Complete a Task (Salesforce) Data Flow Template



This Data Flow template is made up of two Data Operations that allow app builders to mark a task record as completed in Salesforce. This is achieved by connecting with the Salesforce integration, passing the task_id and marking the task as completed

In Connections Builder, Data Flow templates can be found with pre-populated sample data. However, to meet the requirements of their Journey, app builders should perform the necessary adjustments, such as adding other Data Ops.

Bear in mind that in order to use Salesforce as a datasource, credentials must be set in Settings > Integrations to connect the corresponding account.
