The best way to do this would be to use lead assignment rules in Salesforce. To do this you will need to have SF admin access.
Here is an article from Salesforce on how to do this: http://na3.salesforce.com/help/doc/en/creating_assignment_rules.htm
For your specific case, you would want to set it up to say: If Account Name is ...., then assign to Sally Smith.
I am very familiar with SFDC assignment rules, however I have a list of 1,000+ companies that SF would have to look through. Do you know if I can upload an Excel file to SF, or would I have to do custom development? I don't think it's feasible to have someone type in 1,000+ lines.
If you have the excel file, you could just copy and paste the list into the rule.
Do you have anything on the SF account that labels them partner accounts? I know its an obvious question, but just wanted to make sure that there isn't something that can separate these out already.
Thanks Thomas! I don't have SFDC admin rights, but I can pass this info along to my Admin. We don't have anything on the account that labels them as a partner, other than the fact that the account owner is the person who manages our channel. Even if we did have that in place, how would that help with new leads coming in with that company name? Thank you.
