A Focus on Apps — Jitterbit and Form Assembly

Dancing with Jitterbit: All inquiry and application activity at Allegheny College lives in Salesforce, but at the admit stage, records cross over to the SIS, Ellucian Colleague. Learn how Allegheny was able to use the free Jitterbit Data Loader to build a two-way bridge between Colleague and Salesforce and find ways to leverage their campus-wide reporting tool to supplement Salesforce’s reporting tool.

5 Steps to More Powerful Forms with FormAssembly and Salesforce:
Forms are the fundamental way that users communicate on the web. Designing an effective form system for your organization takes planning and thorough knowledge of the available tools. Although there are several 3rd party form builders that allow you send data into Salesforce, none has such a robust connector to Salesforce as FormAssembly. Learn why this is such a powerful tool and what value it brings. You’ll hear about its limitations as well as its capabilities.
