Find a record in Salesforce - search by multiple fields

Userlevel 1

hi - 

I simply want to Find a Record in Salesforce by  a Contact’s email address AND Last Name. But the “Field To Search By” only allows 1 field. Can this be solved with a SOQL query? If, so how would it be written? thanks

Hi @Kim S ,

Thanks for reaching out!

I see that you worked with Jared in Support on this question and, as it’s not yet possible in Zapier to search by multiple criteria for the Salesforce record, they have added you to an existing feature request.

This does a few things:

- Bring this to the attention of the developers
- Helps track interest in this feature being implemented
- Allows us to notify you via email if this feature becomes available in the future

While I don't have an estimate on when this might be added, we will definitely notify you via email if it is.

I know that is not the answer you were hoping for, but please let us know if you have any additional questions!

Has this been fixed? Can you add me to the existing feature request as well. 

Is there a workaround for this?

Hi @MCFAdmin ,

I have added you to this existing feature request! 

I see that some users have gotten around this by using paths with a Filter step to check if the Find Record search returned anything. I’m not sure if that fits with your workflow but hopefully it is an option!

Hi Liz, Please add me to the existing feature request.

Hi @Germain (and everyone else on this thread). We have another thread on this topic and one of our most active members proposed a solution:

In that reply he links to this help doc:

Does this help:


Hi all, could I be added to this feature request as well? We have a pretty common need for multiple criteria to be met; a single filter is a bit limiting. Also need to be able to return multiple records based on those criteria, not just a single record—ie, the Find Record(s) action.
