Logging in to Salesforce

In order to be able to work with your Salesfoce.com database from Excel, you’ll need to log in to Salesforce. XL-Connector 365 will always load the Log In page on first start or if the previous authentication has expired.

Please note: to log in via SSO using a custom domain, click on the Use Custom Domain on the Salesforce login page as follows:

You will then need to specify your login name and password in the same way you do when logging into Salesforce.com using your web browser.

After the first login, a 30-day trial will be automatically created for you. You’ll receive an email to confirm your email address and will get access to our customer portal.
