Maximize Salesforce Productivity

X-Author for Excel makes it extremely easy to edit and create Salesforce records, including Opportunities, Tasks, Leads, Campaigns, Cases, or any other standard or custom object. Users can work with multiple objects on a single worksheet, regardless of their relationship. Data can also be displayed on multiple worksheets and can interact with formulas or macros.

With data residing in Salesforce and not in data silos, multiple users can work in Salesforce simultaneously using the same Excel template. X-Author logic prevents data collisions, allowing any number of users to safely work at the same time.

X-Author maintains data integrity in a way Excel alone cannot, ensuring that fields for each record remain associated with that record and that all permissions, hierarchies, roles, and rules are observed. Users can sort or filter in Excel without risking data integrity.
Users can update Excel templates when offline and update Salesforce once reconnected, enabling users to work anyplace and anytime.

• Edit any number of related or unrelated Salesforce objects in one Excel worksheet
• Support any number of users simultaneously
• Maintain full Salesforce data integrity working in Excel
• Work in Salesforce while offline
