Field Definition Type Required
Record Type A dynamically generated list of record types, including custom records. Dropdown TRUE


Input fields are dynamically generated and will reflect the fields that are available in your Salesforce instance for that record type. Any field with _c at the end is a custom field.


For any date field in this action, it must be in standard UTC format. The Salesforce API will automatically convert it to the timezone of your instance.

These are some standard fields that you may see as inputs on your card:

You can write any value to this field, but we recommend matching the exact spelling and capitalization to the available dropdown options to ensure consistency across your records
