@GreenDreamer -

What Salesforce connector are you using? 

hi Adam :)

 

i’m using webhooks (if that's what you mean)?

 

This is for salesforce NPSP (non-profit). I’m pulling in donations from raisenow (an online donation platform) using webhooks, and trying to get these to setup a new account in salesforce if its a new donor. But zapier is failing because it says salesforce needs an ID for the account (when creating a new one.

 

thanks for any help!

You might have better luck creating it as a lead, then converting it within SFDC. It’s an extra step, but you’ll end up with the full set of data that SFDC is looking for.
