Note: InsideView Data Integrity allows you to add criteria only for active contacts.

 5 Select the segmentation and frequency Next you can do the following actions:


    • Select the Record Segmentation options:
      • Manage all contacts (Recommended) - When you select this option, all contacts in your Salesforce CRM are managed and will receive updates from InsideView Data Integrity.
      • Manage a segment of contacts based on custom criteria - When you select this option, you can define a custom criteria to manage contacts based on a dynamic rule.


    • In the Update Frequency area, select the frequency at which you want to run the contacts process to receive updates from InsideView Data Integrity. You can select the following frequency options:
      • Update contacts on creation - This is a default selection. When you select this option, whenever a new contact is created in Salesforce CRM, it will be updated with most the accurate contact information from InsideView Data Integrity.
      • Update contacts now - When you select this option, all existing and new accounts in the Salesforce CRM are updated with latest account data from InsideView Data Integrity immediately upon saving your data management process.
      • Update contacts on schedule - When you select this option, you can define a schedule for updating contacts with information from Data Integrity. You can enter the Start Date, Start Time, and Recurring options as Daily, Weekly and Monthly.


      Note: InsideView Data Integrity will send update notifications based on the frequency settings to receive them.

      In this example, select the default record segmentation and frequency options and then click Next.
