You can create a workflow that listens for record creations or updates in Salesforce using the Salesforce trigger. It'll look like this:
Just select the record type from the drop-down menu. You also have the option to limit trigger executions to only those records and record changes created after a certain date.
Take a look at our instructions on setting up the Salesforce trigger here: Salesforce Trigger.
Once the trigger executes, you can inspect the body of the output, and you'll likely see something like this:
This isn't the most useful set of information for the remainder of your workflow, so you'll now most likely want to do a lookup to pull up this record for processing in your workflow.
Add a Salesforce connector immediately after your Salesforce trigger:
Set the Salesforce connector to the operation 'Find records.' You'll want to add a condition to find the record with an ID equal to the ID that comes in with the trigger. In this example, we are looking for a 'Case' record:
The fields are used to specify which fields you want to be returned with the records; in other words, the information you want to receive. Select 'Add to fields' to add the fields you want to receive with your record.
Click on 'Add more than one item to Fields' to add multiple fields to the information from each record you want to be returned.
