How to BCC Emails into Salesforce
What does it mean to BCC my emails into Salesforce?
By automatically BCCing your emails into salesforce, you ensure that you keep a convenient record of correspondence for the leads in your pipeline.
Every time you send a lead or contact an email, it will appear within salesforce right where you need it.
Put simply, it keeps everything in one place, and means you can understand the history of a contact on Salesforce without having to go diving through the email inboxes of every colleague who has ever contacted them.
