How to import Consensus Users into Salesforce (& Secondary Email)

Follow these instructions to import your Consensus Users (as well as Secondary Emails) into Salesforce to allow those Users to connect to their Consensus Account.

The Consensus Salesforce Plugin uses the each Consensus Users email address to connect to their Consensus UUID in order to pass over the needed permissions for them to access the SFDC Plugin. This can be done under the Consensus Users Info tab within the Consensus Integration in Salesforce.

  • If you are using the Secondary Email features within the Consensus Salesforce Professional integration, your Users will need to have their Secondary email setup as the Consensus Email within Salesforce. 


Below are instructions on how to use the Import functionality within Salesforce to add your Consensus Users using a CSV upload.

Getting a list of Users from Consensus

  1. Select the Gear Icon () and select 'Manage Users & Access'
  2. Within the 'Users' tab you will see the 'Download Report' button. Select this button to download the report that will contain the Consensus Users emails for your Users.

You can now use this CSV along with the Users Salesforce Email to add their Consensus Emails within Salesforce.

  1. Go to the Consensus User Info tab and click on the “Import” button.
  2. Select the “Custom objects” tab and click on the “Consensus User Info” object.
