Sending Project Event Data to Salesforce

Salesforce offers automation tools that can be triggered in different ways. One of the ways to trigger an automation is by publishing a Platform Event into Salesforce. Documill Leap takes advantage of this by sending project-related event data into Salesforce as Platform Event. This enables you to build automation triggered by the events that happened in your Leap projects.

Project event data as Platform Event

Currently, Documill Leap is able to send below project event data to Salesforce:

  • Project Status Change

  • Task Status Change

  • All Sign Tasks Completed

In Salesforce, the project event data is captured in a Platform Event called: Documill Leap Project Event. To see the data that Documill Leap Project Event may contain, please refer to: Documill Leap Project Event .

If this data is what you need for your Salesforce automation, let’s continue to the next section to setup Documill Leap with Salesforce Integration User.
