Setting up Easy Button

EasyButton allows you to start ingesting data with a click of a few buttons. Let's walk through setting up a new organization and then using Easy Button to ingest Salesforce data.

You will be returned to Fivetran.

7. Click “Save & Test” after you see the green “Authentication Succeeded” message.


If you do not see “Authentication Succeeded”, then likely there was an error with your credentials. Try again, and if that doesn’t work, submit a support ticket.

You will be returned to GrowthLoop.

8. Give your Salesforce source a name and select desired sync frequency from the dropdown menu, then click “Create”


9. You will see the status listed as “Processing” as your Salesforce source (named “My SF Source” below) syncs to your data warehouse

Once you see the status as “Active”, this indicates the raw data has been synced to your data warehouse

The raw dataset will be called raw_salesforce_import_{x} where x is the number of the source that has been set up. In this case, since it was the latest source set up, it is raw_salesforce_import_6.

10. Setup a Dataset and connect your new source tables to begin using them to create audiences.
