3. Select your object in Salesforce and then choose your list view, for example Contact. For Record ID, you need to choose the ID of the selected object in order for Titan to connect the survey responses to the object.


Note: Above, you can see that all your contact information, and the List View you created, has been pulled directly from Salesforce, and is at your fingertips in Titan. You are able to select your Salesforce List View, and send the survey to that List View’s contacts.
