Still Not Working, Let’s Troubleshoot!

If you are not getting dummy lead from your Bot to Close CRM, it may be due to the multiple reasons:
  • Wrong Authorization Details added- You will be required to check and see if all the authorization credentials such as API Token, API key, and/or URL has been entered correctly.
  • Wrong Mapping Set up - Your mapping with BotPenguin Question and CRM parameter is either incorrect or you haven’t added any mandatory parameter.
  • Free plan- You are not subscribed to the paid plan on BotPenguin as integration works only in paid plan.
