Workflow Considerations

This success and operation of this workflow is dependent on a few different items

  • Each user must be registered with the same email address in both Copper and RingCentral
  • For a call or text to sync into Copper, the contacts phone number must be stored on a Lead or Person record inside of Copper
  • The automation runs each hour, so there will be a delay from the time of the call to when it syncs into Copper
  • If the workflow stops operating, a common issue is the authentication of the accounts (Copper & RingCentral).  You can troubleshoot this by logging into your account and re-configuring the workflow to set up a new authentication.

If you run into any issues, please fill out this form, and we will send you the instructions and you will be able to alert us of the issue.
