Common questions for ADF/XML (automotive)

The email I get is a bit hard to read. How can I receive a lead notification in a "readable" format?

Due to the nature of the ADF-XML format, to get a more clear and readable email in your inbox we suggest to activate the email receipt inside your bridge settings.

  1. Open the bridge involved by clicking on its name.
  2. Go to the "Destination" step and click Next.
  3. Activate the email receipt by switching the toggle to Yes.
  4. Type the email address(es) where you want to send the notify and change the subject to what you prefer.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Proceed next until the last step, where you may send a test to see how the receipt is coming.
  7. Click Publish to save your settings.

This feature will send you an email notification to your inbox and the same lead will be sent to your CRM with the right format.

How can I personalize my ADF Integration?

Turn the More Settings switch to yes inside your integration settings. Then you'll be able to personalize all the information as you'd like.

How to set up the Source information?

To define a Source you should follow these steps:

If this field isn't added, we'll send a default source as "Facebook".
