Once you have the CRM Organization ID, share that ID with your InsideView’s customer success manager (CSM). CSMs need this information to provision your InsideView Refresh account. They will also assign your contract start date and rate plan that you have purchased.

Share the Salesforce or Microsoft Dynamics CRM’s Organization ID to which your InsideView Account ID must be mapped.

Note: A unique InsideView Account ID is assigned to your account automatically in the application and your CSM will have it.

Important Notes:  

  • For Salesforce CRM Org ID, go to Setup Company Profile Company Information and copy the 15 digit org ID. Whenever the CSM enters a 15 digit ID, our current system accepts the 15 digits and converts it to an 18 digit Org ID internally.saleforce_ID.png
  • For Microsoft Dynamics CRM Org ID, sign in to your CRM instance and go to Settings Customizations Developer Resources, then search for the ID of your CRM instance as illustrated below:ms_dynamnics_ID.png
  • Copy the Org ID from Microsoft Dynamics CRM and change it to upper case characters and enclose it with curly braces. An Org ID for Microsoft Dynamics CRM in InsideView Refresh typically uses this format: { 60D1B2FA-FAD6-43C9-B2FD-12610BB15190}.
