How to Sync Zoho Contacts in Aloware
Aloware automatically maps Aloware contacts with corresponding Zoho Contacts or Zoho Leads. The following information is synced between both platforms:
Contact name, phone number, notes, etc.
Calls and SMS related to the contact
📝 Note - Aloware uses the email field to map Aloware contacts with Zoho Contacts or Zoho Leads
Two-way Sync Contacts
Aloware and Zoho integration automate syncing of contact information. The following fields update both platforms.
Lead Source (CRM module)
Lead Status (CRM module)
To sync contacts from Aloware:
In your Aloware account, go to the Integrations tab from the left panel of your screen
Click the Zoho card, and click the Settings button
Click the "Push Contacts" button to bring your contacts and activities from Aloware to your Zoho account
Push Aloware contacts to the Zoho Module you selected
Use when you have contacts in Aloware that are not in Zoho (Rarely occurs)
📝 Note - Contact activities made in Aloware (calls, SMS, emails, etc.) show up as either call records or notes in Zoho, depending on the channel type.

To sync contacts to Zoho:
Click the "Pull Contacts" button to bring in Zoho's contact information in Aloware. It is a one-time pull, and it will be kept in sync in both Zoho and Aloware.
📝 Note - Always click the Pull Contacts button if you are using Aloware frequently
Otherwise, if you are using the Aloware desktop app or web app using click-to-call, information will be synced at the time of the call, text, or contact creation.
Map Zoho Users to Aloware Users (One-way Sync)
As an admin, you can sync Zoho users to Aloware when you click the Connect Zoho users to Aloware button in Integration Settings in the Zoho card.
To map, Aloware initially searches Zoho Contacts Module. If the email is not found, Aloware then searches Zoho Leads. If the email is found in a Zoho Lead, the Aloware contact is mapped to that Zoho Lead.
📝 Note - If Admin creates the user in Aloware, it does not create users in Zoho. It should be created in Zoho and synced to Aloware. New users must have the same email address on both platforms for sync to work.
Aloware will send an email to company admins (with integrations turned on) after the mapping is complete.
Pull Zoho Lead Statuses to Aloware (One-way Sync)
Click the "Pull Lead Statuses from Zoho" to sync updated contact statuses to Aloware.
📝Note - The pull process runs on a queue. Aloware sends you a confirmation email when the process is done. You need to do this only once, and Aloware will keep things in sync from that moment onwards.
