Struggling to pick an app that increases organisation and productivity? Whether it’s for email integration or for synchronising your calendars; we’ve rounded up the 5 most popular apps available on AppExchange.

1. Match My Email

match my email for salesforce

Match My Email is a customisable cloud technology app. Creating 100% email transparency, it adds emails automatically from Outlook, Gmail, MacMail and IMAP, to Salesforce.

Features & Benefits
  • The only ISVForce (independent software vendor) app that enables a user to ‘reply’ to and ‘forward’ an email from inside a Salesforce record
  • Platform Independent: Useful for companies who have a ‘mixed email environment’- whether people are using Microsoft PC’s, or operating Macs
  • The Multimatch feature matches and logs every inbound and outbound email to Salesforce.com; based on email address, domain words in subject lines, and body tags
  • For ease of us, the email messages interface is the same as Outlook and Gmail. Emails are listed in chronological order, and are conveniently presented
  • The app creates an institutional memory of all email correspondence in Salesforce, by creating a comprehensive email log.
What Users Liked

This app is particularly helpful with salesforce users who tend not to use the outlook plugin to "Send & Attach to Salesforce". Full automation allows the emails to populate to Salesforce without additional steps which saves time and more importantly - logs email interaction.Salesforce Expert

What Users Didn’t Like

It's hard to give an objective review, because even Match My Email cannot give you what Salesforce should have done in the first place: dead simple IMAP integration that doesn't need an additional field and therefore clutters up your records.Sales Manager

What Users Liked

It works easily and seamlessly. Providing information that can be beneficial. For instance, when I send an email I like to know when it was opened so I know when to follow up. All in all, it is a simple extension that does what it says it does.Marketing Guru

Ever since I started using CM I have been having issues with emails disappearing and being moved. This is a huge issue and my business is run 100% through email communication. I honestly did not think this issue could be caused by CM until I was asked to re-agree to the terms of service and noticed something in the agreement that makes me not want to continue using them.Marketing Guru

I use Gmail and the best part is the calendar sync. This is especially helpful when I am trying to sync my personal calendar with my business calendar. The Salesforce integration on this app is seamless and when we've had any issue, I can get help quick. I give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up.Salesforce Expert

What Users Didn’t Like

Love the app but don’t like the extension it attaches to all link. Results in very slow opening by recipient as it must go through Zynbit to get to final URL. – Salesforce Expert

This app saved me hours and hours of development work, and I was shocked at how easy it was to use and how customizable it is. The colour coding alone is a huge boon because Salesforce doesn't let you customize colours.Author & SalesForce Consultant

What Users Didn't Like

Your calendar will not work 90% of the time all it does is freeze and jam, it may work one day, and then it won’t for a week. Inconsistent.Salesforce User
