Zoho Motivator

Advanced Gamification

Advanced Gamification, powered by Zoho Motivator , helps you boost your sales using game mechanics. This integration provides real time insights on your Zoho CRM Sales data and helps you improve sales performance by creating contests to foster healthy competition in your sales team and setting targets to define clear goals that needs to be achieved.

Integrating Zoho Motivator with Zoho CRM is quite simple. Once the integration is enabled, all the data from your Zoho CRM account (standard & custom modules/fields) will be copied into Zoho Motivator within a few minutes. Any changes made to the records in Zoho CRM will be instantly synchronized with Motivator. Motivator does not make any changes to your CRM records. Key events in Motivator such as when a new contest/target is created or when time is nearly up on a contest/target are notified to the users via CRM Feeds.


Profile Permission Required: Administrators need to configure it for users in other profiles.



  • You need an Administrator profile in Zoho CRM to associate your CRM account with Zoho Motivator.
  • You can associate only a single Zoho Motivator account with Zoho CRM.
