An introduction to Integrate
Here you can integrate social accounts, email platforms, and CRM databases. Integrate enables you to push and pull data in and out of Lexer securely. In this article we will cover all the functionality of Integrate, and provide links to other, more hands on, guides.
Overview of Integrate
When you first open Integrate you’ll likely only have a long list of Available Sources. As you make your way through integrating accounts you’ll see this list split into two areas as detailed below. What is important to remember is you will only ever see one tile per platform. It won’t be until you click on the tile will you see all accounts integrated from that platform.
We’ve also made it very easy to integrate multiple accounts at once, provided they are all linked to one central account. Like when you might have several brand Facebook pages all associated with your personal Facebook account.
What can I do here?
Integrate now manages a lot of tasks that you formerly completed from other areas within the Lexer hub. This is a quick list of all the tasks you can now complete from Integrate:
- Integrate an account
- Reconnect an account
- Create a new activation
- Review a Lexer Survey
- Upload a CSV file to Lexer securely
Integrating an account
Depending on what account you wish to integrate the steps may change slightly. However overall the process is largely the same, in this example we’ll take you through the high level steps of integrating an account with Lexer. For a more detailed look at integrating social accounts, see these articles on specific account integrations.
Reconnecting an account
Should your account become disconnected from Lexer don’t worry, we’ll let you or the original integrator know by email. To them reconnect is a very straight forward process, as shown below.
We’re constantly working on ways to build on the number of services that you can integrate. We currently offer services that will allow emails to appear through the Inbox like social content, services that send audiences from your saved tribes in Identify to a social advertising platform, and services that can shorten the amount of text consumed by links.
