Step-by-Step Instructions


Typically posting issues are the result of a password or token change. If the password for the login used to allow Salesforce access to Connect expires, you will need to re-verify the Account or the transaction information will not post. In essence, the integration is broken until the account is granted access again.

Please refer to Connect: Third Party Integration for instructions to link your Click & Pledge account to Salesforce in Connect.

Instructions to test your connection

  1. Login to the Connect
  2. Click on Settings in the App Launcher ()
  3. Click on 3rd party Integrations
  4. Click “Edit” button of Salesforce Connection
  1. Click on Verify and check the resulting message. Does it verify?

Post Missing Data to Salesforce

If your connection between your Click &Pledge account and Salesforce was broken, you may easily post the missing data back to Salesforce.

Deactivate Salesforce’s Password Expiration

For many customers, you may wish to deactivate Salesforce’s password expiration to ensure your Click & Pledge information posts to Salesforce.
