Find a Task by ID (Salesforce) Data Flow Template



This Data Flow template is made up of one main Data Operation that allows app builders to search for a task in Salesforce by its ID. This is achieved by connecting with the Salesforce integration and then passing data to this Data Flow.

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.
