OneMerge Free Edition Guided Setup

OneMerge Training – Guided Setup Free Edition

Guided Setup is available to System Administrators within OneMerge Free Edition to assist with the initial Merge Ruleset Configuration, Scheduling Merge Jobs and with any subsequent changes that need amending to the default Application Settings.  You can also clone the Merge Ruleset if you upgrade to OneMerge Standard or Enterprise Edition.

Note: Standard Users can use Guided Setup, once the Salesforce Administrative Permissions Customize Application and Modify Metadata Through Metadata API Functions have been applied to the Profile.

When you first launch Guided Setup from the footer, you will be presented with the Actions that are available to execute:  

  • Configure Merge for a Salesforce Object 
  • Schedule the Merge Job  
  • Manage Application Settings  

 There is also Help throughout which you can choose to hide if you no longer want this displayed on the screen. Simply do this by checking the ‘Hide Help Sections?’ checkbox.
