How to Set RainKing as Lead Source in Microsoft Dynamics

May 16th, 2017 | by

RainKing’s MS Dynamics configuration allows you to choose the “Lead Source Code” being populated in your CRM when pushing records from RainKing into your CRM. Adding the Lead Source Code to each record being pushed from RainKing to your MS Dynamics will allow you to track RainKing influence on your records.

Steps to Setup:

First, in Dynamics CRM under Settings >> Customizations >> Customize the System >> Entities >> Leads >> Fields find the field for Lead Source Code and open that to view Lead Sources:

Once customizations are published go to RainKing’s Data Connector Setup under Connectors >> Microsoft Dynamics >> Data Connector Setup tab and scroll down on the Leads tab to the Source Tracking section. For Lead Source 1 select to map to the field leadsourcecode, push the icon next to that field and choose the “RainKing” option from your picklist of available Lead Sources:
