Salesforce Chatter Integration


Salesforce Chatter is a real-time collaboration tool that facilitates information-sharing across a social network. When Chatter integrates, the Chatter news feeds display using a Search Results List Widget on a Dashboard of your choice.

How the Integration Works

To integrate Chatter with CSM, export Chatter news feeds to a CSV file using the Salesforce Apex Data Loader interface. The create a Stored Import to point to the CSV file and use the CSM Import Data Wizard to import the CSV file into a CSM Business Object that is designated to store the Chatter data (typically, a new Business Object). After the data imports into CSM, the user builds a Search Results List Widget to display the news feed on a CSM Dashboard. This data export and import can be configured to run on a scheduled basis using the CSM Scheduler.
