FAQs for Salesforce Integration

What Salesforce Edition(s) work with Coefficient?

Coefficient requires using the Salesforce REST API to import your data from your Salesforce org into Google Sheets. To find out if your Salesforce Edition has enabled API access, please refer to the following documentation here.

A "Salesforce API disabled" error appears when I import from Salesforce (Report). What do I do?

First, we recommend contacting your Salesforce Admin to confirm that the API settings are enabled for Coefficient (App). The Admin will need to go to Setup -> Apps -> Connected Apps -> Manage Connected App and confirm the permissions for "Coefficient". 

If the steps above do not resolve the error, you will need to confirm the "API Enabled" account level settings. This can be done by going to Setup -> Manage Users -> Profiles and searching for "API Enabled" to confirm it is enabled for your profile. Once this is confirmed/enabled, try your Coefficient import again. 

If the 2 steps above have been tried (and enabled) and the issue persists, please contact our support team ( for additional assistance. 

I get an "OAUTH_APP_BLOCKED" error message when connecting Salesforce to Coefficient. How do I fix this?

We recommend you contact your Salesforce Admin to confirm Coefficient is not a blocked app in your Salesforce instance. Feel free to share the following documentation with your Admin. If you need further assistance, please contact support ( 

I added a new field to my Salesforce report. Will my imports automatically include this new field?

When new fields are added to your existing Salesforce report, they should appear at the bottom of your Coefficient import's field list. To include them in your import, you need to edit your import, scroll down at the bottom of your field's list, and manually check the box to add them. You can also drag the new fields and arrange their position to your preference. Re-run the import to update the data on your sheet. 

How do I remove columns from the sheet in a Salesforce report?

Removing columns from your Salesforce import with Coefficient is easy: edit the import, uncheck/deselect the box pertaining to that column/field, and import (Run) your updated report.

My Salesforce instance has enabled Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). How does that affect my Coefficient imports? (ie, 2K Row limitations)

When MFA is enabled in your Salesforce org, you may have to "Reauthorize" Coefficient to your Salesforce instance. (This should only need to be done once.) If your import(s) stop refreshing, open the Coefficient sidebar in Google Sheets and follow the instructions below to reauthorize your Salesforce connection.

To "Reauthorize" your Salesforce connection:

  1. Launch Coefficient in Google Sheets.
  2. Click on the Menu (triple-stack icon in the top right corner).
  3. Select Connected Sources.
  4. Scroll down and locate your Salesforce connection.
  5. Hover over Salesforce and click on the 3-vertical dots, then select "Reauthorize".
  6. Click "Authorize" and log in to your Salesforce account to grant the API permissions.
  7. Re-run your import.

If you have Imports that are pulling in reports from Salesforce, you may need to take the following steps:

1. Reach out to your Salesforce Admin to ensure the “High Assurance Session Required” setting is disabled for the “Reports and Dashboards” operation. For more information, click here.

2. You may need to edit your Salesforce imports to contain a UNIQUE object ID for the report(s) you are importing. (Example: If you have a report pulling Opportunity data, you may need to add the Opportunity ID to the report so that the rows are not limited to 2,000 records. We recommend not using an ID that could apply to multiple records/is not UNIQUE (i.e., Campaign ID). If you need further assistance on this, please reach out to support (
