Important details about this integration

To make the integration work smoothly there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind.

  1. On setup the 100 most recent jobs/contacts will sync from JobNimbus to CompanyCam.
    You'll know the integration is set up correctly when you see your JobNimbus jobs/contacts in CompanyCam! If you have an older job/contact that you want to merge over to CompanyCam, simply edit the job/contact name in JobNimbus and save, this will force sync the job/contact to CompanyCam. 
  2. Customers/Jobs will sync from JobNimbus to CompanyCam, but not the other way around.
    Customers/Jobs that you create in JobNimbus will instantly sync to CompanyCam, but projects that you create in CompanyCam will not sync to JobNimbus.
  3. Photos and Documents will sync from CompanyCam to JobNimbus, but not the other way around.
    The photos your company takes in CompanyCam as well as documents that you scan or upload will all instantly be available in JobNimbus. Photos that you take or upload in JobNimbus will not sync to CompanyCam.
