Installation Package Components

InsideView Refresh managed package will add and populate MatchedStatus and LastUpdatedDateByIV custom fields and an Account Outbound workflow rule when installed. These custom fields and workflow rule components are required to push the matches and updates from InsideView Refresh into your CRM.

Caution: Do not restrict the custom fields and workflow rule from being created in your CRM. By default, Salesforce has a limit of 50 active workflow rules in a production environment and 10 in a Sandbox instance, we recommend you to check the number of active workflow rules in your Salesforce instance. If that number is already 50 in Production or 10 in Sandbox, one of the rules must be set to ‘inactive’ (or deleted), or the following error message is displayed:

Exceeded maximum number (50)/(10) of active workflow rules or approval processes for Account records.

However, you can increase the number of active workflow rules in your Salesforce CRM. For more information, refer to the Salesforce documentation.
