Sales CRM - IMAP Email Integration

You can integrate your company email and/or your sales reps email accounts into InflatableOffice, so that any emails sent to or received by customers using your normal email software can now be tied to leads. After setting up, you'll be able to see communication with your customers via the Leads CRM tab.

Setup

When logged in as the admin account, go to Settings->Email Settings. You can setup integration with a single company email box and/or with each sales reps account.

Allow other workers to see emails on leads?
If set to No, other workers will not be able to see email communication loaded from this account. If Yes, then they will be able to see any emails associated with a lead. Emails are associated with a lead if the customer's email address appears in the To, From, or CC fields of an email.
The admin account will be able to see all related emails regardless of this setting.

It's important to note that we do not display email communications between employees, so if this feature is being tested, sending emails to another employee as a test will not work. The email address of the customer should be one that isn't associated with a worker profile. 

Folders and frequency checked
The system will download any messages in the INBOX or Sent folders on your email server. IO will check for new emails to download once per hour.

Attachments and Content
You'll  be able to view the subject, body, and attachments of the emails on the CRM tab, but the attachments will not be accessible via the lead's Attachment's tab.

Integrating with a Gmail account
1. You'll need to first allow access via IMAP. See here for instructions (in the middle under Enable IMAP in your Gmail Settings).

2. Next you'll need to allow less secure apps to access it. See here for instructions (follow the 2 steps listed near the bottom).
