Step 5: Now you’ve set up the triggers, you can go ahead and set up the Action by selecting “Katana” and choosing “Find customer” to match your customer details in Katana and Salesforce.
Step 6: After logging in to your Katana account, you can customize your customer information and search for them to match customers between both accounts. You can do this by selecting “Name” from in this case.
If you want to create new customers, you can select “Create Katana MRP Customer if it doesn’t exist yet?”
Step 7: Once the customer details are filled in you can now create the next action, which will be setting up your sales order imports from Salesforce.
However, to do so, go to “Customer ID”, go to “Custom”, then “2. Find or Create Customer in Katana MRP” and select “ID” from the Katana section.
This ID is not visible within the Katana user interface, but we recommend using it as a Customer ID in the Zap as it is a unique identifier.
Step 8: As an Order Number, choose an appropriate identifier from Salesforce fields. We recommend using ID paired with a keyword “SF-”
This will generate orders like “SF-00000100”, “SF-00000200” and help you identify Salesforce orders in Katana.
Step 9: And to finally wrap this process up, you can finish by defining the:
- Dates created;
- Delivery dates;
- Base price of your products; and
- Tax rates.
