Having all of your data kept in one central CRM is great, but without the right reports, your data is nothing but a number. SalesLoft has created a Salesforce managed dashboard package called Insight from SalesLoft (or Insight, for short).
Insight takes the data created in SalesLoft and builds reports full of activity and Cadence data that will prove your team's productivity and connect the Cadences that lead to more revenue. This dashboard is designed to save your team time and effort by creating activity field types and reports all from one download.
For download instructions, check out our How to install Insight from SalesLoft article.
In this article, you will learn about the Insight from SalesLoft setup and management, including:
- Dashboards & Reports Included in the Download
- Fields Created from Insight from SalesLoft
- Flow Definitions (Visual Flows & Process Builder)
- Salesforce Permission Sets
For additional instructions about moving from a previous dashboard package to Insight from SalesLoft, please follow the How to Update Salesforce Dashboards guide.
If you have any questions or would like help with the installation process, please email your success manager or submit a support ticket.
Insight from SalesLoft contains two separate dashboards. Each dashboard holds a collection of reports that allow a quick view of your team's data.
Things to Note: If you log meeting activity to Salesforce as Events, it may impact some of the reports listed below. Please see our Manage Meetings article to learn more.
Let's take an in-depth look at each dashboard and the reports they contain:
SalesLoft Activity Dashboard
This dashboard gives insights into your rep’s activities. You can filter this data by various date ranges (daily, weekly, months, etc.). By installing the dashboard you can quickly view all steps and activities performed by users and/or based on specific user roles. Insights about active and nonactive Leads, Contacts, and Accounts are also included in this dashboard. Finally, the dashboard reveals Account penetration, aka the number of Leads, Contacts, and Accounts your reps are currently working in SalesLoft.
The following reports are included in the SalesLoft Activity Dashboard:
- All Activities by Users: Every activity completed, broken down by type of activity. Hover over a section in the graph to see specific activity type data.
- All Activities by User Role: Same as above, but broken down by however you define a user role in your Salesforce instance.
- All Cadence Activities by Rep
- All Non-Cadence Activities by Rep
- Overdue Steps (Leads and Contacts): Total number of Cadence steps that are past their due date, based off most recent Cadence step field.
- Day 1 Steps Complete by User: Shows how many People you actually made contact with or who completed that first step.
- Steps Due Today by User (Lead and Contact): Number of steps each user should complete.
- All Calls by User: All calls made, broken up by disposition and sentiment (includes calls outside of a Cadence).
- All Calls by Role: All calls made, broken up by disposition and sentiment (includes calls outside of a Cadence).
- Active and Nonactive per User (Leads, Contacts, and Accounts): Number of active records owned by each user (where active means activity in the past 30 days).
- Active Account Penetration: Shows number of Contacts with activity within the last 30 days per Account (up to 100 Accounts in Lightning view and 20 Accounts in Classic view. To view more results, drill into the report).
- User Call Connect Rate by Disposition and Sentiment: Side-by-side comparison of the connection rates compared to the logged disposition and sentiment.
SalesLoft Outcomes & Results
This dashboard shows what is working in your sales process. The reports are designed to show which Cadences, messaging, and activities lead to overall sales success as measured by outcomes and Opportunity generation. This, in turn, will show the actual dollar amount (revenue) earned from your team's activities and Cadences.
The SalesLoft Outcomes & Results dashboard provides more insight into the following reports:
- Top Cadence by Opportunity Creation (Number of Opportunities Created): The package contains automation that pulls the Most Recent Cadence Name and the Most Recent Cadence Step Number field values on the Contact record and writes it to the Most Recent Cadence Name and the Most Recent Cadence Step Number fields on the Opportunity. This tells you which Cadence created that particular Opportunity. This will occur when any of the following events happen:
- An Opportunity is created as part of converting a Lead to a Contact
- An Opportunity is created from a Contact record
- A primary Contact role is added to an existing Opportunity. The Opportunity must have been created in the last 30 days.
- Top Cadence Step by Opportunity Record Creation: Considers the total number of Opportunities created. Very similar to the Success button in SalesLoft.
- Top Cadence by Opportunity Amount (Top Cadence Based on Pipeline Generation): Considers the total dollar amount from Opportunities created.
- Top Cadences by Closed Won Amount (Amount Opportunities won): Considers the total dollar amount from Opportunities with a Closed Won status.
- Top Cadence by Email Engagement: Based off reply rate of templates, which shows reply count divided by total number of emails sent.
- Non-Cadence Email Engagement by Template: Tracks the email engagement outside of Cadences based on reply metrics.
- Top SalesLoft Email Template: Template with the highest reply rate, based on the number of email replies divided by the total number delivered.
- Top Cadences by Call Connection Rate: Looks at Cadence stats based on total connected call count and positive connections divided by the total number of calls.
- Meetings Scheduled per rep and by role: Two separate reports that show the number of calendar invites that have been set through emails sent with SalesLoft.
- Call Time Leaderboard (Call Duration): Sum of duration of calls in minutes by user.
In addition to the creation of dashboard and reports, the Insight from SalesLoft the fields needed in your Salesforce instance. These are the specific fields that will be used throughout the dashboard package.
All fields created in the dashboard package will be labeled as "SalesLoft1_”.
Things to Note: This package only creates fields that are utilized in the dashboard package. Some activity fields are not created along with the dashboard install. For a list of fields that are not included, scroll below the following table.
After these fields are created, you will need to complete the field mapping in your Activity Field Configuration so that all the activity logs will sync between SalesLoft and Salesforce, which will update the reports.
Insight creates the following fields:
|Active Account||Account||Formula (Number)||SalesLoft1__Active_Account__c|
|SalesLoft Cadence Name||Activity||Text(255)||SalesLoft1__SalesLoft_Cadence_Name__c|

The following fields are NOT created with Insight from SalesLoft. Check out the Recommended Activity Fields for more information on these fields, here.
- Cadence External Identifier
- Call Duration (Things to Note: Call Duration is a standard Salesforce field. So it will appear in your Salesforce, but the package does not create it.)
- Call To
- Email Message Id
- Email Template Id
- Meeting Assigned To
- Meeting Date
- Meeting Duration
- Meeting Name
- Meeting Start Time
- Step Name
Insight uses two flow definitions (one flow and one Process Builder) in Salesforce to help associate potential revenue to Cadences and steps based on the Contact and Opportunity fields.
The flows take the value of Most Recent Cadence fields (specifically Cadence Name and Cadence Step) from the Contact and write that information to an Opportunity record that is created from that Contact.
If you do not wish to include the flow or process builder in your Salesforce org, please follow the deactivation instructions in the Insight from SalesLoft Troubleshooting section below.
Things to Note:
- *For teams on the Professional Edition of Salesforce: The Insight from SalesLoft managed package contains two flow definitions (1 Process Builder, 1 Flow). If your team is on the Professional edition and has more than 3 flow definitions created in your Org, you will not be able to install the Insight from SalesLoft managed package while those extra flows exist. In order to install the package, delete existing flow definitions so that there are no more than three remaining in Salesforce.
- The actions defined in the flow and process are handled for Leads using Salesforce custom Lead field mapping. A process and a flow are required for this automation when creating an Opportunity from a Contact or adding a Contact to an existing Opportunity.
The following flow process builders are included in the initial download of this package:
|Name||How was it built?||Object||Action|
|Auto_Populate_PrimaryContact_from_Contact_Role_Object||Salesforce Lightning Process Builder||Opportunity||- Populates custom Opportunity field 'SalesLoft1__Primary_Contact__c' with the Contact ID from the 'Primary' Contact Role associated with the Opportunity.
- Copies the 'Most Recent Cadence - Cadence Name' field value and 'Most Recent Cadence - Last Completed Step' field value from the Primary Contact Role and records them in custom Opportunity fields.
|Populate_Primary_Contact_Opportunity_Field||Salesforce Cloud Flow Designer||n/a||When an Opportunity has a Primary Contact Role recorded and a null value in the 'SalesLoft1__Primary_Contact__c' custom Opportunity field, this flow copies the Contact record ID from the Primary Contact Role and writes it to the 'SalesLoft1__Primary_Contact__c' custom Opportunity field.|
The Insight from SalesLoft package includes two Salesforce Permission sets. These permission sets provide the correct Field Level Security in Salesforce to the custom fields included in the managed package in order for the package to function correctly. See details on each permission set below:
|Permission Set Name||Purpose|
|SalesLoft Insights - User||Should be applied to all SalesLoft users in Salesforce. This permission set opens up Read/Write access to the Activity custom fields included in the package.|
|SalesLoft Insights - Admin||Should be applied to SalesLoft/Salesforce integration users in Salesforce. This permission set opens up Read/Write access to Lead, Contact, Account, Opportunity, and Activity custom fields included in the package.|
