New Salesforce capability idea
Not a product problem. But something that has popped up a few times now when dealing with Salesforce Leads. Having the ability to convert a lead to a contact and be able to configure an action to create a new account / Opportunity or assign . the lead to Account / Opportunity IDs would be be really great.
The only way to achieve this at the moment, with out using APEX is to look for a lead, and if it existing copy all the information to variables. Delete the lead and the recreate a new contact using the stored data in the variables..
Here is the process if you were to build it in Process Builder. https://automationchampion.com/tag/auto-convert-lead-using-process-builder
Thanks for the feedback Dan!
I’ll add this suggestion into the product backlog too.
