Support » Plugin: Brilliant Web-to-Lead for Salesforce » Add new field without Salesforce custom field

  • Resolved balpic00



    First of all, thank you very much for your awesome work!

    I need to add a new field (a select field for that matter) for the user to fill, but the result of that field has to be send to the “description” field in my salesforce: I cannot send this input in a SF custom field.

    I am already sending hidden data to the “description” field with salesforce_w2l_post_data.

    TL;DR : The user have to fill a field that I must send to Description and nowhere else. What’s your tip/insight ?

    Thank you a lot!

    You could use a filter (see the read me for filter docs) to append your drop down field value to the description field just before the data is submitted to Salesforce.

    To be safe I’d suggest you use a custom field for that and append it. Otherwise the data will be lost if the append fails for any reason.

    If that not an option, and field name will work as Salesforce ignores any field that doesn’t exist.

    salesforce_w2l_post_data is the filter you want.
