  • Log email to Salesforce. You click one button and it logs for you. This is easier than adding the BCC email address that Salesforce provides as a way to log email.
  • Track views and engagement on these emails. It's nice to know if the email was opened and if links were clicked.
  • Update quick fields in Salesforce directly from their inbox using Cirrus. This prevented reps from needing to click into Salesforce, wait for it to load, then update fields like the phone number or name.
  • If the rep did need to open Salesforce, Cirrus provides a quick button to navigate to the Lead/Contact/Opportunity page quickly.
  • Cirrus would often mysteriously stop working. Our Internal Business Tools team found it difficult to provision users correctly during onboarding.
  • Another reason Cirrus often stopped working was because you needed to clear your cache in Chrome. We needed to perform this step for each user at least once per quarter.

  • I can't think of anything that it does really well.
  • The Salesforce link often doesn't work - I don't know if that's Cirrus or Salesforce, but Cirrus gets the blame in my mind. This means that either we duplicate work in the sales>customer success handoff by consolidating communication information OR we lose it. Losing it is easier, so it's what happens more often.
  • Building campaigns is painful - the integration with Salesforce requires a significant amount of back-and-forth work. If my contacts were better linked or it could be done in fewer steps, I may have a different opinion.
  • Tracking doesn't work consistently. Between being sporadically tagged for tracking (doesn't work automatically) and losing the tracking mid-exchange (subsequent emails can be untracked), I might as well just not have it at all.
  • If we were a more email-centric sales team, I expect I would know more about the software but I've found it unintuitive at best and obstructive at worst.

  • Easily add records to Salesforce using contact information from an email.
  • Interact with Salesforce records in my email inbox.
  • Easily schedule meetings with the meeting scheduling feature.

  • Easily sync email communication to Salesforce from your inbox.
  • See data in Salesforce within your inbox.
  • Add tasks, phone calls, and other items to Salesforce from your inbox.
  • The layout doesn't always match edits made to the Salesforce layout and can require customization.
  • Some related items in Salesforce display as the reference number instead of name in Cirrus.
  • Mobile version is not nearly as user-friendly and is a bit cumbersome since it's not built into Gmail.

  • The meeting scheduler is invaluable as it makes it much easier to arrange meetings at an appropriate time for all
  • Create Salesforce Leads and Contact as it extracts information from the email signature to autofill information such as phone number
  • Viewing Salesforce from within Gmail, rather than having to flick between different tabs on your browser to view all the information
  • I find that having the Cirrus Insight extension on my browser can really slow down by computer, and therefore disable it at times I am not using it

  • Captures and links email correspondence with leads and contacts to their opportunities in Salesforce
  • We submit electronic invoices and very easy to capture the email and pdf attachment within Salesforce
  • Schedule follow up tasks and client meetings from our inbox.
  • I love the Cirrus tool, however, feel as though I have only scratched the surface of functionality and value it could bring our organization. Easy tutorials would be helpful.
  • Some minor bugs lately where saving email timed out.

  • User friendly interface right in your mailbox.
  • Easily record e-mails and attachments to a contact, opportunity or case.
  • Create new accounts and contacts in one step.
  • Responsive customer service.
  • It seems to “break” periodically, which is sometimes hard to diagnose for non-IT users.
  • Would love to be able to attach emails to multiple locations at once.

  • Brings up important information about each contact when I'm in Gmail.
  • Makes it easy to create new accounts, contacts, and opportunities.
  • Email tracking.
  • Regularly asks me to upgrade to a "new" version even though I'm already on that version. A bit of a hassle.
  • Doesn't play well with other plug-ins. I also use and sometimes their formatting gets messed up when both are installed.

  • Clear, clean interface and very easy to use for any type of user.
  • Can customize according to your Salesforce needs.
  • Any Salesforce updates are immediately connected to Cirrus. No waiting for sync.
  • Outlook for Mac could use some work as an add-on because it's hard to read sometimes on my laptop. It's not a sidebar, like the Windows functionality, so it's harder to read.
  • Doesn't always find an opportunity, even though I know it's in our Salesforce system.
  • Randomly shuts down and doesn't log in properly at times. I've had to remove and re-download more than once.

  • Salesforce Logging Features
  • Email Templates
  • Email Tracking is not always accurate - this can be due to the nature of the device and the email client used by the recipient.
  • Gmail app is subject to being glitchy and auto-log out out behavior.
  • Meeting time function is limited in its functionality and is prone to glitches as reported by clients.
  • Send later function works about 85% of the time.
  • Follow up intervals are too short and should provide more customised options.

  • Activity tracking
  • Contact creation
  • Calendar sync
  • If you use Chrome, the tool has essentially become useless as it constantly crashes and forces you to reload your Gmail multiple times per hour.
  • The tool often glitches and forces you to uninstall and reinstall it multiple times per week.
  • Their support staff is terrible and seems to think that all issues can be fixed by clearing your cache. It can't. And telling customers to download and use a different browser is extremely unhelpful. If it's not working in Chrome, fix the issue, don't just expect the user to completely change how they work and what they use so that you don't have to face the issue.

  • Logging activity to Salesforce from Gmail and Google calendar. The integration is seamless.
  • Scheduling follow-ups before I send the email. It also automatically logs a follow-up event in Salesforce.
  • Tracking opens provides useful insight.
  • Completing and creating tasks with the Cirrus Insight sidebar in Gmail is very convenient.
  • I've found the email tracking is not always accurate, especially when sending an email to multiple recipients. It would be great if it could track multiple recipients individually.
  • Logging activity to multiple contact records in Salesforce when sending to multiple recipients would be a beneficial feature.
  • Sometimes it crashes/freezes up, but I'm not sure if that's a Gmail or Cirrus Insight problem.

  • The ability for the 'smart email' integration in Gmail to continue to recognize the desired Object and Record to document the email to is fantastic as a time-saver and is appreciated by compliance.
  • The reminders are one of my favorite new features as they help keep me from having to hop back and forth to SFDC. BIG TIME SAVER.
  • Integrating my Google Calendar to SFDC is a real help, and it even does a good job of looking up the contact based on the email, something Appirio's tool never quite figured out.
  • Email tracking is a great feature as well.
  • Email tracking - I think they need to step up the UI for the tracking summary. I would appreciate if it opened into a separate page in addition to the in-Gmail app to provide greater insight to the opens and clicks.
  • Tagging - I think it would be nice to be able to create a few custom tags and then add those to emails to make it easier to track just sales/service/marketing emails.
  • I think the next level for them will be to have some tracking code we can put on our website to see how our emails are leading people to review information on our site.

  • It syncs from salesforce calendar directly into google apps calendar
  • When viewing an email in google apps, it opens salesforce information for that contact in the sidebar of google apps
  • nothing - it's the best google to salesforce implementation i've seen
