  • You must be on Enterprise license or have a consulting space

  • You must have a synced Org Model

  • You must have the managed package installed in your Org

  • You must be assigned to ElementsAdmins permission set in Salesforce

Setting up the batch jobs

In order for Elements to have the correct Profile data to analyse you will need to have the Elements Managed Package installed, and the Profile batch jobs are scheduled.

This is done via the Scheduled Jobs tab in the "Elements Settings" app in Salesforce.
