On the PieSync dashboard, choose Salesforce and iCloud and authorize your apps. iCloud needs to have a specific app-generated password created in order for you to use PieSync. Follow the link on the pop-up in order to generate one.
Configure your Sync
The rules for a two-way sync are already set up for you. They read IF a contact is in iCloud THEN sync the contact between iCloud and Salesforce. And IF a contact is in Salesforce THEN sync the contact between Salesforce and iCloud.
Now you might want to just have your own contacts from Salesforce in your iCloud contacts. In this case, make the second as follows:
IF a contact is in Salesforce and Owned by Me THEN sync the contact between iCloud and Salesforce.
You can also sync custom fields, in this example, we’re syncing the “Department” field in iCloud with the “Department” field in Salesforce.
