Note: The name “SmartConnector” will be changing to “Integration App” to more clearly establish that our pre-built Integration Apps are built on our flagship Integration Platform as a Service, integrator.io.
*This flow is available only for our Integration App Premium Edition customers.
The NetSuite Item Fulfillment to Salesforce Item Fulfillment flow syncs shipping and fulfillment information from NetSuite to Salesforce in real-time. When you fulfill a sales order in NetSuite, a new Item Fulfillment record is created in NetSuite and the Integration App syncs it to a Salesforce Item Fulfillment custom record.
The Integration App syncs the NetSuite Item Fulfillment record with the Salesforce custom Item Fulfillment object. When you create or update an Item Fulfillment record for a Sales Order, the Integration App associates the data with the Item Fulfillment flow based on the configuration in the flow Field Mappings. The Integration App syncs partially and completely fulfilled orders from NetSuite to Salesforce using a single tracking number for each fulfillment record.
Your support and sales teams now have shipment visibility in Salesforce that allows them to view Item Fulfillment data such as Shipping Method, Fulfillment Quantity, and Tracking Number for an Order.
Understand how the flow works
If you want to fulfill a Salesforce Order with Items listed on NetSuite, make sure that you sync NetSuite items with Salesforce Products.
- The Flow creates a Fulfillment record along with Fulfillment lines for all the NetSuite Item Types.
- If you have a Serialized, Bin or Lot numbered Item Type on the NetSuite Item Fulfillment record, the flow automatically creates a Salesforce Asset record against the associated Account and links the asset with a fulfillment line.
There are two ways to create a Sales Order:
You create a NetSuite Sales Order from a Salesforce Opportunity
After you update a Salesforce Opportunity status to Closed or Won, the Integration App creates a corresponding Account (if, there isn’t one already) and a Sales Order in NetSuite using the flow. Once you approve the Sales Order, you can create an Item Fulfillment record.
When you create or update your NetSuite Item Fulfillment record, the “NetSuite Item Fulfillment to SalesForce Item Fulfillment” flow syncs the record back to Salesforce Item Fulfillment in real-time.
You create a Sales Order in NetSuite
You can create a Sales Order for cash and online transactions in NetSuite. Sales Orders are either created manually (in case of cash transactions) or automatically (in case of online payments). Once you approve the Sales Order, you can create an Item Fulfillment record.
When you create or update your NetSuite Item Fulfillment record, the “NetSuite Item Fulfillment to SalesForce Item Fulfillment” flow syncs back the record to Salesforce Item Fulfillment in real-time.
Before you set up the flow
Before you configure the flow in NetSuite, ensure that you Adjust your NetSuite Inventory. To know more about Adjusting Inventories, refer to your NetSuite Documentation.
