  • Convert Text to Metrics to Sales with Einstein Sentiment Analysis

    • Sandy Estrada, Hunter Dunbar, Cervello

    One of the core CRM functions is tracking notes from conversations and meetings. Notes can be difficult to quantify though.

We'll then walk through an example of creating Apex classes, which collect free text from fields, and call the Einstein Sentiment endpoint to quantify the text with positive or negative ratings.
