Announcing Native Pipedrive Integration

Are you a Pipedrive user? Or are you looking for a CRM to connect your Woodpecker account with? Here’s the first native integration of Woodpecker with the most popular CRM among our users. Continue reading to learn how you can connect Woodpecker to Pipedrive.

Why did we choose to integrate Woodpecker with Pipedrive?

Pipedrive is a CRM of choice for a significant part of our premium users. They use it to manage their sales pipeline. Plus, they manually transfer all of the leads they generated through a Woodpecker campaign into Pipedrive.

Until now, Pipedrive users were forced to integrate Woodpecker with their CRM via Zapier or a smart BCC option. However, convenient as Zapier is, we wanted a native Pipedrive sync for a more extensive integration.

And we’ve since developed the integration, adding a two-way sync, OAuth access and the option to map more fields.

See how you can benefit from this integration.

What can a native Pipedrive integration do for you?

Here’s how combining Woodpecker and Pipedrive can help you.

Synchronizing data

Now you have 3 synchronization options to choose from:

  • Pipedrive to Woodpecker
  • Woodpecker to Pipedrive
  • a two-way sync

One-way synchronization

You can choose a one-way sync option, which means the data will be updated in one direction, either from Woodpecker to Pipedrive or from Pipedrive to Woodpecker.

The native sync integrates contacts and email click/opens between Woodpecker and Pipedrive for you. To put it simply, prospect data and email clicks/opens from one platform are immediately synced with the other. As soon as you add or modify data in Woodpecker, the same data will be updated or created as a contact in Pipedrive.

The same goes for activity in the Woodpecker campaign. Sent emails, clicks, opens and replies, including auto-replies, are all pushed to Pipedrive. All those things are added as ‘Activities’ in Pipedrive. They are marked as done by default so they don’t disrupt your workflow.

So when you add prospects to Woodpecker, their data will be pushed to Pipedrive too. And what follows is that new contacts are added to Pipedrive. Similarly, if you include a company name in the prospect list that you upload into Woodpecker, the company profile will be created in Pipedrive. You don’t need to do it manually anymore.

The native integration does more than syncing prospect data. If something happens within an email campaign in Woodpecker, such as you mark a prospect as interested, that kind of activity will get transferred to Pipedrive.

Two-way synchronization

Recently, however, we’ve also added a two-way synchronization option, which you’ll find in the General settings tab.

Synchronization options for the Woodpecker Pipedrive integration

What benefits you get with a two-way synchronization:

  • consistent data between Pipedrive and Woodpecker, without any additional effort
  • automatic synchronization and updates of new contacts between both accounts, which saves you precious time
  • a more efficient and streamlined process

Automatic actions

Thanks to the Pipedrive + Woodpecker integration from now on you can now set up automatic actions straight from your Woodpecker account.

You no longer need to do it via Zapier or similar automation tools that allow you to set up automatic actions based on your prospect’s changing situation.

Triggers:

  • Prospect interested (in Woodpecker campaign)
  • Prospect replied (in Woodpecker campaign)

You can select to synchronize data from one specific campaign or all at once. For specific campaigns there will be separate actions you will need to create.

What benefits you get with automatic actions:

  • a streamlined workflow by creating automatic sequences, based on set criteria
  • you don’t have to worry about or remember to add a deal manually after initial setup

Field mapping

You are now able to completely customize a field by clicking ‘add new field’. Previously, the fields you could fill in were already predetermined.

Meaning you can now transfer all kinds of data between Woodpecker and Pipedrive and adjust this integration to satisfy your specific needs.

Authorization

We’ve transferred from using API Key to OAuth (short for Open Authorization), as it is much safer and secure for our users.

What it looks like in Pipedrive

Now, let’s see how it will look in your Pipedrive account.

In Company settings, there’s a set of new activities, such as ‘Campaign email‘, ‘Open’, ‘Auto reply’ and ‘Status’.

As you can see, the details of your Woodpecker campaign performance are automatically transferred to Pipedrive. You can see when an email was sent to a prospect and what was inside of it. You can also see whether they opened the email, replied to it, etc. Bounces, auto-replies, and statuses are transferred too.
