Salesforce Feedback & Opportunity Integration
- Value Summary: Identify product gaps, win more deals, unblock sales opportunities, and flag ideas as important.
- Ways to Use: Have your sales team capture feedback from prospects and customers.

The UserVoice admin and Salesforce admin will work together to configure the integration in both systems.

Contributor Sidebar Bookmarklet

Product managers can track the amount of feedback coming in from each team. Contributors can flag ideas as important.

- Setup Summary: Each team member will need a Contributor License to view and capture feedback with this integration (users who are full access admins in UserVoice do not need a separate Contributor license). Team members can install the bookmarklet from a link found in your UserVoice settings.
