Groove Integration

Generate URL and embed code for your images and videos that are compatible with Groove and directly plug them into the Email builder on the Groove platform. 

For our demonstration, we will be creating a Groove Flow, which will launch an email based communication with contacts or leads within Salesforce. We will be sharing a personalised welcome message with Contacts within our Salesforce list.  

This personalised welcome message comprises a personalised image in an email that hyperlinks to a video landing page.

Let’s begin by creating a new campaign. If you are new to creating Nexweave campaigns, you can have a look out our campaign documentation here

Configure a new campaign

  1. Start by navigating to Campaigns and click on Create New Campaign.
  2. Set the Campaign Name and select the Campaign Type. You can read more about the available campaign types here. Since we aim to use both Image and Video templates as a part of our campaign, we selected the campaign type as Image + Video. However, you may choose either Image or Video campaigns, based on your preferences.

3. Next select the Image and Video templates you would like to employ for this campaign.

For our demonstration we have selected:

  1. Image template : Welcome Message - Play
  2. Video template : Welcome to the family
  3. Video thumbnail : Welcome Message 

4. Select your either default or custom landing page URL and click on Save and Proceed  to continue.

Now let’s proceed to setting up the activation method.

Setting the Activation Method

  1. Start by selecting the Activation Method from the drop down. Here, select URL Override Campaign.
  2. You will then be prompted to enter the Fallback values for the Nexweave variables being used in the selected templates. Click on Save to confirm the fallback values

Once you Save the Campaign, you can also Preview the Image and Video templates selected.

3. Click on Launch Campaign. This will then enable you to generate embed codes for the image and video.

4. Once you launch, click on Get Embed Code to open the modal and select the integration platform. Please note: If your audience lies within your Salesforce Leads, select Groove Leads as the integration platform. In our demonstration, since our desired audience lies within our Salesforce contacts (not leads), we have selected Groove Contacts as our integration platform.

5. Then map each of the Nexweave variables with the corresponding Groove Contacts variables by selecting them from the dropdown.

In case the variable list does not contain an appropriate match, you can also create your own variables from within the dropdown.
