Pipedrive is one of the most popular CRM among SMB's and Startups alike.
TexAu integrates with Pipedrive so you can feed leads on autopilot!
Here's a workflow example you can use to use this integration. To learn about the complete process in Sales Navigator, please refer to this article about Hubspot integration:

To integrate Pipedrive with TexAu, you will need an API Key.
First, go to Pipedrive Settings' Personal Preferences. Generate a new token, then copy your unique API Key.
In the Pipedrive module, there are two options:
- Add Person Lead to Pipedrive (contact)
- Add Company Lead to Pipedrive (company)
The process is identical for both.
1. Add a Person (Profile) to Pipedrive
Here in our example, we will use the first one to create a new lead in Pipedrive.
At the end of your workflow, we added the "Add Person Lead to Pipedrive" to create a need lead in our CRM.
Here is a description of all the fields you can map:
- : your Pipedrive API Key
- Lead Title: the prospect's job title
- Person Name: prospect's full name
- Owner ID: your Pipedrive User ID (can be blank by default if you are the Pipedrive admin)
- Org ID: your Pipedrive Organization ID (can be blank by default if you are the Pipedrive admin)
- Email: prospect's Email
You can also set the visibility permission from TexAu to Pipedrive to specify who can see the leads you are creating in your organization.
