish presentations and key messages, users must upload the content, appropriately formatted for publishing to CRM Client, using this rendition type. By default, the rendition type is associated to the Promotional Piece document type, but you can add it to other document types as needed.
  • Send to CRM Client user action: You must configure this user action for the lifecycle states in which users should be able to publish a document or binder to CRM Client.

Additional Notes

  • Sub-presentations are not represented in Vault. Users can configure them in CRM.
  • If a CRM field is set up as a unique ID, be careful when mapping a Vault field to it. If the Vault field is set to a value that already exists in CRM, the Send to CRM Client action will fail.
  • CRM Client integration supports single-value and multi-value picklists. This support enables you to set the CLM values for disabling pinch and swipe actions on the iPad.

Field Mapping

When users send a document or binder to CRM Client, the integration tool automatically populates any document fields that exist in both CRM Client and Vault, using the values from Vault. Matching is based on the field’s label, not name. This behavior occurs for all field types (text, date, number, etc.).
