Stay in the Loop With Automatically Created Records in Salesforce
Maintaining an accurate database of customer information is one of the key points for a successful business. This is why companies rely on customer relationship management (CRM) systems such as Salesforce — a cloud-based platform for managing business processes in sales, customer service, and digital marketing. You can adapt your CRM to just about any business need. However, as great as most CRM systems are, customization is necessary if there aren’t enough functions for automating complex business logic. One of, if not the biggest reason companies all over the globe are implementing powerful workflow automation software.
Advanced software can automatically create new Salesforce records with the most up-to-date and accurate information. airSlate’s Bots are exactly the technology that supports workflow optimization, enhancement, and efficiency for cutting unnecessary operational costs.
The Create Salesforce Record Bot tackles repetitive tasks and automatically creates new records in Salesforce using data from completed documents when certain conditions are met. For example, airSlate can automatically transfer data from a recently completed «New Client Registration Form» to create new leads. This enables teams to save time for completing more critical tasks, attract new customers, or support existing ones, all while having up-to-date data on hand.

The records come in different types depending on the case or a user’s preferences. For instance, Opportunities can be of varying record types depending on the source of the revenue (from new leads, existing customers, or resellers).
How does the Create Salesforce Record Bot work?
The Create Salesforce Record Bot serves to automate the specific scope of a workflow by operating based on if-this-then-that conditional logic.

What’s a good example of using the Create Salesforce Record Bot?
