Scenario Overview

In this scenario every time the Primary Contact is changed on an Account, we wish for that Primary Contact's name to be saved to the Account's Description field. The function  FindValueQuickName provides an easy way to do this.

North52 Decision Suite Solution

The North52 Decision Suite solution works like this:

  • A formula of type 'Save-Perform Action' is created that triggers on create or updating of the Account entity's Primary Contact
  • The formula takes the new Contact's Name field and saves it to the Account Description field. 

North52 Decision Suite Steps


  • Create a new formula of type 'Save- Perform Action'
  • Set the Event to 'Create and Update'
  • Set the Source Entity to 'Account'
  • For Source Property select 'Primary Contact'
  • In the Formula Editor, paste in the Formula provided below
  • Click Save
  • The formula is now ready for testing
