Let’s dive into the Self-Service Migration and how to use it to migrate from Pipedrive to Zoho. 


Start preparing for the migration to Zoho by going through these pre-migration activities:


  • Filter your database and clean up unwanted records 


  • Create a backup to prevent the loss of items


  • Announce the upcoming CRM update to your team



Migrate from Pipedrive to Zoho


1. Visit Trujay’s Self-Service Wizard. Select Pipedrive CRM from the drop-down menu. Fill in the API Token. Then, confirm your email to get notifications about sample results.


2. Choose Zoho as your new CRM platform and select the URL of your CRM. Click the “Accept” button to allow access to your Zoho account.


3. Click the ‘Fields Mapping’ button to set up the fields you want to migrate to Zoho. If everything looks good, click “Free Sample Migration”.


To check the mapping between object fields, click on the “Change fields mapping” button next to the desired field. You will be redirected to a page with a field list for your source and target CRMs. 


There are two modes for field mapping:


1) Simple Mapping Mode: this mode lets you choose which fields you want to migrate, or you can skip it, however, you will not be able to see the fields’ types.


2) Advanced Mapping Mode allows you to:


  • Find out the types of fields in your source and target CRMs that correspond
  • Check if the field is native or custom
  • Check the field usage in your source CRM
  • Match dropdown fields values
  • Perform advanced mapping for complex fields (fields with multiple lines)
  • Apply filters to see only mapped or only unmapped field lists



After you set mapping fields, click “Start Free Sample Migration”.


4. Check your sample results after the migration from Pipedrive to Zoho. If you’re satisfied, click the “Add Funds to Start Full Migration” button. 



Note: If you want to modify your fields, click “Map Objects”; you can rerun the sample as many times as you need at no cost.



Trujay’s Guided Self-Service Migration


If you’re unsatisfied with the results of your sample migration from Pipedrive to Zoho or were confused by object mapping, we have something called the Guided Self-Service Migration. 


Our Guided Service provides you with an account manager to review the migration and focus on your needs. We can come on and guide you while you’re mapping your fields, or do the whole thing for you from start to finish. 


If you feel like you can map objects on your own but need assistance thereafter, we can jump in at any point and guide you through the rest. If you choose to have us complete the entire self-service for you, you’ll see the entire process done via screen share. 


To get more information on our Guided Self-Service Migration, contact support@trujay.com or reply to your sample migration results email. 


Custom Migration Service


Trujay’s Custom Migration Service is a more personal and less DIY-type of approach. Our account managers will guide you through the entire process. There are four packages to choose from.

  • Personal approach


  • Pre- and post-migration validation
