Account Owner API Name
Account Owner API Name is used with the following features:
- Set Lead Owner to Account Owner
- Set Contact Owner to Account Owner
By default, Account Owner API Name is the standard Account Owner (OwnerId) field. However, you have the ability to update this custom setting to the API name of any User lookup field on Account.
For example, let's say you don't want to use the standard Account Owner field, but instead want to add a User lookup field to Account called "Inside Sales Owner". When you create the "Inside Sales Owner" field on Account, the API name will be something similar to "Inside_Sales_Owner__c". This is the value you will want to use for Account Owner API Name in Setup -> Develop -> Custom Settings -> then click "Manage" next to Align.ly Lead-to-Account Settings.
