GrooveAlly plugin for WordPress

Do you currently use Groove HQ as your helpdesk and Infusionsoft as your CRM system? Great! With GrooveAlly, you have the ability to pull valuable information from Infusionsoft right into Groove’s contact profile.

GrooveAlly was created to increase the efficiency for support teams. What it does is pulls the tag data from Infusionsoft right into Groove, so you can see what tags the client has, and it also creates a link to their user profile in the CRM system and with one click, you are in their profile in Infusionsoft. This eliminates the need to search time after time for the contact by name, email, or phone and can help your clients get the answers they need quickly.

If possible, try downloading the file with a different browser, such as Firefox or Chrome.

Alternatively, you can disable the auto-unzip in the Safari preferences:

Safari -> Preferences -> General, then uncheck the “Open safe files” option.

Now, please re-download the file and once the download is complete, you will then have the proper format to add into WordPress (‘.zip’ extension).
