Defining the Simpleview Room Block Integration
The Room Block Integration provides the ability to import bid responses associated with a Simpleview CRM lead into your SendSites pages.
Once your SendSites platform is integrated with Simpleview CRM, an “Import Room Block from Simpleview” icon displays.
The feature appears within the WYSIWYG menu for all Text type Sections. Your SendSites users, when granted access, are able to retrieve stakeholder responses using a CRM Lead ID.

Using Custom Date Responses in a Proposal
As of August 2022, the Room Block Integration allows the use of Lead Custom Date Responses. These responses are automatically included when using the “Import Room Block from Simpleview” feature. However, certain criteria must be met.
The dates for each custom response must span within the Lead’s Primary and Alternate Dates. For example, the image below shows a Lead’s set of Preferred and Alternate Dates. Any custom date responses falling between October 3, 2022, and October 27, 2022, will pass through to the SendSites Proposal.
Additional Details About the Integration
- Response attachments are not included in the pull of data.
- Room Block responses can be imported for all Leads, regardless of status type.
- Once placed into the SendSites Proposal, the Room Block information will not refresh with any changes submitted to the Lead responses.
- All Room Block data can be edited once it is imported into the SendSites proposal.
- Simpleview created the "SendSites Bid Book Data" Report as a tool for working with the Room Block integration. For more information, read the CRM Knowledgebase article.
