About the Import Salesforce Report Data Task

The Import Salesforce Report data task allows you to import data from a Salesforce report into Qualtrics. Once the data is imported into Qualtrics, use a data loader task to save the data in your desired area on the platform.

Example: One use-case for this task is to import a set of contacts made of recently closed support cases and save them to XM Directory. You can then distribute a follow-up survey to understand if their issue was resolved.

Setting Up an Import Salesforce Report Data Task

  1. Using the navigation menu in the top left, go to Workflows.

    Attention: You may have up to five external connections to your Salesforce account for this task. If you add more than five connections, the oldest connection will be disconnected.

    Qtip: After clicking Add user account, specify the account name and click Connect account. After clicking Connect account, login with your Salesforce credentials.

  13. Select a Primary field for the import.

    Consider the following when choosing a primary field:

    • If the primary field is empty for an entry in the report, then that entry will not be imported.
    • We recommend using “Email” or “Phone number” as the primary field if you plan on running a distribution with the imported data.
  14. Click Add field to import additional fields from the report.
  15. Use the dropdown menus to choose the fields to import.
  16. If needed, click the trash can icon next to a field to remove it.
  17. When finished, click Save.
  18. Click the plus sign ( + ) and select Task.
