Field(s) in your HubSpot have custom rules that stop Vainu from adding data to these fields. Please check the error message in question which fields are not valid and what information to add to the correct field. 

If the field is a dropdown, please check the error message for the correct field value. If you need to add the prospect to value "Lead", check what is the value of the "Lead" field. This is usually in lowercase, "lead". Using "Custom Text" option in the export settings will allow you to add data to dropdown fields in your CRM.

            Vainu export settings are unable to transfer data to the field mentioned in the error message. You will see which field is causing the issue by checking the example image above, the field which is causing the problem will be mentioned at the end of the message which in this example is "Billing Country". This happens when Vainu is trying to take the country name to a pick list/dropdown menu in Salesforce and the data from Vainu is not matching the dropdown options.

            How to fix the issue?

            If the field is not necessary you can remove this field from your export settings. Unless the field is mandatory in your Salesforce this will fix the problem. If you wish to include this data in your Salesforce please check the steps below on how to solve the issue.

            1. Go to Salesforce and check how the country names as spelled in your CRM. Remember that Vainu needs the value of the dropdown/picklist field. Here is a Salesforce article on how to check pick list values:

            2. Go to Vainu and Salesforce Export Settings. Remove the export setting for the field reported in the problem.

            3. Add a new row to the export settings. From the left side options (Contact/Account/Signal/Custom Text) in the export settings (Vainu's end) select the option "Custom Text". 

            4. To the empty box next to the custom write the exact country value mentioned in your Salesforce. 

            5. From the right side settings choose the field that was giving the error message.

            6. Save your export settings and try to export a company to your Salesforce.


            NOTE! If you are using multiple databases in Vainu you will need to create custom export settings for each country as the custom text field will always be the same. If the custom text field says "Sweden" and you try to export a company from Finland, then the custom text option will remain as "Sweden". Create export settings for each Vainu country you are using if this is needed.


            Error example 13 ❗️

            Error creating resource Account. Unable to create/update fields: Name. Please check the security settings of this field and verify that it is read/write for your profile or permission set.

                  Dynamics 365 Connection was not successful. Timeout when getting data


                    Screenshot 2019-10-31 at 8.42.06

                    There are a few quick troubleshooting methods that can be tried initially.


                    1. Try to reconnect your Dynamics 365 integration. Authentication to Dynamics has timed out and requires re-authentication for the connection to work.

                    2. Check that your Dynamics user has proper Security Role permissions in Dynamics 365. The user needs to be able to fetch and edit data on all Account, Contact, and Lead fields. You can check this Microsoft article on how to edit user permissions

                    3. Clear the internet browsing cache in the web browser you use. Vainu only supports Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Please ensure that you are using one of these three mentioned browsers. After the cache has been cleared please try to reconnect your Dynamics integration.

                    4. If it isn’t resolved by these initial steps, one thing you can do is check to ensure you are logged in to the correct Dynamics account.

                    5. If all the steps above did not solve your issues, please contact Vainu Support.

                    When exporting companies from Vainu to Dynamics, there may be duplicate detection rules in Dynamics CRM, that will cause an error if they’re not met. Duplicate rules might contain example: company name, business id, address, and domain. To fix this, the Dynamics admin user needs to check the Duplicate detection rules and change them from the Dynamics Data Management settings.

                    Check these articles for help or contact your Dynamics admin user:

                    Turn duplicate detection rules on or off for the whole organization

                        If a field is missing in import or export settings, please check that the field isn't locked or read-only as every user needs to have permission to edit the field. When the field is editable it should appear in the settings.


                        I can't find companies after full import

                        Companies imported from your CRM can be found by using CRM - System filter. If the filter brings zero results please clear your cache. Companies imported from your CRM are stored in the browser cache so removing it will make Vainu fetch the latest data.

                        ➡️ How to remove browser cache

                        If you still can't see any companies after an import check that your full import settings are correct. If matching companies by business ID doesn't bring results, please try matching companies by name. If you are using multiple databases please remember to check all countries from the Country filter.
