Managing Lead to Account Mapping Settings in Salesforce CRM

  • Updated

InsideView Data Integrity includes native Salesforce workflows that can be used to “activate” InsideView data throughout your lead-to-revenue cycle. You can automate lead-to-account mapping to allow you to better route leads by the account owner, track account-level engagement, and measure overall account Based Marketing (ABM) effectiveness.

The Lead to Account mapping feature helps marketers identify which leads belong to which accounts, fueling their ABM campaigns.

Configure Related Lists for Leads in the Salesforce Account Page Layouts

When you install the latest AppExchange package, it creates an iv__Account__c custom field on the Lead object that is used to search the Account object. InsideView Data Integrity automatically populates this custom field to let you view if the relationship exists from a Lead to a matching Account.

Important Note:

If you want to process more than 200,000 records as part of a query using InsideView Data Integrity, then Lead to Account Mapping flow might not be able to execute successfully. This is due to a SOQL query limitation, and the Salesforce CRM will likely return an error.

Workaround: You can contact the support team and share with them the following SOQL queries:

  • SELECT Id, iv__InsideView_Company_ID__c FROM Lead where iv__InsideView_Company_ID__c = 10322153(use any IV ID that exists in CRM)
  • SELECT Id, iv__InsideView_Company_ID__c FROM Account where iv__InsideView_Company_ID__c = 10322153 (use any IV ID that exists in CRM) limit 1

Ask the Salesforce support team to "index" two fields.  The InsideView Company ID field on the lead and account record should be indexed.


To configure the related lists for Leads in the Salesforce account page layouts, follow these steps:

You must add Related Lists for Leads to your Account Page layout so that CRM users are able to view all leads that are mapped to an account.

  1. Go to Setup and click on Object Manager.


  2. Search and select the Account object.


  3. Click Page Layouts.


  4. Select the Account Layout that you wish to update.
  5. Select the Related Lists item, search and add Leads to the page layout, then click Save.
