The organization I work for is wanting to do a little house cleaning in our Salesforce setup, and they want to start with old tasks. Our phone system syncs via the SOAP API to log all phone calls as Tasks in salesforce, so the quantities of records that have been created in the 4 years we've used the product is staggeringly high compared to everything else.
So, with that in mind, I'm trying to build a script that will delete segments of the records en masse, and I need to separate them out by the date they were created. I can run a report to segment out the data the way I want and give me, say, the number of records created before 1/1/2011, but I'm not seeing any way to achieve similar results with the API. The only date field the object reference guide has that isn't recurring is ActivityDate (aka Due Date). What am I missing, or is this not something I can access through the API?
