There are two ways you can access InsideView Sales.
If your company has integrated InsideView Sales with your CRM, you will see an InsideView Sales "frame" inside CRM records. Because the InsideView frame brings in information from outside your CRM, in Internet parlance, it is sometimes referred to as a "mashup."
Configurations can vary. However, you will generally see the InsideView Sales "mashup" from the following CRM record types:
You don't need a separate username or password for InsideView. Simply go to a record in your CRM and scroll down until you see a frame that resembles the one above.
You can browse InsideView tabs from within the CRM "mashup." However, clicking on a company link, people link or certain other commands will will open a new browser window with the standalone InsideView interface.
The standalone interface gives you access to additional features, including InsideView's search feature. So if you don't see a feature you're looking for, try going to the InsideView standalone interface.
If your company has not integrated InsideView Sales with your CRM or you use InsideView features that are not included in the CRM "mashup," you access InsideView in Standalone mode. To go to the InsideView Standalone interface, go to https://my.insideview.com. in your internet browser.
The Standalone InsideView interface opens in a new browser tab or window. If you got to the Standalone interface by clicking a link in the InsideView mashup in your CRM, you can go back to your CRM by selecting the previous browser tab or window.
