Limitations of Adroll Salesforce Integration Using CSV Files

  • CSV files mostly rely on manual formatting when entering the data, which increases the risk of errors, like missing values or typos. These errors might result in poor data quality during analysis. 
  • You can export a maximum of 50,000 records from CSV files into Salesforce. Dividing the data into small files or batches may also require massive datasets. It can be time-consuming and delay the transformation process. 
  • CSV files are plain text, so they lack security measures and access controls, which might raise concerns about confidentiality when dealing with sensitive information.
