I received an email “Attention: Cliently Salesforce Integration Dislabled

It’s possible your integration to your Salesforce account has been disconnected.
In Cliently, go to Settings > Integrations, disconnect the Salesforce integration, reconnect and reenable “Automatically import Accepted contacts as a lead in Salesforce”. If there is an issue with reconnecting, Cliently will let you know what is needed on your Salesforce Profile in order to use this option.

Salesforce Profile Access - In order for your Salesforce user account to accept purchased leads from Salesforce, your Salesforce “Profile” would need to have:
“API -Access” and “Lead Object -Create”.
