Email data into Salesforce

Hi folks,

I want to create something that I email to members of my organisation that aren't Salesforce users that asks them simply how many hours they've spent on a project, and for their response to be emailed back, directly into Salesforce and populate the custom field on the custom object to which this hour-logging refers. Is there a way to do this?

Many thanks,
Lee

You can use inbound email handler.

Make use of Email Services provided by Salesforce.

 

You need to generate a unique Email Id which acts as a handshake between Salesforce and incoming Email's.

 

You need to write a Class which implements an interface provided by Salesforce as  Messaging.InboundEmailHandler

 

Refer this link for further information.
