Riva is here to make CRM easier, smarter, and in line with industry and regulatory requirements. Our intelligent Sync is one way we deliver on that promise – by creating seamless real-time customer data flow between CRM, email, calendar, task, and contact applications at scale.

Our newest release is ready and delivers some key improvements!

What Is New

Compliant Sync: Tailored to Your Needs

Riva is committed to helping you remain compliant to all the regulatory bodies you answer to. Now, Riva can be configured to leave out sensitive data like calendar fields or the body of emails from Exchange. As a result, this data, which may contain material non-public information, is not synced to CRM and never leaves your premises.  

 

Improve Calendar Accuracy with Meeting RSVPs in CRM

Riva’s new sync configuration, Decline Appointment Polling, detects declined appointments in a user’s Deleted items folder. It then matches them to the appropriate CRM appointment and replaces the incorrect status set by CRM, “Not Responded”, with the correct one – “Declined”. Another data quality wrestling match won by Riva!  

Note: 

  • The feature is turned off by default. To enable: 

 

Managing Riva Connections and Policies Has Never Been Easier! 

Deployment: Riva On-Premise. 

Riva Command Line Interface (CLI) is a tool that allows admins to use Riva services and manage Riva Connections and Policies using the command lines. By integrating these into scripts, Riva removes the need for human interaction, getting your team to be more productive. 

What Is Easier

Salesforce. Tailored to Work for You

Deployment: Riva On-Premise. 

We are always working to make things easier for you. Now Riva allows you to lock available fields so that they don’t get added to the connection when it refreshes. This helps preserve the integrity of customizations that may depend on which fields are connected. 

Renewals You Can See Coming 

Deployment: Riva On-Premise. 

Admins are now notified 30 days before their Riva license is about to expire. Along with the prompt, the License Tab on RivaApp also displays a warning to make sure you don’t experience an interruption in your service.  

What We Fixed

Riva’s Compliance with Google API Changes

Riva now uses Google People API instead of the legacy Google Contacts API which was recently sunsetted.
