I'm setting up Analytics / Salesforce Wave and trying to report on Events. The use case here is these Event records are used as a mechanism for logging billable hours.

Unfortunately, I can't see any of these objects from the Dataset Builder interface:

  • Activity
  • Task
  • Event

What's the best bet for enabling these objects in Analytics? Load them in as external data?

I don't believe these objects are supported by Salesforce Analytics as per the Wave Data Integration Guide - Page 15. You can also see Unsupported Salesforce Objects and Fields via below link


Import into Wave - Best practise here would be external load / middleware

    Andrew is 100% correct :-) Sorry I didn't check the limits before the post :-) Apr 26, 2015 at 12:42

FYI, Task and Event objects are now supported by native Salesforce Analytics Cloud dataflow. Now, you should be able to view these objects in the Dataset builder.


It may simply be that the dataset builder interface doesn't support it, because the activities objects are a bit special (they have their own special datamodel to support the way they can have variable associative relationships https://www.salesforce.com/developer/docs/api/Content/sforce_api_erd_activities.htm). I have not verified myself yet, but I suspect you can manage this by manually scripting the JSON for the ELT.
