  5. In the Salesforce Record Types section, select the Record Type that should be assigned to the Lead, Account, Contact, Event, and Case objects. This section displays the Salesforce Record Types that are assigned to your Salesforce profile or Permission Set.
    When a booking is made, new records are created with an associated Record Type in your Salesforce organization.

  6. In the Salesforce Activity Event creation section, select if you want a Salesforce Activity Event to be created when a booking is made. 

    Note If you're using a third-party solution that syncs between your calendar and Salesforce, you should select the option Do not create a Salesforce Event. Learn more about Salesforce Activity Events

  7. In the Bookings created via General links section, choose the object integration option you want for your General links. You can decide to integrate your Booking page with the Lead, Contact, or Case object, or you can decide not to integrate the Booking page with Salesforce.
    When you use Personalized links (Salesforce ID), the object integration is determined by the Salesforce Record ID passed in the URL.

    NoteWhen you work with Salesforce Person Accounts, you will need to configure your Booking page to work with Contacts. When a booking is made, the Salesforce Person Account is automatically updated and a Salesforce Activity Event is added.
