Excel Add-in – Insert Hidden Fields

Business Background

Use the Titan add-in for Microsoft Excel to insert hidden fields in a spreadsheet template with access to Salesforce. You can create spreadsheets that can update Salesforce objects without logging in to Titan or Salesforce.

Titan Solution

Titan lets you add hidden fields in templates and spreadsheets with dynamic data from Salesforce directly in Microsoft Excel.

If you want to add conditional logic based on a Salesforce field or record but you don’t want the field or record visible in the document, use the hidden fields functionality.
