Setting up the Salesforce Marketing Cloud connector - Content Builder

To set up the Salesforce Marketing Cloud connector, you'll need to be logged into both your Salesforce Marketing Cloud and Taxi accounts. You'll also need your Salesforce Marketing Cloud Client ID and Secret credentials.

  6. Tick these boxes to make sure you give Taxi access to create emails: Channels: Email - Read, Write Assets: Documents and Images - Read, Write Saved Content - Read, Write Data: Data Extensions - Read & Write or Read only This is completely optional. If you don't enable this you will still be able to use the connector with all its functionality, but there will be a slight change in how you set up segments. When turned on, this permission enables you to choose a data extension and choose from column headers to use in if statements. e.g. IF Tier == 'Gold'. Taxi has no access to any of your data, we can only see data extensions and column names. Without this permission, you will need to type in the column header when setting up the if statements.
