Article summary

Version 2.31

The following changes were made:

  • Automatic call outcome (AI) now exported to Salesforce tasks: Gong’s automatically generated call disposition is now displayed in the Gong activity object.

Version 2.30

The following changes were made:

  • New event flow: You can now get Gong conversations as events by activating the new Gong for Salesforce - Create Event from Gong Conversation flow. The event includes the conversation subject, assign to, related to, description, start date/time, and end date/time details. The event flow is configured as follows:

  • Indication of the primary account/opportunity for a conversation: The list of conversations displayed for accounts and opportunities now includes an indication of the primary account or opportunity for that conversation. This is useful when conversations include multiple accounts or opportunities. The Is Primary field has been added to the Conversations related list for the account or opportunity.

  • New data available in the task: The following data is now available in the task object:

    • Create one task for each activity: The task now includes fields to display the associated accounts and opportunities so that when a conversation is associated with multiple accounts/opportunities, we can create one task. The fields are:

      • Associated Accounts, Text (255)

      • Associated Opportunities, Text(255)

    • New meeting data: To add context to meetings, you can now see whether a meeting was canceled and the number of times a meeting was postponed. The fields are:

      • Meeting Canceled by Prospect, Text(255)

      • # of Times Meeting Rescheduled, Number

Version 2.29

The following changes were made:

  • Change to the flow status custom field: The flow status reflects the current status of the flow the contact is in. We changed the data type from text to picklist with the following options:

    • Active

    • Paused

    • Opted out

    • Removed

    • Completed

    • Removed response

    If you have already manually created the Gong_Current_Flow_Status__c field, change the type to picklist.

  • New flow to create contact roles: In order to simplify the process of defining contact roles for an opportunity, this flow identifies conversation participants who are also contacts in Salesforce and adds them to the contact role if there is a related opportunity. The Gong for Salesforce - Create contact role flow can be run along or it can be added to the Gong for Salesforce - Enrich Contacts and Leads flow as the final step when a contact is created.

Version 2.27

This version includes bug fixes and settings relevant only if you have automated processes that overwrite entities such as a participant in the Gong conversation object.

  • We've added the Gong API User (Salesforce Integration License) permission set, which uses the Salesforce Integration license. The user responsible for setting up the Gong <> Salesforce integration should have this permission set.

  • You can now prevent Gong from overwriting child entities in the Gong conversation object as follows:

    1. In Salesforce, select Setup > Custom Code > Custom Settings.

    2. Click Manage next to Gong Custom Settings and click New.

    3. Select the conversation child entities you don't want Gong to update when a change is made to a call and click Save. The entities you can select include:

      • participants

      • related accounts

      • related contacts

      • related leads

      • related opportunities

Version 2.26

In this version, we've extended the logic capabilities to enrich opportunities with more information. We've also added new reports and dashboards which provide details on whether your team are successfully engaging with potential opportunities.

To extend the logic capabilities, we've added the following flow templates:

  • Gong for Salesforce - Update Main Competitors: Use or customize this template so that when competitors defined in a tracker are mentioned in a call, the competitor is added to the Main Competitors field in the opportunity.


  • Gong for Salesforce - Update Participant Contact Role: Use or customize this template to add the contact role details for participants in calls associated with a primary opportunity.

In addition we've added the following:

  • See how you're engaging with your different opportunities: We've added the Gong Email Activity dashboard, which displays a variety of data on the email contact you have with your various opportunities, such as, the number of emails sent to each opportunity, whether you haven't emailed a contact for a while, and how many different opportunities you have emailed. This dashboard only has data if you import your emails to Salesforce. Learn more.


  • The Gong Email Activity dashboard uses the following new reports:

    Report Name


    Email Activity per Contacts in Account

    Displays the number of emails each contact in an account received over the last 30 days.

    Email Activity per Opportunity Size

    Are you engaging correctly with your opportunities? This report displays the emails sent for opportunities closing at the end of the following month

    Displays a list of opportunities where the most recent email was sent more than 30 days ago.

  • You can now push non-CRM participants, that is participants that were not identified as contacts or leads, into Salesforce. A participant who is not a user, lead or contact is tagged as Unknown in the Participant Type column.
