The CRM Zen Show Episode 151 – Oh, The Places You’ll Go-ogle!

Zoho News

Implementation of the Week

  • Zoho CRM to WordPress Advanced Custom Fields
    • Uses 2 wordpress plugins: miniOrange WP Rest API authentication, and ACF (advanced custom fields)
    • We use the miniOrange plugin to authenticate calls to the WP API via deluge invokeurl tasks.
    • A Post/Listing/Page is created in WordPress with the WP ID written back to the CRM
    • The ACF custom fields are updated with CRM field data 
    • On WordPress, these custom fields act as dynamic placeholders in a post’s design allowing for data to be edited without affecting formatting 

Code Share of the Week

  • Get a Google Place Record by Phone Number
    • No one can deny that Google is the king of big data. So why not use it? With a Google API key that has the Google Places API enabled, you can get a myriad of a business’s info with just a phone number.
